Today on its blog, Pinterest announced that it's not only letting companies set up business accounts (as opposed to personal accounts), but it's also releasing a business-specific terms of service, totally separate from the TOS for regular people. Pinterest cited the contribution of quality content from the business community as a reason for launching these business-specific accounts: "Thousands of businesses have become a part of our community, giving great ideas, content, and inspiration to people on Pinterest. Whether it's Anthropologie sharing awesome clothes, Whole Foods sharing tasty recipes, the Smithsonian sharing fascinating collections, or Amazon making products easy to pin, many of us have been inspired on Pinterest by businesses." http://blog.pinterest.com/post/35710687813/new-tools-for-businesses-in-the-pinterest-community It's important to note that accounts won't look any different than personal pages, aesthetically. So doing this isn't signing yourself up for hours of extra work -- you can convert your account in seconds. If you're setting up your account for the first time, you'll obviously need to put time into setting up boards and pinning images, but the actual account setup will only take you a very short amount of time. How to Convert Your Personal Pinterest Account Into a Business Account Step 1: Go to www.business.pinterest.com and click the red 'Convert your existing account' button. Step 2: Next, select your 'Business Type,' and update your 'Contact Name,' and 'Email Address,' if necessary. Step 3: Still on the same page, fill out the next section, 'Profile Info.' Step 4: Scroll down to the 'Agreement' section, and read the agreement. Then, agree to it. Once you've accepted Pinterest's terms by checking the check box, the 'Convert Account' button will turn red, and you can press it to change your heretofore personal Pinterest account into a business account. What the New Pinterest Business Terms of Service Say http://business.pinterest.com/tos/ * You can only open an account on behalf of a company that you're, well, allowed to open an account on behalf of. * The content you post on Pinterest can be used by other Pinterest users. That means they can not only re-pin it, but they can also modify it, reproduce it, display it, distribute it, whatever, on Pinterest. If they start doing something weird with it outside of Pinterest that they're not supposed to do, Pinterest ain't havin' anything to do with it. * Pinterest expects that any content you post from third-party content creators and owners doesn't violate any laws or infringe the third party's rights.
