Pinterest Introduces Rich Pins
Today in a not so surprising move, Pinterest introduced “More Useful Pins” which is a nicety for “ways we can finally make money and start paying back these investors!” The new rich pins are only available from websites with meta tags added and can include information like pricing, availability, reviews and ingredients.
Right now, there are three types of rich pins:
- movies pins with content ratings, cast members, and more
- products pins with pricing, availability, and where to buy
- recipe pins that include cook time, ingredients, and servings
This is clearly a Pinterest move to close deals with major consumer brands in these categories. The upgraded pins are only available the new look. To get the new look, click the “Get it now” button on top of your home feed.
