Last year, we started experimenting with Promoted Pins on Pinterest. Since then, a growing group of businesses in the U.S. have been paying to give their Pins more visibility in search results and category feeds. Now, we’re testing ads in different places, including the home feed, for U.S. Pinners.
Happy (almost) new year, everyone! We hope your holidays have been merry and bright, and that you’re fully recovered from all the holiday cheering.
Lots of Pinners have told us they’d like a way to move groups of Pins to new or different boards. So starting today, we’re making it happen!
Say you have a recipe board that’s gotten a little unwieldy, and you want to give your dessert Pins a board of their own. Now you can move them all at once:
1. Go to any of your boards on the web
2. Click Move Pins
3. Select up to 50 Pins to move
4. Pick a new board for them
There are all kinds of recaps and best-ofs this time of year, but Pinterest is all about getting creative and planning ahead. While we love a good 2014 rehash as much as anyone, it’s even more fun to start hatching plans for 2015.
To jump-start our planning, we came up with 100 Pin predictions for the year ahead. We looked at trending Pins in popular categories, Pins from our most influential Pinners and even a few hand-picked by Pinterest employees. Here are ten teasers:

3. Reduced start up time helps you get Pinning faster than ever
Handlebar or horseshoe—it all depends on your personal moustache mojo. All month, we’re celebrating the ‘stache to support the Movember Foundation and men’s health, and meanwhile finding a whole lot of creative upper lipholstery on Pinterest.
What’s with the whiskers? Pinployee Derrick Diaz was hoping you’d ask…
Good news: The iOS app has a sleek new look! We de-cluttered and simplified navigation so it’s easier to get around the app. The new, cleaner design also lets you focus more on your Pins. Next time you see a product, place or article Pin, take a look close up—the Pin’s info and image have much more room on the screen to shine.
Remember the mom and dad-crafted Halloween costumes from back in the day? Even if they didn’t always turn out quite like they were supposed to (is that a monster or a muppet?), they were always masks-off the most memorable. We miss those days, so this year we’re rolling up our sleeves, grabbing the glue gun and the duct tape, and tackling DIY costumes that are as fun to make as they are to wear.
