Hey everybody! We’ve made a couple improvements to how search works, so now it’s even easier for you to find the creative ideas and people you’re looking for.
Streamlined search suggestions
Before when you did a search, your results were buried behind different filters for Pins, Pinners and boards. Now you see all the closest matching options the second you start typing.
A little Pin can turn into something big. To prove it, a few folks on our team grabbed their hammers, built a collection of Pins and want to share them with you—in real life.

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.
