4 Reasons Why I Upgraded To The New Pinterest

In case you haven’t heard, Pinterest made a major upgrade to their site last month. I made the change and love it!

Here are 4 great reasons to upgrade now:

1. Bigger pins
This is the best part of the upgrade – bigger images! Everything is bigger and bolder here. It’s exactly what I’d expect from Pinterest, after all it’s a visual photo sharing site.


2. Simpler Navigation
It’s clean and easy to navigation around the site. This makes me want to stay on the site longer and play!


3. Analytics
It’s about time! Now you can easily see stats but you have to verify your account first. And the stats don’t start until you upgrade to the new Pinterest.


4. Easier to rearrange your boards
They got rid of the pesky rearrange board button so now you just drag and drop the boards. This is way better!


Are you ready to switch? Let’s get started!

But before you do, please be sure to follow me on Pinterest!

When you first log into Pinterest you’ll see this at the top of the page or you can click on your user name in the top right hand corner.
