Pinterest's Subtle Changes for the Better

Pinterest has a new design. You’ll have to look closely, but we promise it’s different. Very, very slightly different.

If you’re one of the people who uses Pinterest like a crack addict, then you’ll likely notice the changes more easily than the rest of us. For the more casual user, here’s what is different (from Pinterest’s blog):
  • Pins from the same board: You can explore the entire board without leaving the page you’re on.
  • Pins from the same source: Here you’ll find other things pinned from the same website.
  • People who pinned this also pinned: This is literally what it says it is.
These features, as well as additional aesthetics and navigation changes, are meant to make Pinterest easier and more pleasant to use overall.

Many people found themselves  frustrated by the befuddling telescoping navigation within Pinterest because it was damn near impossible to get back to your starting point after browsing through pins. If you fall into this category, you will be very happy with the new changes, as Pinterest promises you won’t lose your place while browsing.

Subtle or not, the redesign has received a lot of positive feedback from those using it so far. If you haven’t yet received an email from Pinterest inviting you to the new design, never fear — one should be coming your way very soon.
