It seems like social media is always changing and Pinterest is no exception. Pinterest recently made some changes and added some new features. Although the changes are small, they make using Pinterest more user-friendly because it's easier than ever to search topics and to find people who share your interests. There's even a new way to follow too!
1. You've always been able to follow people as well as follow individual boards, but there's a new way to follow on Pinterest. Now you can follow by interests!
2. Here's how to find those interests. Type a search in the search bar or click the little search icon and choose any topic from the drop down window.
Then narrow the search by selecting one of the categories or "interests" at the top of the page.
If you want to follow that interest, click the follow button.
You can also see other people who are following that interest.
3. You can view who and what you are following by interest, boards, and pinners. Just click "following" on your main Pinterest page. Then select "interests" to view the interests you're following, select "pinners" to see the people you're following, or select "boards" to view which boards you're following. You can do this on other pinners' main pages to see who and what they're following too!
5. You can also find friends, invite friends, and get follow recommendations in the upper left corner of your home feed.
