Pinterest introduces a new way to share boards

With over 518 million monthly active users, Pinterest is the go-to place for inspiration. The platform is now making it easier for users to share their inspiration with others.

Whatever their aesthetic, the new board-sharing feature allows users to easily share their Pinterest boards to other social platforms. This new feature streamlines the process of sharing Pinned content and gives users the ability to share a link to explore their entire Pinterest board.

The Director of Consumer Product Marketing at Pinterest, Rachel Hardy, said the following…

“Gen Z makes up over 40% of our global monthly users on Pinterest and are our most engaged generation, with a significant increase in the number of boards created by Gen Z Pinners compared to last year. We are enhancing the board features based on user feedback and, this year, board sharing is one of our critical investments as users value the ability to share their creative processes on different platforms and find inspiration from others.”

For users like Gen Z, Pinterest isn’t just a platform, it’s a space where they can express themselves without external pressures.

For the launch of board sharing, Pinterest has partnered with Avril Lavine and Tierra Whack to showcase their never-before-seen private boards. This new feature is an opportunity for users to foster genuine engagement among communities and provide a window into the inspiration behind creative projects.

Pinterest to Collaborate with Google – February 2024

Last year Pinterest chose Amazon as their first third-party ad partner. This year, looking to continue driving the platform’s revenue, they’ve just announced that Google Ads will become their second third-party ad collaboration

What does this mean? PPC marketers will be able to serve ads on Pinterest through Google’s Ads Manager, however what this will look like is unclear. We know that if a pinner clicks on one of these ads they will be directed straight to the advertiser’s website to complete the desired action.

It seems that brands won’t have to worry about directly competing against themselves through their PPC and paid social advertising as the partnership with Google looks to help Pinterest monetise in markets they are currently not able to do so. This isn’t rolled out to everyone and from the people that have been able to use this feature they have seen positive results.
