Where’s That Pin Again? Search Your Pins!

image

We’re happy to announce you can now search for your own pins. This makes it easier to rediscover stuff you’ve pinned.

Here’s how it works:

When you type a word into the search bar — like San Francisco, beaches or BBQ — you can filter results by clicking “Just my pins”. We’ll show you everything you’ve pinned with that keyword in the pin description. Be sure to add words in your descriptions that will help you find that pin again.

For example, if you’re getting ready to cook dinner, you can now easily find that recipe you’ve been meaning to make. Or you may have free time for weekend projects and want to quickly find your “DIY” pins.

We’re rolling this out on web now, and we’ll bring it to mobile soon.

We hope you enjoy searching across all your boards and finding hidden treasures along the way.
