📌 Pinterest Updating Pin Format-
Key change is your client’s Pin image will get more screen real estate! The ‘Save’ and ‘Send’ buttons, as well as the options menu, shift to below the Pin image from the top bar in current format.
“When you scroll down … you can see that each section is now more specifically separated, with rounded edges defining each part. That, again, better highlights what you can do with each Pin, what you can learn about each, and then, what other Pins the platform thinks you might be interested in.” – Andrew Hutchinson, writing for Social Media Today
