New Feature On Pinterest Gives Users More Privacy


Pinterest recently launched Secret Boards. Pinners will appreciate this new feature and it will encourage more personal users to join as well. This new feature is fantastic for businesses, especially those who are planners. If a company is planning to launch a new product or host a special event a Secret Board can be created in advance, along with content, images, and descriptions for each pin. Upon completion the board can be made public and shared with the user’s followers.

Unfortunately, users cannot turn existing boards into Secret Boards because other users may have already repinned from the board. Each pinner is only allowed three Secret Boards at this time. If additional Secret Board is need, the user will have to make one public.

To create a Secret Board on your computer, all you need to do is go to your profile on Pinterest, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Create a Secret Board. They can also be created by simply clicking  Add+ on the top right-hand side of Pinterest, select Create Board and click the Secret button switch on. Secret Boards can also be created on mobile devices under the Boards tab.
