The world’s emerging favorite in the category of photo sharing, Pinterest, went in for a revamp recently. Some features were added while others were fine-tuned for a better experience of users who make Pinterest what it is. The design and interface of the website is now simpler to use for newbies. Also, the page looks clutter-free now. The website has sent out some feelers to users so that they can write in with their feedback about what they think of Pinterest now. The lead product designer, Jason Wilson, clarified that the revamp has been done keeping in mind the fact that users don’t have to pick up new skills to use Pinterest.
An added feature on Pinterest now is an opportunity for ‘pinners’ to get up close and personal on photos shared by other users. The website feels, and rightly so, that with this features, ‘pinners’ will be able to develop newer hobbies and interests. You can also view ‘pins’ belonging to the same board. You need not move away from the web page that you are on to do that. Users will also be able to check out ‘pins’ shared from the same website. This feature is available under the head of ‘Pins from the Same Source’.
If you like the photos shared by a particular Pinterest user, you now have the option of checking out other photos belonging to the same user. This feature is called ‘People who pinned this also pinned’. You will find these words on the sides of the ‘pins’ you are checking on. This excellent feature will now be available on iOS and Android phones as well. This feature will allow users to open up their treasure-trove of photos on Pinterest because they will be encouraged by the fact that if one of their photos grab eyeballs, the others have a strong chance to do so.
Pinterest took considerable note of the fact that ‘pinners’ don’t like to lose their way while looking at photos. That is why a new feature will ensure that you land back where you begun from, without clogging up your way unnecessarily. So, no matter how deep into the website you go in to explore photos and ‘pins’, you know that you will find your way back without a hassle. To round it off, Pinterest has made the foundations more robust so that the website is now more reliable for millions of ‘pinners’ across the globe.
