Did you log into Pinterest today and see this message? First Pinterest update that you will now see is a very large search bar at the top of your Pinterest Desktop Account.  The search option is such a powerful tool on Pinterest. They are now highlighting it just for you!

Explore Interest option on Pinterest new location

Explore Interest Option has Relocated

The next update is that your explore interest option has moved to the right hand side of the layout.  Do we tend to click more on the right?  My guess is yes and that’s why it relocated over there.  Take advantage of this newly released feature to allow them to help your research get narrowed down more quickly with key words they’ve prescreened for you.

Pin It Buttons and Help Options on Pinterest

Add a Pin Option has Moved

The add a pin option  has now change down to the bottom of your right hand side.  Don’t miss it it’s a little harder to see.  My thoughts are since there are so many other ways to add a pin to pinterest users aren’t using this option as much so why give it prime real estate at the top right.  Have a question... it’s located on the bottom right hand side as well.

Click on the P to find your Home Feed  on Pinterest

Home Feed Option with One Click

One additional update is the option to click back to my home feed, click on the friendly P!  With more and more search capabilities it’s nice to know you can quickly go back to your home feed that you’ve already pre-selected by who you are following.

How to Manage your account setting on Pinterest

Account Information Icon Has Moved

The last update is for managing your own account, somehow Pinterest missed telling us they moved that icon. Clicking on your name now brings you back to your own profile only. Now you no longer click on your own user name but on the gear located on your profile section.  Once you open that up you will see how to logout, change your profile or for Business Account holds you will also see your business analytics and make a widget.
