Pinterest shares its New Site Design

Rate this post

After a massive change in the look of the news feed by Facebook, Pinterest also announced a new site design for its 48+ million users after a 3 month test period. Yesterday, the content sharing site, which allows users to “pin” photos, videos, articles, graphics and other objects to their own boards, announced some slight changes to the design of the site and some new discoverability features. Overall, the design changes are relatively subtle.

However, the change isn’t a drastic change and does not require the same adjustment as Facebook News Feed. The site still portrays the same big photos that are laid out in a grid, but along the top of the home screen comes a new navigation bar. Moreover, there is also a new button in the top left, just next to the search bar and gives you a complete list of categories including animals, art and design.

In addition to the above changes, the amount of space bordering pins has also been reduced that allow for larger images and a cleaner layout. Profile pages have likewise been condensed to show more pins in less space. Let’s take a look and compare the old news feed with the new one.

Beyond the cosmetic changes, Pinterest has also added a host of discovery features. When you take a look at the pinned image or the video, now you can find pins from the same board on the right hand side, which prevents you from leaving the page you are on to browse. Moreover, you can also explore pins from the same source, which allows you to see what ‘people who pinned this also pinned.’

Although, these features are only available for desktop at the present, but will very soon will also be rolled out to Pinterest’s iOS and Android apps; reported by Jason Wilson, Pinterest’s lead product designer.
