What can you do with Pinterest messages?
According to Pinterest, here are a few of the things you can use Pinterest messages for.

Don’t abuse the Pinterest messages.
I’m just going to say it. One of my biggest Twitter pet peeves is personal messages. The only time I get a personal message on Twitter, it says something like, “Thanks for following me on Twitter! Would you please follow me on Facebook? And check out my blog!” Blah. Spammy. I’m excited about Pinterest messages, but let’s all promise not to get all spammy with it, okay? If you are going to send a Pin message, make in genuine! There. I’m done with my rant and plead.
Overall, I am really excited about Pinterest messages! I know I will be using them in my personal life, but it will be interesting to see how the evolve for bloggers. How do you plan on using Pinterest messages for your blog? I’d love to hear!
