Find and save great reads with new article pins

image

Lots of people use Pinterest to discover and collect great articles. In fact, more than 5 million articles are pinned every day.

Starting today, we’re rolling out a new look for article pins. Articles will now have more information — including the headline, author, story description and link — right on the pin. So, when you find articles about things you’re passionate about, such as science, travel, parenting or health, they’re easier to save and organize on Pinterest.

These new pins are similar to the updated recipe, movie and product pins we introduced in May. We’re always looking for ways to make pins more useful so that when you discover and pin something great, it’s easy to act on it, whether that’s cooking a dish, watching a movie, buying a new gadget or reading an article.

Pin now, read later

When you come across articles you may not have time to read, or just want to keep for later, you can save them to your own reading list board. For example, you may be reading a lot about healthy living, so you could save the most interesting articles to a healthy reading board.

The types of reading list boards you create and articles you save is up to you!
