New Pinterest Profile Redesign
Pinterest unveiled a total profile redesign today, which judging from the reactions on Mashable’s comments, the vibe isn’t positive. I have to initally agree, although I want to give it a chance to settle on my eyes before outright condemning anything.
Here’s a screenshot of my profile at my personal Pinterest Page (Due to a screen the size of Nevada, I have 6 rows across.):
As you can see, it totally jacked up my 3×3 profile photo board! Back to the drawing board on that 0ne. But the pinboards seem a little more cluttered to me. The main photo isn’t always all that eye-catching, as opposed to being presented with 9 images of the same size to decide which is the most interesting. This design forces you to look at the main photo no matter how dull, and maybe or maybe not look at the rest before moving on. From a marketers standpoint, you don’t want people balking at your boards.
But like I said, I’ll give the new Pinterest design a chance. The CEO (Ben Silbermann)was saying they had dozens of fully-coded sites before deciding on the 3×3 grid. I hope thay don’t get caught up in some “me-too” game that many new companies foolishly engage in.
