Share Your Style on Pinterest!

Share Your Style on Pinterest!



Are you pinning? We added the Pin It button a few weeks ago because we noticed Polyvore sets are particularly popular on Pinterest. (Check out how many people are discovering outfits from Polyvore members like stacy-gustin, htotheb, uniqueimage, and styleofe!)

Now we're making it even easier for you to share your creations! Connect your Pinterest account to automatically pin the sets you create and the items you clip into Polyvore. And of course, you can also use the Pin It button to share any other sets and items that inspire you!

Love,
The Polyvore Team

I like that you're letting members automatically pin their things, but you NEED to take out the pinning other people's sets thing. Yes it's good to be inspired, but what if that person does not want their sets and such exploided throughout the world, what if they want to keep it within polyvore. You're taking away people's security, and when you take away their security you take away their creativity and talent too.
I suggest to take off the pin other's set immedietly before this gets out of hand. And trust me it will fast. Keep it to only you can pin your own sets.

I totally agree that you should only let the account owner to pin the sets. Privacy and the right to decide everything related to one's own sets should be respected.

I agree that we shouldn't be able to pin other people's sets without their permission... so when we publish sets, why not have a checkbox labelled "Allow others to pin my set", just like the fashion/interior design/art & expression check boxes.

Yeah I think it is a good idea but how do you do it?

As a regular set-maker, I do NOT want my sets to be on pinterest! I spend a lot of time on them and the thought of them circulating around the internet within seconds and without any identification of the creator, makes me insane. It should be my own decision as to whether I want my sets to be pinned or not, so I ask that you reconsider enforcing the "pin" button on all of us! We should have the right to choose!

You may have noticed that us members are very protective of our craft and that we taking the issue of "copying" very seriously. How much more is pinning an issue then?

Thanks so much for reading this and I do hope you respect our opinion enough to consider it.

Yep! This is a great idea, I also use the pin bottom every time I create a set:) xoxo

I agree with many, I don't like it either people pinning my sets on pinterest its killing privacy! There will be no hype within the community for excellent creativity. This will eventually become boring place as the crowd will keep increasing. And there will be no longer the use copyrights! This is totally insane to collaborate with pinterest. Please try to understand Polyvore.

Thank you for reading this and hope you consider others opinions.

That's not really fair.
I wouldn't want someone off of polyvore to see my personal sets.

I know it's great publicity for you but not everyone wants there sets to be seem outside of the polyvore community.

I totally agree with everyone who does NOT want other people pinning their sets to Pinterest.
PLEASE do not allow this to happen. I choose not to pin my own sets to Pinterest so why should anyone else be able to?
Thanks for your consideration on this matter.

Anyone from pinterest can pin anything from polyvore anytime they want to even if polyvore took the easy pin it button off. Pinterest has a easy button you can install on your computer tool bar that allows you to pin anything you want from the internet. It's as easy as it gets, so even if polyvore removes it, your sets can still be pinned to pinterest. I understand the concern, but it's already possible. Knowing that, I think it's very helpful to have the button for those of us that do use it. Thanks polyvore!

Lindsy said...

This has happened to me countless times, I spend a lot of time on my sets and there's a particular Pinterest user that pins all of my sets and then they get tons of repins never acknowledging me as the original creator always giving her credit. I've asked her to credit me if she pins my sets without any response so I started adding lindsycarranza.polyvore.com to all my sets so when they get pinned they know who made it.

Jess- getSNAZZY.com said...

I think it's great. Thanks Polyvore!
If you want to make sure to get credit add your website URL or Polyvore name as text in your set. :)

I understand all the concerns about others pinning your sets. It is unfortunate and unfair to have your work copied or stolen. I have not pinned other people's outfits. However, the reality is that, once you post on the web, anyone can copy it. (Pinterest allows users to pin any pictures off the web. I believe there is always a link back to your original post.) You should never post anything on any website which you do not want to be openly shared or copied.

In fact, I believe most of the items on Polyvore are copied from elsewhere on the web. We are probably all using items which were created by others, on other websites.

Styleofe said...

Thank you for mentioning me! (Although, the link is wrong... are you able to fix?)

I love the ease of pinning my own outfits, but I, too, struggle with others pinning without credit. I do wish there was a way to only pin our own outfits, or even to have a pin counter, but I understand if we couldn't. I do appreciate the exposure, so I can't complain too much.

Thank you again!

Ohhhh Just realised some of my stuff has been pinned!!! I understand that some of you want to keep your stuff on here between just us Polyvorians but unforunately once it's online there's not much you can do to stop it being shared but for those who are worried about NOT getting the recognition for your work, don't worry it does link back to your set on here :-)

ACWill said...

Terrific. There are so many collections that thrill me that I just have to share them with my Pinterest follwers. Thanks for making cross branding so easy.

TheStrawberryFields said...

