Just a quick post this morning, I was hearing on the rumour mill yesterday that Pinterest would be giving itself a bit of a mini makeover, and have seen this morning from the official Pinterest blog that infact this would be happening.
There has been no official comment from the company regarding the “sponsored pin” rumour that I also was hearing yesterday, so can’t comment on that, other than, IF it does happen I’m sure we will all know in plenty of time.
During the next few weeks Pinterest will be Beta testing the improved platform with a small group of users (and yes I have already submitted my interest in being one of those!)
Improvements and updates have been based on user feedback, which Pinterest actively request and support from their users, some of the changes we can expect to see are as follows:
Improved site navigation by the looks of it, your experience will be faster and much more comprehensive than the current platform.
They’ve made pins BIGGER and increased the information associated with any pin – which will make searching for things EVEN easier than before. For example, on each pin, you’ll see pins from the same board, other boards this pin was pinned to, and a whole slew of related pins.
Their work behind the scenes on the platform too has been improved, which is believed to have made the site a whole lot faster too.
If you want to be considered for the Beta Testing you can register your interest here and if you have any bright ideas or suggestions for improving the platform then as mentioned above you can send these direct to the developers by visiting the site
Seeing as Pinterest is becoming a personal guilty pleasure of mine, I am excited to see the facelift and plan on making much more use of the site in 2013 to help skyrocket my business!
Have a great day!
