We love when people get in touch to tell us what’s working on Pinterest, and what we could do better. Today, we’re making a few changes based on all the helpful feedback we’ve heard.
Pinterest messaging made easy
Millions of people around the world come to Pinterest to discover ideas to try, and one of the best tools for helping them bring those ideas to life is video.
Video helps people visualize how to make ideas happen. In fact, people have told us that when they come across a how-to video on Pinterest, they’re more than twice as likely to give it a try (versus videos they find on other sites). Whether it’s a new workout move or a recipe for bacon potato-chip chocolate cookies, watching someone else do it first can be a big help.
Stylish gender-neutral nurseries
The days of pastel pink and powder blue baby rooms are behind us. With a 53% spike in gender neutral nursery ideas on Pinterest, parents-to-be are decorating with a quieter palette of creams, grays and browns suitable for a boy or a girl. And neutral doesn’t mean boring. Popular ideas include modern geometric patterns and adventure themes with maps, teepees and canoes.

Search engines have always been great for answering questions that have one simple answer (“Who played Rey in The Force Awakens?”). But when you’re looking for something with more than one possible answer (“what should we make for dinner?”), they aren’t nearly as helpful.
