Slowly but surely Pinterest is rolling out their new look to users. The Social Solutions Collective got the new look just this week and I am excited to give you a quick tour of the new interface.
There are two major changes and a few minor ones. Note: If you get offered the new look, Pinterest has made it easy for you to get used to it. You can still switch back to the old look whenever you choose. Some of the features of the old look are not yet available on the new interface, therefore they let you switch back and forth with the switch of one button.
Two Major Changes
When you get the new look, you’ll immediately notice two major changes: larger pins & a new navigation system. Let’s explore both.
Besides being slightly, but noticeably larger, when you click on a pin you can now immediately see the following information about that pin:
All the other pins on that same board:
Other pins pinned from the same source:
A ‘Visit Website’ button to go directly to the website the pin came from:
All repins for that selected pin and the boards they were repinned to:
The navigation menu for categories is now on the left side of your screen, not in the middle and lets you search very easily.
On the right side of your screen you can still access your boards, pins and your account settings.
I personally like the new look and have enjoyed playing with it this week. I think getting more information about each pin before repinning is a great new feature. Being able to see repins and other pins from the website is a great way to add to the credibility of the source.
What do you think of the new Pinterest look? Do you have the new look yet? I’d love to know your thoughts.
