Pinterest: Why You Shouldn't Pin Precious Infowickedcupofjoe4/24/13 5:49amFiled to: pinterestevernote7EditPromoteShare to KinjaGo to permalinkOf course by "precious info" I mean that omgawd-I-need-to-save-that recipe, craft, or swoon worthy Tom Hardy image.I don't know why this didn't dawn on me earlier, but this morning it hit me like a ton of bricks: Pinterest—as much as I love thee—is horrible at storing information. In my meager little hunt for a meatball entrée, I came across quite a few incorrectly pinned (a peeve for another time) recipes, as well as recipes where the link was dead. Which means, I'm stuck looking at delicious food images of entrées I'll never be able to recreate. Luckily >this gal!< is technically inclined and knew to look for the cached page. Score!In an attempt to make life easier for others, I attempted to place the recipe itself as the description of the pin, however, you're limited to 500 characters. The recipe I wanted to save had 679, and no matter how I abbreviated and removed excess characters, it wasn't fitting.After fighting the character limit for a few moments, I raised the white flag and opened up Evernote. I'm still an on-again/off-again Evernote user (though I have bookmarked Whitson's article on how to use Evernote correctly and give it a full go once again) so it's usually moments like this when I open it.
