Pin to LinkedIn

I use Pinterest as a visual collector of things that I like: about careers, about leadership, about learning, about tech, and about communications. It is also a great resource for my students to be able to trawl and pick up extra resources that have already been filtered by me as being relevant.

It is useful because I get an image with everything I have posted, I get to write a wee explanation, and it has a more user-friendly search than other tools I have used in the past

What I don't use Pinterest for is things like cooking, crafts or clothing. For me the Pinterest tool is not for private stuff; it is useful for my work.

Currently when you create a pin, you can post it to Facebook. However, for work use, this is not useful. What I would REALLY like to be able to do is to be able to post my pins to LinkedIn.

Of course, I could use Hootsuite to cross-post between digital media platforms. However, while this used to be free, apparently now you have to pay.

It appears as yet that this is not possible. So I thought that I would post an article asking for the facility to post between Pinterest and LinkedIn.

I would be interested if you think this is a good idea.
