7 billion Pins with places (and counting!)

  • Share
  • Since we first launched place Pins, millions of travel-minded Pinners have added place info to their Pins.
     
    Starting today, we're making it even easier to see your favorite spots on a map: Now location info will be added automatically to Pins. That means almost 7 billion Pins will have helpful details, like phone numbers, addresses and store hours. We’ve also built in some handy new extras.
     
    Now each Pin includes a preview of where it lives on the map. Tap to get all the details, including other Pins from that spot and tips from people who’ve been there. If you need to get in touch, just tap to make a call or get directions from Google Maps or Apple Maps. 
     
    You can even discover nearby places that you might want to visit just by exploring the map. So say you’re planning a brunch outing. Now your Pin can help you find the perfect urban hike to walk off those pancakes afterwards. 
     
    To give you a glimpse of all the places you can go, we’ve collected the top 20 places people have saved to Pinterest. We hope these inspire you to plan your own trip on Pinterest. 
     
    This week, these goodies will be available on iPhone and iPad. Look out for them on Android and the web in the future. 
     
    Happy trails!
