Pinterest has installed a new feature called “News” to replace the old activity feed. This tool is displayed at the right hand side before the followers and following section. This displays the boards where your recent pins have been repinned by other pinners.
Pinterest explains this tool in a blog post introducing the “News” tool is meant for ease of use content discovery. Pinterest writes “to make relevant and interesting content easier to find we are introducing News. Rather than show text updates about your pins that other people repinned, this renovated News section will now show you the boards to which your pins were repinned. We think this will help pinners like you find more relevant boards and pins more easily!”
On January 16. 2013, Pinterest began rolling out this new feature to some users. Do you have the News tool? If not it should be coming your way soon as the company’s blog states “we’ll be rolling out this feature over the next few weeks. If you don’t see it yet, please be patient! Our team is working hard to get it to you as quickly as possible.“
