Where’s the Pinterest button?
The power, hype and addiction of Pinterest has broken through the social media dam. So where is the damn Pinterest button for the do-it-yourself web page builders, bloggers, writers, photographers and visual content sharers?
We need a Pinterest button
Sure you can find a Pinterest button and some blogs have “follow me on Pinterest” signs. But finding a set of social media icons with with with a Pinterest button is a frustrating paddle upstream.
Fans, friends, family and foes should be able to easily pin exclusive, cleverly written and visually appealing content. Up-and-coming web designers, the little photo blogs, Japanese Lolita fashion blogs, male knitting blogs are all missing Pinterest buttons.
All these blogs and bloggers have differing styles, tastes, and content. Right now, all these folks are searching for a complete matching set of free social media buttons. Including, of course, Pinterest, please and thank you.
Is Pinterest really too new?
Seemingly, graphic designers haven’t yet caught up to the newness of Pinterest. Help us understand. How much more in your face and established does Pinterest need to become? We want to pin and promote our own pictures and quit copying other people’s crap. We need a button to encourage people to copy our crap.
Search any top list of social media icons, and Pinterest is most often embarrassingly missing. Why? All these lists have floated to the top of search engines over the days, weeks, months and now even years. Years and months before Pinterest.

But former trends from the last decade which are still around isn’t always the issue. The post of 115 creative and unique social media icon sets was published March 30, 2012. This list has gorgeous buttons but lacks Pinterest buttons made of denim. Nor can you find a super hero shaped button or a bejeweled flip flop button set with Pinterest. Those jumping on the Pinterest boat want bamboo wood grained buttons or crumpled paper styled buttons or 70s VW van buttons, too.
Need and unavailability
Proving need and unavailability isn’t particularly useful. Finding current icon sets with Pinterest buttons is what we need. Since Pinterest has a strong, fierce fan base of females, it’s not so strange that one of first breakout list of buttons including Pinterest was from Mom Blog Central. Bless her.
Here is what you have to choose from. Here is what you have been waiting for. Just a list. Not a top 8 or hottest 80 or best recommended lists of all time. These are the first, smart, forward-thinking people who have added Pinterest buttons to their social media icon collections.
