Pins are visual bookmarks. Each Pin you see on Pinterest links back to the site it came from, so you can learn more—like how to make it or where to buy it.
These are products that you can buy right on Pinterest, without ever leaving the app.
Picked For You Pins
Pinterest will sometimes recommend Pins for you based on the boards you’ve created, the Pins you save or click on, and other stuff you do on Pinterest.
Businesses can pay to have these Pins show up where you’d be more likely to notice them. The Promoted Pins you see are based on your interests and things you do on Pinterest.
Boards are where you save your Pins. Think of them as folders. You can make boards for anything and everything—save recipes to your Breakfast Recipes board, saved fashion ideas to your Workwear Fashion board and more.
Group boards are great for planning projects, brainstorming party ideas or simply sharing ideas with a group. All you have to do is add someone as a collaborator and you’re ready to start saving Pins together.
Only you (and anyone you invite) can see secret boards. When you save a Pin to a secret board, it won’t show up anywhere else on Pinterest.
A toolbar within Pinterest where you can search for Pins or content using keywords or hashtags.
When you first log in to Pinterest, you’ll see your home feed—it’s a collection of Pins from the people, boards and topics you follow, as well as a few Promoted Pins and Pins Pinterest has picked for you. Plus, Pins in relation to a subject you might have recently searched for.
If you start seeing Pins that are of no interest to you, you can changes your preferences. You can also delete these Pins from your feed. See my tutorial on How To Tune Your Home Feed.
