Tiny Tech Tip Tuesday- A Pin Surprise

I found out the most incredible thing this week!  How to find what boards your pins are on.  Why would this even be important you ask?  For a couple of reasons.  One-just to see what kind of boards you are getting pinned to.  Two-so that you don't pin to a board that you've already pinned to.  There are times that a group will get together and pin for each other... you want to make sure you are pinning to a board that doesn't already have that pin!

So, go to the pin that you are wanting to know more about.  In this case, I want to see where this Landforms activity has been pinned so that I don't pin it in the same place again.

Click on the picture to make the pin bigger and NOT the repin button.

See the number in the red Pin it box?  That tells you how many times the pin has been re-pinned.  

Now click the number to see the boards this has been re-pinned to.

 Of course, you can always go to your own Pinterest dashboard and click the pins link to see where YOU have pinned your pin personally.  But in this case, you are now seeing where OTHER people have re-pinned for  you.


  1. I just figured out this same thing the other day! I was going to pin something for my wedding and it said I had already pinned that same thing and then i noticed the little red box with the number and was super surprised to see that you can see where you're being pinned. How fun!

    I also wanted to let you know that I nominated your blog for the Liebster Award! Go check out my blog post to read all about it =D
