Pinterest Bids Farewell to its LIKE Button

Giving emphasis on the “Save” button, Pinterest has decided to remove its “Like” button. For some accounts, this has already been implemented and will soon roll out to the rest of the Pinterest users.

“The No. 1 challenge is getting people to understand that Pinterest isn’t a social network,” CEO Ben Silbermann told Bloomberg.

So, what happens to those beautiful pins you have liked?

Pinterest will save the pins users liked on a separate, secret board called “Your Pinterest Likes”.

At least, those pins you liked and have not decided to save yet are still saved for you to easily go back and refer to when needed.  Should you desire to save the ones you have liked, it can easily be moved to your existing public boards.

My Tabletop Electric Oven

My tabletop electric oven was a gift. I have been eyeing a beautiful oven from the appliance center for a long time but saving to get it will take a lot longer. So, with a friend”s suggestion, and since I am not really planning on using it for business purposes (using it now just for my kids), I told Ronald (yes, he”s the financier for this oven) that I would go for this one.

I have been Pinterest inspired! As soon as I have read the manual for this tabletop oven, I started baking! I have had my share of baking failures but have a atoledo.com lot of successful ones too.

Most of my baked goodies were Chocolate and Banana flavored and Carrot too. I make them during weekends so it will be ready as school snack for my elder daughter, K. I would always let her bring more than she could eat so she can share some to her friends too. Or sometimes, I remind her to eat (if there are leftovers) as afternoon snack while she is travelling home bound.

Last Christmas season, I got the chance to frequently use my tabletop oven – served its purpose very well for some goodies which we made and gave as gifts. I am sure that this oven will last for quite long, besides it being durable (a testimonial of my baker friend, Iris of Project Happiness ), I have been extra careful using it. =) 

Pinterest is Interesting

I was invited my Mommy May of Nshima Servings to join Pinterest. It is like an online collection of your bookmarks. You get to “pin” what interests you and have them categorized too. Aside from that, you can f

ollow other people”s boards and re-pin their pins. I got hooked in an instant! I have made several boards already and pinned a lot. Here”s a screenshot of just 8 of my boards, there are few more boards I didn”t get to capture. LoL!

 

What I find interesting the most is the home improvement category in which I get to see and dream of having our own home beautifully. Pinterest also has thousands of tips in organizing, home decor and DIYs. I really love spending time in this new social media platform.
