SoundCloud Unmutes Pinterest
At SoundCloud we love to help you share your sounds, and be heard everywhere. The ability for your sounds to be integrated into other platforms and services plays a large part of this, which is why we’re excited to announce that your sounds can now be ‘pinned’ on Pinterest!
Pinterest enables users to create virtual pinboards of their favourite things; photos, sketches, websites, and now sounds! Other users’ pinboards can then be explored, and followed, great for discovering new content online.
When you pin a sound on Pinterest, it’s artwork will be displayed alongside your other pins, and the SoundCloud HTML5 widget will launch when the pin is clicked, perfect for listening whilst you browse. Shared sounds are fully attributed, and link back to their page on SoundCloud, so creators will always be credited.
To pin a sound you can either use Pinterest’s ‘Pin It’ bookmarklet, or copy the URL of the sound you want to share onto the site.
(As a bonus, if you’re using our Next SoundCloud private beta, you can even pin a sound directly from its share button on SoundCloud!)
We hope you have fun with SoundCloud and Pinterest. Happy pinning!
