Just saw this on Facebook, "New code lets websites opt-out of Pinterest."
How? Glad you asked. Here's the news direct from LLsocial in response to those who don't want their content 'pinned':
We have a small piece of code you can add to the head of any page on your site:
<meta name=”pinterest” content=”nopin” />
When a user tries to pin from your site, they will see this message:
“This site doesn’t allow pinning to Pinterest. Please contact the owner with any questions. Thanks for visiting!”
They are also testing a 500 character limit to captions. I did notice that recently and wondered what it was about. I don't have a problem with it – unless I can't describe the pic and give authentication in 500 characters. Doesn't seem likely – 500 characters is quite a bit. But, we'll see.
Be sure to read Josh's whole post and don't forget to read the comments. Comments often have extra added content or advice, and they're just worth a read, regardless.
Any thoughts at your end on this new development? Hey, Dorian Wagner, what do you think now?
