Not sure if it's free or not. What I do now is that after signing up, I seemed to be bombarded with stuff that I had no interest in. OK..I might not have set it up right but I binned it.Alder":2cpofmv9 said:I googled a search for a project and PINTEREST came up with offers. Is PINTEREST a free service or is a there a fee payable?
Exactly the same. Spammed to the hiltRogerS":de5i5jlx said:Not sure if it's free or not. What I do now is that after signing up, I seemed to be bombarded with stuff that I had no interest in.

That's pretty much how I use it - although looking at the "abandoned places" pages and the "beautiful starircases" pages is pretty awesome too.Nelsun":2k0n9so5 said:FWIW, you can tame its spamming ways by turning off all the "notifications" it deems to chuck at you. And, while free, it does throw in a number of adverts (non invasive ones) into the lists it displays.
The recommendations are hit 'n' miss but it does attempt to learn from what you look at and pin. It's still a bit meh though.
What I do hang on to it for is improving on an initial idea. Go search for something you're looking to make and click on an image you like. It then lists similar things down below and you can gleam a few design ideas from there and pin them to a [public or private] board for future reference. That's the main utility as far as how I use it anyway i.e. pinching other folks ideas (hammer)
Another good reason to use Duckduckgo. There the search results are ordered by popularity rather than by the amount of money paid to secure a high position. And it doesn't track you, or sell your data on to others.D_W":1bqrgsyt said:......... I'm sure they spend a lot of money to get their searches put up high on google.......
That’s an excellent idea Jonathan, =D> I do a similar thing but with a private Instagram account showing fitted bathrooms & kitchens I’ve installed so prospective customers can see what’s available.Jonathan S":3mqs1pb4 said:I use the pintrest app all the time, I share boards I make with clients, many for colour and material examples.
I've been using it for too many years to remember and I've never received an email from them.
Here is an link to a board I used to give a client an idea of what they are getting...... its all very easy to use and saves me hours of my time in research
