Of all the social networks that one might have expected to flop, Pinterest
is probably in that list. But, what is lacks in convention it makes up for in uniqueness, and obviously the user base is just exploding. Now, those who use the service will find it to be even more useful. The company has today launched "more useful pins," and it's also making it easier
to pin regardless of where you are.
The company has aligned itself with various websites in order to institute product pins, recipe pins and movie pins. These were already amongst the most popular items pinned, and now it seems that the company is both making your life easier while sliding into efforts to make money. From your feed, you can tell when a pin has more information by the icon that appears below the picture, and it's also updating your old pins as well.
Moreover, the Pin It button is now available across mobile apps, giving you even more chances to add to your feed.
