How To Make A Pinterest Secret Board
Greetings from Polar's E-Connections Team
July signals the middle of summer. So by now, you’re probably enjoying a comfortable routine of your favorite summer activities. There’s always room for something new, however. For fresh ideas to try this month, take a peek at the Pinterest and Sites of the Month sections below. You’ll find inspiration for July meals, celebrations, vacations, and more.
Also in this issue, we share a warning about the practice called “Like Farming” used by spammers on Facebook. Your innocent “Like” could end up being used for less than honorable purposes, so be selective about what you “Like” on Facebook from now on and spread the word with family and friends.
Keep exploring this issue to check out the first website, watch castles made from humans and a magician made from wood, and learn to create a Pinterest secret board for "hush, hush" project planning.
The goal of each of our eNewsletters is to keep our subscribers informed regarding their Internet connection and to improve their Internet experience. We think you'll find this information interesting.

When scrolling through your Facebook News Feed, chances are you've seen pull-at-the-heartstrings photos with captions such as "Please help! If this 18-month-old girl gets 10,000 'Likes,' her heart transplant is free."
Without a second thought, you may "Like" the post as a quick and easy way to show you care. But unfortunately, doing so will only benefit spammers and accomplish nothing good, since the post is probably a fake and the photo stolen. What's going on here? It's called "Like Farming" and it works like this:

Question: I heard somebody mention that the World Wide Web is now 20 years old. I'm curious — what did the first website look like?
Answer: It certainly wasn't much to look at, especially compared with the websites of today. Here's a brief history: On April 30, 1993, a team at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) first made the technology underlying the World Wide Web available, royalty-free, to anyone who wanted to use it.
Their initial website was very basic — just a summary of the product including the development history, instructions for creating your own pages, and technical information about the World Wide Web. But this text-only website laid the groundwork for the estimated 630 million websites that followed in the subsequent 20 years.
Most of the time, you're probably happy to share the great ideas you've pinned on Pinterest. But there are certain situations — such as surprise party planning or gift buying — when you might want to keep things under wraps. That's the time to create a Pinterest secret board.
When you add pins to secret boards, they won't show up anywhere. This means they won't appear in the categories, search results, your home feed, or your followers' feeds. Pinterest won't even alert another pinner if you repin their content.
There are two ways to make a Pinterest secret board. Simply log in to your account and follow one of the procedures below:
