Scaling Community: The Pinterest Story

We're totally full on the Meetup.com group and we're limited to 100 people. If you do want to reserve a seat to ensure you're able to come and you're currently on the waitlist, you can RSVP via Eventbrite. Because demand has been really high this time around, we just ask that you contribute $10 so we can continue to bring you better and better events.


Enid Hwang, who built the Pinterest community from the ground-up, will be sharing the story of Pinterest's evolution from a few passionate advocates to the enormous network and community that it is today. We couldn't be more excited to hear from one of our community heroes about one of our favorite community-building tools. 

Pinterest will be opening up their office to our group and sponsoring food + drinks. And that's because they rock.

***We are limited to 100 attendees, so please make every effort to make it if you RSVP.

Event Details:

6:30-7:00 Mingle and have some snacks and drinks
7:00-8:00 Enid's presentation
8:00-9:00 Mingle and network

      Hey Leslie, I'd be happy to talk with you about it. I still apply the things Enid talked about in my work on a daily basis.

    Thank you to everyone who came out last night! I loved seeing some new faces - some who were not even in community but who were convinced of its power by Enid's presentation! - and seeing so many friends again. We are sorry for all the confusion about RSVPing. We did have a full house. Unfortunately, Meetup is not a perfect product and didn't automatically move people from the waitlist to the "YES" list. Thus, our move to sfcmgr.com! We don't want technical difficulties again. So join us there. :-)

    If you missed us, Dan from Techendo (our sponsor) filmed the whole thing and we'll have it up for you in a few weeks!

    Fantastic chat. It was nice meeting some new CM's today. I'm still pretty new to the community and industry. Hope to see more of you around!

    Thank you Carrie and Lucy for hosting the event, and thanks Enid for taking the time to present! The content was really great and the meetup was a lot of fun. Looking forward to the next one! :)

    Hi team, we got started and Pinterest closed off entrances so as not to interrupt Enid. We're getting this on film though!

    I'm currently on the waitlist. However, I know the folks that run Viglink, and Lucy Bartlet. :D

      Not in SF right now, but if there was a spot left open, I'd come. :) But Carrie has implied that the spot isn't 'available.' So to speak, so I decided to back off. Looking forward to the next "big" event.

      @Lucy and @Carrie, sorry for the last minute (late) cancellation, had something come up and I won't be able to make it. Really wanted to join y'all. See you at the next event.

    FYI, Entrance is 580 7th, not 572.

    I'm not sure if i paid yet, can you help?

    March 23, 2014

    • Leticia S.

      boo.. I thought i did it soon enough to get in...

      March 24, 2014

    • Leticia S.

      well, I just don't want to be a no-show if I'm on the list... when I registered there was not an indication of eventbrite that i recall..

      March 24, 2014

  • Erin

    Is there bike parking inside the building or nearby?

    March 24, 2014

  • Heidi A.

    I think there's some confusion over Meetup vs. Eventbrite RSVPs. I RSVP'ed early for myself and a +1 on here, and we're both coming. I didn't RSVP via Eventbrite tho....so will I be on the list or not?

    March 24, 2014

    • Lucy B.

      We have an eventbrite per event as a way to let none sfcmgr members join sessions they are particularly interested in. You are both SFCMGR and were in the first 100 to register (i think) in which case you are golden

    • Heidi A.

      Great, thanks!

      March 24, 2014

  • Paul T.

    Hi Carrie, it says 3 people dropped out (97) but I am having a hard time RSVP'ing. Tried buying tickets this morning also. Anyway you could add 2? Will be punctual and network'ie! ;)

    March 24, 2014

    • Lucy B.

      Apologies, but we remain full. You mentioned only one in your email. We don't have space for two at the moment. So sorry. We will keep you updated.

      March 24, 2014

  • Emily

    Hey Carrie- I RSVPed on the Meetup group but happy to contribute to support future events. Will I be able to do it at the event tonight?

    1 · March 24, 2014

    • Lucy B.

      SFCMGR is free, but we opened it up for non members to join with a donation. So dont worry

  • Kesavan Kanchi K.

    Hi, I just reached SF from India and came across this event. I am very interested in attending this event, if there are any open spots. Kindly let me know. Thanks

    March 24, 2014

    • Lucy B.

      We will let you know. Unfortunately we remain full.

      March 24, 2014

  • Carrie J.

    Thanks for the great questions, everyone. We are relaying them to Enid tomorrow, so if you think of any others, let us know!

    Were the people who were part of the community in the very early days the same kind of people in the community when it started growing rapidly?

    2 · March 7, 2014

  • nima d.

    How to grow from zero to huge in super fast time? What works, what failed, what lessons were learned? What would she do differently if she had another chance. What was in Pinterest that so resonated with its early adopters? And was it obvious, by design, or by accident? If the latter how did they find it and how did they refine it to accelerate growth. We know that Pinterest struggled for a while until it really caught on. I want to know how it found its way back back then.

    Thanks!

      Nima - love this thanks for posting

    I'd be interested in learning about how Pinterest scaled up handling support and abuse/spam as it grew. It's also always fun to hear about interesting mistakes that people have learned from.

  • Andre N.

    Looking forward to hearing how Enid leveraged her network of acquaintances to build Pinterest

    February 25, 2014

    • Carrie J.

      I'm not sure if that's how she did it, but let's find out. :)

      3 · February 25, 2014

  • Carrie J.

    Hi friends! Please let us know what you'd like to learn from Enid and Pinterest. She'd like your feedback so she can really tailor this talk to your interests.
