Last month Pinterest began to address some of the whiny criticism it’s been facing since its launch by adding in automatic attribution for content from Flickr, Behance, Vimeo and YouTube.
Now, according to the Pinterest blog (called Oh, How Pinteresting!) the platform will be adding these kinds of automatic citations to content that’s been gathered from the likes of Etsy, Kickstarter, Slideshare and even Soundcloud too.
The new attribution will apparently take some time to work across ALL content that’s been pinned from those services in the past, but expect vintage crafts and crazy gadget ideas to have the right citations appear under them on a board near you pretty soon.
As well as the fact Pinterest is taking steps to ensure people are happy about their content being pinned here, there and everywhere, the integration with the likes of Slideshare and Soundcloud proves that the platform is making a real effort to allow you to pin EVERYTHING to your boards. The new inline play feature means you won’t be constrained by images and videos anymore, but you’ll be able to go wild with presentations and mash-ups too.
