We believe everyone’s Pinterest boards are a window into all the things that inspire them every day. We wanted to make Pinterest profiles as beautiful and informative about your interests as possible. Today, we’re starting to roll out a new version of profile and we wanted to share a few of the details.
The biggest change is next to your basic profile information: It’s a card called “Repins From”. As the name indicates, this card shows you 3 people you frequently repin from. It’s a great way to discover new people to follow.
Next, we reimagined Boards themselves. By pulling out the most recent pin and giving it center stage, boards now have a larger point of focus. Redesigning something as fundamental as the board was tricky. We tried more than 20 versions before arriving at the current design. The more we used this new layout as a team here in Palo Alto, the more we enjoyed it. We hope you feel the same way!
Centralizing profile navigation was also key. Even seasoned Pinners had trouble finding out who follows them and who they’re following. We decided to put all of the profile navigation in one bar so you always know where to look to find your profile’s core information. You can also rearrange your boards by hitting the button next to “Edit Profile.”
We also added a new view called Activity. When you’re browsing your friends’ profiles, it helps you see all the things they’ve been doing on Pinterest. It’s a great view to quickly see how much someone is pinning and commenting, who they decide to follow, or keep track of the things you’ve been doing yourself on your own profile!
Lastly, your profile image, description, and website are all at the top of the page, so people can get a great idea of who you are really quickly. This design also gives your pins and pinboards a lot more space to shine.
We think this new profile is a step forward in representing you and helping you discover interesting things and people. We always welcome and consider feedback. Like everything at Pinterest, our new profile is a work in progress that we will continue to improve.
