Snoop has been snooping again and can't wait to tell Dragonia what he has picked up. Let me tell you what he has already told me...
Early this year (from what I can gather) Pinterest put out beta testing on a new method to communicate and share on their platform. It was called Communities, which would be about the same as "groups" on Facebook (for example).
Now Pinterest already had in-place a way for several people to get together to share ideas and comments. This was their original idea behind their Group Boards. From what I can understand, from all of the articles written about Group Boards, is that Pinterest might not have realized how popular and large these boards could grow. As such, in the beginning these boards had size limits to them.
To make a long story short, by the end of March 2o19, Pinterest combined the best of Communities and Group Boards together (more details about this will come in other blogs down the road). In the meantime, especially for us that like to network with Pinterest, commenting has become the "new tool" for being seen. Pins that have comments on them will rank higher now in a suggestion or search than ones that don't.
This is why you might have been seeing some changes in Pinterest recently. As Facebook has comments and 'likes' to boost our posts to help us be seen by others, so it now seems comments does the same for Pinterest.
I have recently read out there that Pinterest is in third place (behind Facebook and Twitter) and fast growing. So why not learn how to use it to the best of one's ability? I am hoping to share some of my discoveries in the weeks to follow as Snoop and I snoop through the Jungle of the Internet looking for clues to help us fight our way out of this confusion.
Snoop has found several articles about Instagram and Pinterest while searching for stories from something called the World Wide Web... we don't know what that means, but he swears by it...
