Some reflections on pinterest Pinterest wants to build interest maps

has written two (link, link) blogs about Pinterest, and now he’s going to write another one. But this one is a self-criticism of some of the ideas in the first two articles. The reason for my reflection was that I recently discovered that when Pinterest was concerned about a person, the word "Follow All" was used, while "Follow" was used alone when Board was concerned. This makes me a little puzzled.

in my mind, there is actually too much inertia based on SNS.

Pay attention to people, or as a friend, originally is the foundation of social network, but in the Pinterest, when you focus on a person, it is the Follow All button, why would a All? What is the All? Think about it for a bit, you know, you are all about, the following ID (all) Boards (board content), and the button is placed on the data side, rather than the usual social networking sites like on the picture below (person).
