As you know, Pinterest is a love of mine so when they do something amazing I’m excited to find out about it. What Pinterest has done is take a cue from its community and what it enjoys and has really enhanced the user experience. Now, you have the ability to search for a type of recipe and specify any allergies or diet you are on.
The photo above is an example of me searching for Grilled Chicken. On the left hand side, you can see that I could have made choices to narrow down the types of recipes that I was looking for. I also can search for specific ingredients as well. I think that the “Indulge Me” category is a nice touch if you are not looking to stay on the healthy side. Not only is this great for the users, but also for those who post recipes to Pinterest. From what I understand, this function works best if you are using the Rich Pins feature. With this kind of capability, who knows what they will come up with next!

Another recent change is to animated GIF’s. Previously, when a GIF was pinned, a person had to click away from Pinterest to see it play. Most people that go to their favorite social media sites are territorial and a little leery about clicking away from where they are to go outside. Now Pinterest has a play option so that you can play the GIF without leaving the platform.
