Pinterest Rolls Out Video Integration with Vimeo [Updates]

Ads by Google

The popular pinboard, networking, and product sharing site, Pinterest announced on Tuesday that Vimeo.com videos can now be pinned and thus embedded to user boards in the same way video YouTube videos were integrated back in August of 2011.

The video sharing site, Vimeo is similar to YouTube but its content tends include more artistic and professionally shot productions and how-to videos. Pinterest users can post Vimeo videos by the clicking the same ‘Pin It’ bookmarklet used for other Pinterest posts. The videos must be embedded on the Vimeo.com page in order to be integrated with Pinterest.

Pinterest video feed

You can browse and watch video content on individual Pinterest boards, or on the Pinterest Video Feed, which features a wide range of productions–from Ted Talks for Kids, CHOW’s How to Make Ice Cream Using Freezer Bags, to a Pinterest recommended video titled Caine’s Arcade about a 9 year-old boy in Los Angeles who constructs a cardboard arcade. All videos can be viewed within the Pinterest site and shared to other networks.

Pinterest’s integration with Vimeo is a win-win for both sites, but more so for Vimeo. Social media critics and watchers contend that Pinterest is driving more traffic to other sites than Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Google Plus combined. This new Vimeo integration will have special appeal to web users who like sharing fine art and more artistically designed content, which mirrors Pinterest’s visually inclined user base. In just under a year, the value of Pinterest is reported to already be $1 billion.

    this development with video and Pinterest is going to be really BIG with the internet marketing crowd. They’re already really high on Pinterest. And I think it also had great potential for the group of people wanting to learn how to use video in building their offline business.

    That awkward moment you only know now that videos can be pinned on Pinterest even though the feature existed since Aug 2011. Not my fault actually, I never seen anyone pin videos on Pinterest.

    • Bakari Chavanu

      Based on information I read, they integrated with YouTube back in August, and then Vemo this week.

    • Krishnapriya

      Yeah, I get it but seriously I never saw a single on Pinterest all this while. I don’t think many people knows the feature exists.

    • Bakari Chavanu

      It probably depends on who you follow. They have entire section devoted to video uploads–granted it’s not as long as the images posted on there.

      Grest questions, and thakns for asking. I tend to stay away from any cones, mineral oil,petroleum, sulfates,parabens, etcWhy because In my personal experience along with research . I know that these ingredients aren’t for me or my hair.does it matter where they are listed yes, it does because they would have to be invisible, not there at all.last question, No indeed to be honest I have used a few products here and there that may have very well had cones in them and I really liked the product on my hair. but the possible long term affects just was not worth it, there are to many great natural products out with much better ingredients to use great post, take carezainab1AuNaturale007.blogspot.com
