Pinterest is one of the most loved applications of 2020, which justifies how the company has thrived drastically this year and gained 75 million users in a single year. The company now has a total of more than 300 million active users who love to browse through the inspiring Pins daily. The platform provides a massive range of Pins from uncountable categories, which perfectly matches the users' thoughts.
Pinners can create their custom boards on the application and save their favorite Pin. in it. These boards help the users to categorize their saved pins so that they can be found easily whenever they want to navigate through a particular board. The company has rolled out a set of board-specific tools that will provide a convenient way to track and find various ideas and inspirations that you look out for on the platform.
Pinterest has introduced a 'Notes to Self' feature that enables the users to add private notes to any pin they want to save. People save pins but forget the idea they got from them; hence, private notes to the pins will remind you of the first thing you thought about the pin or planned to do something similar.
Another super cool feature includes the 'Board Toolbar' that provides the Pinners with three options, which basically are kind of shortcuts for them. The options include;
- More ideas – Allows the users to find Pins similar to those they have saved on the board.
- Organize – It is a great option that helps users rearrange the Pins in their board according to their preferences.
- To-Dos – Perfect way to keep your notes or reminders regarding a specific board so that you don't miss what you planned earlier.
According to the company, the board toolbar will be useful in assisting the users for maximized search as, on average, a board contains more than 150 Pins.
Lastly, Pinterest is currently working on a feature through which the users will be able to mark their Pins as 'favorite,' which they want to keep highlighted. This feature will surely be a major update as searching through all those Pins saved in different boards gets frustrating; hence, marking your top Pin as favorites will be a great way to see them directly.
