Pinterest has made good on CEO Ben Silbermann’s promise earlier this week to redesign profiles on the site.
New Pinterest profile pages rolled out Friday morning. The new pages boast a cleaner, more streamlined design that gives you a Facebook-esque Timeline.
The tab on the left detailing who is following you and who has recently repinned your photos and videos is gone. Instead, a horizontal bar on the top of the page details that information. You’ll also note that there’s more blank space on the side and top, giving the page a less cluttered look. In another change, the default for the profile page shows recent pins, rather than Pinboards.
The vertically oriented photos and the space for a large rectangular photo on top also resemble Facebook’s new Timeline profiles.
I really like the way it looks now, however like most users I’m typically pinning from my smartphone (but I digress…). The new look and feel of Pinterest finally gives me the feeling of “online organization” the way that the social media site was truly intended to be.
