New Pinterest Feature: Send Pins to Friends

Pinterest is making the solitary act of sticking images on a virtual inspiration board a little more social with the release of a new feature for sending images to friends.

Now if you see something on Pinterest that you know that one of your friends will like, you can tap the “send” button to share it.

You can send the pins to other Pinterest users, Facebook friends, or email contacts with a personal note. They’ll be able to see them in their Pinterest notifications or in their email inboxes, the company said. If they reply or like the pins, you’ll get a notification as well.

Previously, you could only send a pin to someone via email. The new feature works for both mobile and desktop versions of Pinterest and will gradually roll out to all users starting today.
