It’s always for the Pinners that Pinterest comes up with something exciting like their Hashtags and now the newly revealed ‘Sections’ which will help in organizing Pin presentation in a better way.
Pinterest has added a new way to categorize their Pinterest boards with sections and sub-headings that are to be available within each. The general Pinterest board used to look like this
But now it has got more organised with a separation for each and every section for all the all the pins marked by the user. The new board looks like this:
What did Pinterest have to say?
“On Pinterest, the more ideas you find and save to your boards, the more ideas you have to try in real life. But if you’ve saved hundreds of ideas to a single board, it can be hard to find what you’re looking for. That’s why we’re launching board sections. Now you can save all your favourite ideas to a single board, organize them into sections and easily find them when you’re ready to try them.”
What is the use of such an option?
Since the users keep on adding ideas to the board, the categories and sub-categories would help them in sorting out their choice easily. Creating a section is no feat. It could be created by going to that board and tap on the “Add Section”.
