“Giving credit where credit is due” is always a good adage. It works for most, if not all, situations in life and that extends to online etiquette as well. For instance, in a site such as Pinterest, one can get lost in a sea of gorgeous images — in fact, I do all the time! When you pin, I feel it is important to provide as much information as possible. This would include location, photographer, designer, blogger, artist and/or publication. But how to actually find the information you’d like to share when you are faced with an image that has a bad link and no information to be found?
I wrote this post for our other blog, Fauxology, and it is still relevant today. The tutorial has step-by-step instructions on finding the source of an image and it relates to any and all images, not just on Pinterest. For instance, this is a useful tool to use when writing a blog post or adding images for your fans to see on your company’s Facebook and Google+ pages and/or your Twitter and Tumblr accounts, to name a few. I hope it proves helpful — and please, do leave any questions you may have!
