Pinterest has been diligently working on improving its usefulness over the last several months. At the beginning of the year, they debuted a new site design. Today, Pinterest announced its made its pins more useful.
Pins will now include little icons indicating there is more information about product availability, recipe information, or details about movies. Pinterest added these features by working with popular websites to create better, more useful content. According to their blog post, Pinterest will also be updating information on your previous pins, too.
The updates aren’t just limited to the website. Pinterest also announced it was making the Pin It button available in mobile apps, so users could pin there as well. This is an especially good move considering more and more users are accessing content from their mobile devices, rather than traditional desk and laptops.
These changes are sure to increase the usability and popularity of Pinterest. The site has continuously grown over the years, and now is expanding into being a useful tool for businesses as well. While the list of participating sites is somewhat small, it is surely going to grow as more people learn about the new feature and begin using it.
