  1. I have been taking a lot of classes lately and this word “pin it” keeps coming up. I am excited to start using it on all my real estate.

  2. WHERE is the “pin it” button?! I’m in my listings and using the drop down menu “Edit this listing” I see no pin it instruction set. I see tweet, i see craigs, NO PIN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Hi George!

      When you’re in the listing, click on the “Photos View” tab. When you do that, it will open the photos view and the “Pin It” button will be right above the photo.

      Does that help?
