A pearltree is like a folder that contains pearls. You can open a pearltree to explore the pearls it contains, close it, browse it and even move it into an other pearltree.
Here’s what it looks like when it’s open:
Just click on the small x to close it:
It’s very easy to create a new pearltree: one click on the “new pearltree” button and you have it!
But most of all, a pearltree is a curation. It’s a very useful way to give meanings to your pearls. And with Pearltrees it’s very easy:
- You can start by giving a specific title to your pearltree. You can do so when you create the pearltree and of course, you can change it any time just by clicking on it in the detail window.
The title is a great opportunity to give your visitors the key to understand your pearltree.
- Now you can chose where to put your pearls in the pearltree. By doing so you will give them a special meaning and will guide your visitors through your curation. You read a pearltree from left to right, and from top to down, so you have a lot of possibilities for organizing your pearltree: by topic, by chronologic order, by point of view… it’s your choice!
