Pinterest revealed its redesign intentions back in January. Now they’re giving everyone a peek at the new look and functionality. Members will receive invites to use the revamped site in the coming weeks.
The emphasis of the redesign is clearly to present users with more of what they’re interested in. “We added a few new things to the close-up view of pins to help you discover things you love that you might not have known about otherwise,” reads the Pinterest blog. A page will now present not just the pictures of what you were looking for, but suggest pins and boards with similar content. There were also some aesthetic changes and modifications to the way people can navigate through the site.
TheNextWeb reports that new Android and iOS apps will be coming soon too. All of this opens the door for the site to monetize at some point the site says. In February, Pinterest was able to secure $200 million in funding, bringing the company’s valuation to $2.5 billion.
