A Category for Every Pinboard

Pinterest graphic

We’ve just added a new feature to Pinterest: pinboard categories. Lots of people said they didn’t want to tag every pin on a board with a general topic such as food, art, or books. That’s where categories come in.To help categorize all the pinboards, we’re letting anyone suggest a category for any pinboard. If you suggest a category, the pinboard owner will receive an email asking if they’d like to keep the category or change it. As categories spread, it will become easier and easier to discover new pins you’re interested in.Even though pinboard categories aren’t the flashiest feature, it’s something I’m really excited about. To start adding categories, visit your profile page and click the edit button next to any of your pinboards.
