Pinterest has updated its feed to now show recent pins from the people and boards you follow. To make it easier to see these pins, the feed will be shown in chronological order.

The latest feed change is based on observation by Pinterest which showed that pins it placed according to algorithm saw higher engagement than pins from people that users chose to follow. What that means is that its main feed has developed into algorithm that is centered around what users are interested in as well as what they have been pinning about.

Nothing much has changed really because the feed stays the same, but just that users will now get to see latest pins from people and boards they have chosen to follow. According to The Verge, Pinterest will give influencers and brands a way to engage more with people on the network. The update will show up as a primary option beside the original feed.

The new update is called “Following,” and has started rolling out to users on iOS and Android platforms.

A few months ago, Pinterest added a feature that enables you to sort or arrange your event and party ideas, and keep things tidy. Board sections as Pinterest describes it, gives you a way to cut your ideas into smaller parts—and everything stays on the same board. It really doesn’t matter what the event is; you can have them all sliced up into smaller unites all within your board.

It saves the user a lot of time—and lets you go straight and get things done in a jiffy because you know exactly where to go. Pinterest is a website that is well known for the way it organizes things—and this new feature will further endear it to the heart of every user out there. Board sections according to Pinterest, is one of the most requested features ever in the history of the company.

Sometimes last year, Pinterest launched a feature lets you pinch a photo to zoom in and out on various Pins. Instagram, among several other online services have almost similar features—and will continue the company’s goal of keeping its service competitive.

The plan here is to make its platform one of the most attractive for high-quality photos and videos with emphasis on products. It has increasingly developed into a platform where people can expect to see and experience services similar to what other platforms are currently offering.

Recently; December to be precise, Pinterest launched a bot and chat extension that will display its full pin images in Facebook Messenger. That means you will start seeing more pins in the messaging app—and that will mark the start of a new partnership between the two social networking behemoths.

Close to 1 million pins are shared on Messenger every week, and the bots and extension will further boost the presence of Pinterest on the messaging app.
