Q. What is the difference between 'repin' and 'like' ?

not a lot, repins are shared with your followers and only you can see what you've liked. I usually repin so I can file it easy

repin means it goes onto one of your boards, like means it won't, unless u repin!! enjoy the ride!

not really as I can actually see your likes, they just aren't in a news feed =/ so far, pinterest has no privacy. Annoying.

If you 'repin' it will be in one of your 'boards' + show up on your Pinterest pg. If you 'like' not on boards or profile pg.

Like is simply 'like'. When you repin an image, it permanently gets saved on one of your boards... Enoy.

When you 'repin' something, it sticks it onto your board, but 'like' is like on facebook, where you 'like' something.

oh if I like, does it show up in your feed? or just on my page?

8:48PM Tue, August 23 2011

1d1d7b3f917dd07209cf4f8c9661217e_normal @FoxesShop New Zealand

just on your page, but I get an email to say that you have liked one of my pins, but you can also turn the emails off

I will probably be over it by next week. haha. Although if they added a private board feature that would keep me interested!

welcome to one of the most addicted things on the web... :) if you repin an item it is now part of one of your boards.

8:55PM Tue, August 23 2011

1d1d7b3f917dd07209cf4f8c9661217e_normal @FoxesShop New Zealand

yes, I agree! I'd also like to pin inspiration for projects without everyone getting a clue on it first. I don't think...

8:55PM Tue, August 23 2011

1d1d7b3f917dd07209cf4f8c9661217e_normal @FoxesShop New Zealand

people will mind you clogging up their feed! If people get sick of you, they just unfollow ;)

(cont.) If you 'like' it you can view it under your profile page (and it is not beling to any specific board)

66048_146008725443484_146008595443497_242073_669786_n_normal @DaydreamLily

Im going to email and ask for private, hopefully if enough people request they might add the feature.

66048_146008725443484_146008595443497_242073_669786_n_normal @DaydreamLily

I can see this being very time consuming and addictive. But Im going to try it out.

Repin adds to one of your boards of a specific theme, like is for misc cool stuff that you're not 'collecting'.

8:59PM Tue, August 23 2011

Fa51ovdmlas27hrwccow_normal @slowlanenotes South Australia

I meant it in a good way. I can't think now of not using it! It's one of the most inspiring visual tools for me. Enjoy!

if you repin, it ends upon one of your boards. "like" is just like facebook or tumblr likes, or twittter stars

66048_146008725443484_146008595443497_242073_669786_n_normal @DaydreamLily

love your 'Home' board. We have the same taste!

51ddf580dd518087549d514d30d10692_normal @hayleyyyyyyyyyy

repin actually puts it on your page/one of your boards, like just well- likes it

9:38PM Tue, August 23 2011

51ddf580dd518087549d514d30d10692_normal @hayleyyyyyyyyyy

aka repin is to share it, like is to keep it for yourself

9:39PM Tue, August 23 2011

1d1d7b3f917dd07209cf4f8c9661217e_normal @FoxesShop New Zealand

yes do! I'll do that too. Yes, we do have similar taste actually, haha, hard to find others with such good taste ;)

"Liking" an item simply means you've marked it off as something of interest (although, as others mentioned; it's NOT private.) You might choose to "like" something as opposed to "re-pin" because it doesn't quite fit the style or theme of any of your boards, but you don't want to lose it in the mix.
