Articles on the fastest-growing social sharing site Pinterest have been circulating virally around the web. Many of them address how to promote yourself as an artist, sell your work, and have fun pinning images on your themed boards.
Then, the doubts crept in. More articles appeared, this time on possible copyright violations and legal issues. Pinterest stepped in with a fix which allowed website owners to opt out and disallow visitors to pin their images. People started wondering how Pinterest would make money, and if they already are.
The jury may still be out, but Pinterest is fun and addictive. It’s fascinating to see how this young company will evolve, how they will become profitable, and whether privacy and copyright issues will throw cold water on the whole concept.
