Pinterest continues to grow internationally. In this episode of the podcast I chat with Dutch blogger Archana Haarnak. We take a look at how Pinterest is being used in Holland as well as how easy it has become to connect with and be inspired by people on a global scale.
Archana blogs at Archana.nl and has a passion for interior design and for Pinterest. Most of her blog is written in Dutch but with Google translator, it can easily be translated into English.

Just incase you missed the post on the Oh So Pinteresting Facebook page, I came across an article from Help Net Security about a fake Pinterest tool. It installs malware that collects user names and passwords from the sites you visit.
The fake tool is linked to from fake pins within Pinterest. A pop-up appears when you click through the pin and the page opens. It’s easy to see why people would fall for it since they were just on Pinterest. NEVER install anything to your computer unless you’re sure it’s coming from a trusted source.
Official Pinterest buttons and widgets can be found at about.pinterest.com/goodies. Tools from other developers are available but before installing them, do some research to make sure that they’re reputable.
