I’m excited that after my last blog called “Pinterest – What is it and should your business be using it?“, Pinterest have made an exciting change. Now, if you log-in and scroll to the bottom of the page, you have the ability to create private Pinterest boards! This was one of my points that I made from my initial blog, saying that this is a key feature that is missing, but now, only a few months later, it’s available!
This is a great new feature and is perfect for pinning items that you don’t want other people to see. You might want to pin gift ideas, or wedding inspiration for example, which you want to keep a secret! For businesses, this is a great feature to use. You can set up all your pins on a private board and then switch to ‘public’, so your boards never get seen only half complete. Also, if you’re adding a number of pins all at once, you won’t annoy your followers!
It’s a shame that you can only have a maximum of 3 private boards at any time, but, what ever you use it for, it’s still a great new development! Give it a go! You can find out more about private boards here.
Have you tried these private boards out yet? What do you think? Leave a comment below!
