Pinterest Will Test a Redesign

Pinterest will begin testing a redesign with a “very small” group of beta testers “over the coming weeks,” the company said today.

The redesign will provide clearer navigation and more opportunities to discover new content.

The new home page will feature links to content verticals, such as DYI and animals, and to popular pins.

Additionally, each pinned photo will display more information about what is depicted and where it comes from.

“We’ve added more information related to pins, so it’s easier to find things you’re interested in. For example, on each pin, you’ll see pins from the same board, other boards this pin was pinned to, and a whole slew of related pins,” the company said in a blog post.

Instead of the box suggesting users to follow, the redesigned page includes a stream of recent activity, making the visual social network a bit more like its temporal counterparts, Twitter and Facebook.

The company will fine-tune the redesign based on feedback from its beta testers. Users can sign up to join the test group.
