Good morning and blissful Wednesday, everybody! Here’s a factor that falls underneath Immediately In Very Good Issues: Pinterest goes to, lastly, lastly, allow you to transfer pins round in your boards.
This appears actually small and trivial however, actually, this is without doubt one of the greatest high quality of life enhancements to the service that I’ve seen (and possibly many others) in lots of months now. Pinterest has been engaged on issues like like bettering their picture recognition, investing closely in visible search, elevating some huge cash and usually simply attempting to get huge, however now as a very nice Valentine’s Day shock Pinterest is letting you do a factor that ought to really feel completely pure however positively didn’t exist but for some cause.
The change right this moment is a part of quite a few small quality-of-life enhancements for Pinterest customers, particularly ones whose tastes will change over time. For instance, in case you used a Pinterest board to get married and are, effectively, married, then you definitely don’t really want that board any extra aside from possibly for nostalgia’s sake. As you may think about, these are most likely requests which are in excessive demand — and Pinterest mentioned this themselves — however are probably sitting on the queue whereas a bunch of different high-priority stuff will get rolled out (like upgrades to Lens and issues alongside these strains).
Right here’s a fast rundown of the modifications taking place right this moment:
- Now you can archive boards. That is filed underneath Very Good Issues. At the very least, in my case, except for my Board of Very Wishful Considering in relation to dwelling design, a number of these boards aren’t actually essential any extra. There are a number of the explanation why this might assist loads as Pinterest is an effective hub for planning out huge life occasions like weddings or events.
- Now you can rearrange pins(!!!!). Once more, self-explanatory, particularly if you’re somebody who may be very choosy about how issues are ordered.

Once more, these appear small, however actually, these small enhancements add up loads over time. And generally these little innocuous modifications could require under-the-hood tooling (and sure it certainly did require it) to determine. Typically instances little boring tweaks are those that may trigger a dramatic shift in general person happiness — and so they’re those which are usually in demand. As somebody who’s wildly obsessive about how issues look, even on a convoluted display of stuff that has solely a unfastened affiliation with regardless of the board is named. Individuals like customization — one among our staffers (not naming names) even orders his display by the colour of the app — and little issues like this are essential.
And that’s additionally fairly essential for the corporate because it seems to be to proceed to develop and retain these customers, who little annoyances may very well drive away a few of your greatest customers. These most likely don’t rank very far up on the checklist of very annoying issues, however they appear like sufficient to assist hold customers sticking round just a little bit longer and possibly come again just a little extra usually.