I dont know anything about pinterest but if anyone wants to pin my sets on their profile they can,ive just sent an invitation to see what all the fuss is about.As long as people dont claim that my work is their work i really dont mind people sharing my sets.

Tricia said...

I don't have a copyright on any of the individual pieces and parts that I use to compile my sets in polyvore.

In fact, those images are the creation and designs of awesome fashion and jewelry designers.

I really don't feel like I have a right to possession or privacy when it comes to any of the compilations or compositions created here on polyvore.

If others pin one of the sets I created... I'm perfectly ok with that. But I do think it would be nice if the above mentioned pin referenced the originator's polyvore profile.

Anonymous said...

I dont really see why there would be a privacy concern. As with any use of the internet and social media sites, one should never post ANYTHING you dont want others having access to. So that would mean not inserting private info in your profile or in the content of your sets that you feel is too revealing to unknown viewers.

Secondly,I understand the effort one puts into creating a set and then have some random person pin it to Pinterest or some other site and take credit for the creation. I simply add my link within my set, so if my set is copied to another site without a backlink to my polyvore account, the viewer will see my link within the set. I noticed that now when someone pins a set from Polyvore to Pinterest, it shows direct link of the member who created it i.e. "membersname.polyvore.com" which I think is great!

trish1972 said...

I have pinned some of my items, and the title of my set and my id always come up. Now, another can repin that set and change the info, but if anyone were to click on the pic on Pinterest, it would direct them to the creator's set and page.
I do agree, though, that pinning should be up to the user/creator. However, I'm honored if someone decides my set worthy to pin. :)

Belle said...

Isn't a compliment if someone repin's your set? Doesn't that mean that they appreciate your art, fashion, style and/or talent? You are obviously 'pinning' or using name brands (i.e. chanel, forever 21, etc.) in your sets so isn't the same thing when you use a top from Nordstrom? Whoever repins your sets, the link always goes back to the creator of the set, so why is everyone so butt hurt? I don't mean to offend anyone, but I just don't understand it. If you want to be a stylist or what not, wouldn't this give you a little foot traffic for people to see your style and talent? I don't know but it's just odd that to me about the complaints...you work hard on your sets so why not let others appreciate and see your sets??

just-lala said...

I think is very important that the pin has the author information and some kind of notification when someone pin my sets. I've found some of my sets in Pinterest and I have no idea they've been pinned.
Thanks PV team :)

Robsfriend73 said...

I agree with the comments about 'pinning' someone else's sets... Can you somehow turn it off?

I understand that our 'work' is on the internet, but we chose to be on Polyvore, not on any other website. And if we decide to do so, it should be our own choice!!

But thank you for trying to make things better (again)!!
I ♥ Polyvore!!

Thanks, Naomi
P.S. Please remove the 'advertisements' disguised as comments!!! It will show you actually read the comments.

I am totally like this, it is a great progress. Wish polyvore a better tomorrow.

Repertoire Fashion said...

We are currently adding Pinterest support to our site, glad that it integrates well with Polyvore! Repertoire Loves Polyvore! :)

That is great but how do you make it so that once you have published a creation it doesn't automaticaly pin to the pinterest account you put in?

ccr1 said...

HELP...How do I turn OFF the automatic Pin to Pintrest.
I went to my pintrest account and my Polyvore board was filled with stuff...I had to delete the whole board.
I DO NOT want Automatic pins of every item or set I like to go to Pintrest.

You can stop sharing your outfits to pinterest by going to your settings and go under sharing, find pinterest on the bottom and click disconnect account

All the stuff you shared in Style on Pinterest is really very pivotal in style and fashion arena...I just love those glasses and the purse a lot...Simply amazing!!

Once you post something to the INTERNET - you give up all privacy to it. Anything you put on Polyvore, for example, can be shared and there's nothing you can do about it. Unless you get trademark, copyrights, etc... If you truly want something to stay "private" -- Don't put it on the Internet - DUH!

Karen said...

It's the INTERNET People - You don't have any privacy when you post something to the Internet. You don't have any rights to the sets you create on Polyvore. If you don't want something out there like that, don't put it on the Internet - DUH!

Thanks for posting this useful information. This was just what I was on looking for. I'll come back to this blog for sure!

Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful, that's what matters to me.

I found polyvore THROUGH pinterest. If people hadn't pinned all those wonderful sets, I would not have come here and now be following some fabulous creators, not to mention starting to create my own sets too! I don't understand why you wouldn't want to show off your work? What is the difference between an audience here and an audience there?

Pinterest is no longer an option in my share settings on Polyvore. It used to be but I noticed my new sets weren't updating to Pinterest. That's when I went to check if my Polyvore and Pinterest accounts were still connected and I saw that it's no longer an option. The only connections I can make are with Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, Wordpress and Tumblr, which I currently am connected with. Please fix! <3

Thanks so much for this wonderful website as well as this post. This post is the kind of thing that keeps me on track through. I’ve been looking around for this site after I heard about them from a buddy and was thrilled. Thanks a bunch.
