How Pinterest Notifications Work (+ How to Interact on Pinterest)

I have already did detailed tutorials of making the most of Google Plus notifications as well as managing your Twitter notifications with Tweetdeck.

Today I’ll follow up on the topic describing Pinterest notifications (as I already covered how great Pinterest is for marketing!) but first let’s sum up all the three for your convenience:

Google Plus

Twitter

Pinterest

Notifies of

When you are added to circles, when you are tagged, when you have new comments on your submissions

New retweets, favorites, follows, new replies

New boards by your friends, new re-pins and likes, new follows, when your FB friends join Pinterest

Delivers notifications to email

Yes (All)

Not all of them

Yes (All)

Best tool to manage

On-site (or extension for Chrome)

Tweetdeck

On-site

Now, let’s see when Pinterest notifies you of what (there’s not as much to talk about as with Twitter and Google Plus):


1. When your Facebook friends join Pinterest

When your facebook friends join Pinterest
Bottom line: This is yet another reason to connect your Facebook account on Pinterest: Utilize your existing Facebook connections!


2. When any of your existing connections create a new board

When any of your existing connections create a new board
Bottom line: If you create a new board, your existing connections will be notified of it (Good way to keep in touch on Pinterest!)


3. When anyone likes or re-pins your pin

When anyone likes or re-pins your pin
Bottom line: Pinning and liking other people’s pins is a great way to gain grateful followers: Utilize Pinterest search!


4. When anyone started following any of your boards

When anyone started following any of your boards
Bottom line: If you follow people on Pinterest, you’ll get followed back. Common sense social media relationship building rule, thanks :)

    This is a useful article, but is there a typo in point 1? Shouldn’t it read “This is yet another reason to connect your FACEBOOK account on Pinterest: Utilize your existing Facebook connections!” ??
