Search engines come in handy to answer specific questions, ranging from general knowledge issues such as the weather in San Francisco to the capital of Bolivia. Pinterest, however, intends to help you out by answering questions that will have more than just a single “correct” answer. For instance, where would your next vacation be, or what are you going to have for dinner tonight? Such open-ended questions might require you to see the various options available before you are able to settle on the right answer. In order to assist you in hunting down the best ideas, here is Guided Search for Pinterest.

Guided Search has been specially made for exploring, and it does not matter whether you are a choleric who already knows what you want exactly, or whether you are just browsing around and are on the lookout for something more specific, giving the classic answer of “I know it when I see it”.

With over 750 million boards alongside 30 billion Pins hand-picked by travelers, foodies, and other Pinners, who knows? The right idea could very well be a mere few taps away. Each time you perform a search, descriptive guides will let you go through all the other collective ideas from different Pinners, where you can then scroll through the guides and check out any of the answers that look interesting.

Available in English on mobile at first, Guided Search will eventually makes its way to the web and everywhere else. Android and iOS users will get first dibs right now though. [Press Release]
