Pinterest Launches Related Pins

Posted Oct 30, 2013

Pinterest has launched a new service called Related Pins.  Let’s say that you enjoy pinning creative nail art photos.  Pinterest may recommend you tutorials on how to colorfully paint your nails.

This is just another simple way that Pinterest is enhancing discovery on the website.  The Related Pins have been added to the feeds of a few Pinterest users already before a bigger roll-out starts soon.

“If you?ve been collecting recipes for your big holiday feast, we might show you a related Pin for fool-proof pie crust, or the perfect double-stuffed sweet potato,” said Pinterest in a blog post.  Users can control what suggestions they see by thumbing up or thumbing down.  A thumbs down removes the recommendation from the feed.
