Explore today’s top ideas

  • Share
  • There are over 75 billion ideas on Pinterest, and people around the world save millions more here every single day. With so many great hand-curated ideas making their way onto Pinterest, there could be some you'd really love if only you knew about them.

    That’s what Pinterest Explore is all about—helping you make sure you don’t miss the good stuff.

    Trending ideas, quick-play videos, expert faves and more!

    Each time you drop by Explore, you get a snapshot of what’s trending on Pinterest, from emerging cultural trends (like “Hygge,” Danish for a simple life lived well) to surprising new flavors (like toasted sweet potato by the slice).

    You’ll also find picks from top tastemakers, industry experts and even our own Pinterest employees, who crowdsource the best ideas using a combination of what Pinners are loving today and what’s happening in the world around us. And when we come across ideas we think you’d especially want to see, your Explore also includes a collection of your own personalized recommendations.

    Also keep an eye out for top ideas and videos from your favorite brands and publishers—Tastemade, HGTV, GQ, Refinery29, Harper’s Bazaar, National Geographic, BuzzFeed and Brit+Co, with even more coming soon. Videos play right where you are so you can instantly see how to bring each idea to life—whether it’s learning the trick to stuffing cheese inside onion rings or how to fold a shirt in 4 seconds.

    The topics you love most

    You can also explore ideas by topic—just swipe right for Food, Home, Style or anything else you’re into to see what’s trending. To see full selection of Pins for each topic, just scroll down past the collections and tap “See all Pins.”

    The first time you visit, the topics you start out with are inspired by how you’ve been using Pinterest up until now, but you can always customize which topics you see. Swipe right to the end of your topic list and tap the + to pick new topics, then drag them into whatever order makes the most sense to you.

    Come explore Explore today, tomorrow and every day after that on your phone (tap the magnifying-glass icon at the bottom of your screen) or on the web (click new Compass button next to the search bar, right where the old category button used to be). We hope you find surprising new ideas each time you stop by!

    (Note: It’s going to take about a week for everyone to get the new experience, so if you don’t have it yet, please check back in a day or so!)
