Last month Pinterest rolled out a new look for all of its users. This new look was first tested by a select group of pinners in January, while it was still under development. The focus was on new discovery features which were aimed at making it easier for pinners to discover things of interest that they didn’t previously know about. However the new look wasn’t appreciated by majority of users, which is why Pinterest has brought back many of the old features it had removed in the March redesign. These features include @ mentions and “via” links.
They’ve also improved notifications, which are Facebook-esque and are located in the upper right corner. Pinterest now also has predictive search functionality. This latest design update is being gradually rolled out for all Pinterest users, however if you’ve not gotten it yet, simply click on the “Get it now” button which sits at the top of the home feed. What do you think of this design update? Were you fairly satisfied with the March update or do you think that the user experience is substantially better after this update?
