If you don’t want your images shared, Pinterest has made it easy to disable pinning from your site by adding
meta name="pinterest" content="nopin" to your header. You can also go into Flickr and turn off sharing easily.
Most importantly – before I repin I always click through to learn more about an artist, find more information and make sure it’s linked correctly – what about you?
When done right, with the proper source link, Pinterest is an amazing tool and sharing platform. I’ve found great tutorials, discovered new artists and photographers and your pins keep me constantly inspired.
