Pinterest Boards Upgraded with 3 New Features

Pinterest has announced that they are coming up with three new features for their boards. The introduction of these features will help users become more productive on the platform.

As of late, Pinterest came up with stats that Pinterest boards are seeing a surge, especially during Covid times. The company reported a 35% year on year growth on the newly created boards monthly.

Below are the categories that have seen tremendous growth in board creations:

  1. Gifts 
  2. Essential Goods
  3. Baby Products
  4. Home workout
  5. Home Improvement

The above queries have also seen a spike in searches and saved pins.

Pinterest has also shared the absolute percentage growth for boards created for some products, as mentioned below:

  1. 95% increase in women’s fashion
  2. 83% increase in essential everyday products
  3. 70% increase in family Christmas gifts
  4. 44% increase in beauty
  5. 36% increase in home decor

Seeing the sudden uptick in board creations for a few of the categories, Pinterest has come with new features for boards allowing them to get more out of their curated boards.

New Features Include:

 1. Notes to Self

You can add notes to your already saved pins by adding private notes to them. The addition of private pins can be pretty useful when you revisit the pin and forget about why you saved the pin.

2. New Board ToolBar

A New board toolbar has been added, making it easier for users to sort through the collection of pins. A new easy to navigate section is also present on the top of the screen showing the actions that can be performed on that particular board. This feature has become a necessity as active boards nowadays easily contain an average of 150 pins in them.
