Social Media Mods: 2 Epic Updates to Pinterest & Instagram

Pinterest Secret Boards


Being a big social media junkie, I caught wind of two exciting changes last week and in case you hadn’t heard about them, I wanted to share them with you!

The first is that Pinterest now offers secret boards. One of my biggest complaints in the past with Pinterest is that everything we pinned was public, and while that’s great for sharing our inspirations, it wasn’t an ideal solution for client-focused projects, gathering inspiration for gift giving or pinning away a secret obsession!

Now, when you log into your account, scroll down to the bottom of your profile and you’ll have three secret boards waiting for you. The pins you place within these boards won’t show up anywhere else, ever.

The second is that Instagram now has profile pages that are accessible online. Being a phone app, in the past I relied on third-party services to access my Instagram snaps but now, just go to Instagram.com/yourusername and everything’s right there including your bio, profile photo and a quick overview of recent snaps right at the top.

If you’re on Pinterest and Instagram, let me know your user name in the comments! And feel free to follow me here and here.
