Pinterest has been steadily growing in its popularity and currently boasts a huge population, a majority of which is women. The very idea behind the social network made it an immense success, the idea being that you could pin whatever you find interesting on the web, onto Pinterest boards. Others can follow your boards, share your pins and comment on them.


While many content producers had found Pinterest a very useful tool since it brought back hack trackback traffic to their original websites, other haven’t bee so happy.

The chief reason why some content producers had been unhappy with Pinterest is that there is no definite content attribution supplemented on Pinterest’s pins. For instance, you could pin an image from a photo-sharing site but this pin, when on Pinterest, wouldn’t necessarily provide attribution of the original website together with the image.

Naturally, this was a cause of concern for many content producers. In fact, this eventually lead the popular photo-sharing site Flickr to discourage its users from sharing their images to Pinterest.

To tackle this, Pinterest has now added content attribution for a number of popular sites. These include Kickstarter, Etsy, SoundCloud, SlideShare and 500px. Content from these sites will now be linked to their origin and full credit will be given for it.

According to folks at Pinterest, they want “to try to give credit where credit is due. That’s why we’ve always tried to include attribution and direct links to sources of content.”

It’s a welcome move by Pinterest since this would ensure that the original content producers do get rewarded for their content. As a result of the announcement, SoundCloud has reactivated the option of listening to SoundCloud music directly on Pinterest.
