Hi Mayura,

Great job so if anyone needs to know how exactly all of this is done, I'll send them over to your post.

Thanks for pointing this out so clearly. I thought about shooting a video to show everyone how to install the apps but they were all a little different and thought they might take a little too much time.

Thanks so much...

You're welcome and thanks for your compliments Adrienne :) Shooting a video is the best way to reach out more users, but yeah, it may consume more time and effort. And you know, social media is a dynamic subject and tutorials outdate so soon. Eventhough posts can be updated, videos will have to throw away if it's not relevant. However you know the best :)

Thanks for commenting...

Oops... What? Hate Facebook? Ohw I got it ;) Yeah, I found some people (Girls actually), spend more than enough time on Pinterest but not on Facebook. So I've thought of interconnecting each of them to improve visibility and to promote Pinterest among Facebook fans. But I've never thought of such awesome application and it's really looks like we landed on Pinterest :)

Really thanks for stopping by and commenting while you were busy dear :)
