The long and eagerly anticipated Pinterest Board Sections seem to be about to be launched

Online scrapbooking is about to get a whole lot easier.

The long and eagerly anticipated Pinterest Board Sections seems to be about to launch on the Pinterest Platform. The most requested member feature is about to launch. No official word has yet been given from the Pinterest Blog nor have the news channels jumped on this yet but as you can see from the screen captures below we have them of a fashion here in the UK 😉

UPDATE 11/11/2017

TechCrunch and Engadget have both now confirmed that board sections are now live with Infobunny reporting the news 36 hours before these two big news giants. 😉

Pinterest Board Sections are a new way to categorize your content on Pinterest, boards within boards if you like. We discovered the new feature while creating a new Twitter board for our article on How Twitter has increased the character limit of Tweets to 280.

As you can see on the screen captures below we now have Pinterest Board Sections

Pinterest Board Sections – Here is how it works so far

When you click Add section you are present with a screen where you can add your board sections.

Give your board section a name and click add.

We created a test board called Social Media Tips you can see it below

Click organize and select pins that you want to move from the main board feed to the new Board Section that you have created. Click the pins that you would like to organize or move into your new board section and click move and you will see a screen like the one below, with your selections, moved to your board section below your main pinboard name and description.

That’s all for now, I just wanted to break the news that Pinterest Board Sections are almost with us.

Have fun organizing your pins into your new board sections. I will be back to expand this quick guide on how to use Pinterest Board Sections very soon.

Let me know what you think in the comments below

    Hi Dexter,

    It’s a great new feature and well reported. I actually learned about the change Pinterest was making around the same time you did I think, then you confirmed it with your article here. As is your usual style very informative and good work getting it out before the big news groups!

    Hi Dexter,
    Well isn’t that interesting. You are right on it. Had a look at Techcrunch -Pinterest definitely wants to the home for bigger ideas as in weddings into smaller components while sitting on the same board.
    The top requested feature adding another abstraction layer onto a board for those who are more aggressive about keeping their ideas in some logical flow. Diving deeper into niches, lots of intent for brands and marketers.
    Good news for us! Thanks for the advance info.

    I am in the process or organizing my Pinterest boards. I’m a real junky! The sections is a big help to me. I have always kept my boards in alphabetical order. I can see the sections being a problem. I am thrilled about this update!!!! I already have one board & the sections all over the place. I can not find a way to organize the sections inside a board.

    Has anyone run into this problem?

    Anyone found a solution?

    Certainly Not looking a gift Horse in the mouth, so to speak. Small issue to deal with.

    Thank You
