Job Description

Your job will be to browse Pinterest.com specifically the "travel" and "popular" sections and click on random Pinterest users, then find their email addresses and facebook usernames.

I will share a google doc with you which looks like this: http://screencast.com/t/GYbk2qAaxYDU and you will fill the doc with user names, their Pinterest url, facebook url (click small facebook icon on their pinterest profile), and you will find their email address by looking on their blog or copy/pasting it from the "description" field on their Pinterest profile if it's there. Example for finding email address off their blog:

Click on the link to their blog:

http://screencast.com/t/BznMlffEiFN5

And then look on their blog to find their email address. You can search the page (control + find) for "email" or "contact" to extract their email address off their blog. For example:

http://screencast.com/t/35YIgyxVljI

Then you enter their email, for example "kidsstuffworld@gmail.com"; in the google doc.

Sometimes in their Pinterest profile description users list their email as well - if this is the case then it's easy!

The way you can browse random Pinterest users: click on different categories like this: http://screencast.com/t/JZ5dLF46do

We're most concerned with "travel" and second highest priority "popular":
http://pinterest.com/all/?category=travel
http://pinterest.com/popular/

Click on random Pinterest users in the "travel" category and enter their info in the google doc.

Lastly, for the "facebook email" column copy/paste the facebook username and then write "@facebook.com"; next to it? For example if you see this facebook profile: http://screencast.com/t/6nV2pX1JEPQ2

Type in the google doc: leita.huffmanlaird@facebook.com instead of the facebook

To apply for this job, you must be confident you can find Pinterest users' email addresses by looking on their blogs. You should be good at thinking independently and finding Pinterest users' email addresses without a lot of guidance. Let me know if you can do it and I'll share the google doc with you and start the job!
