Could I be keeping something from you? Certainly. However, until now, everything I’ve been pinning on Pinterest is there for the whole world to see.
And it’s a board. Don’t get bored; this is actually pretty interesting. You, as pinner of your master universe, can now have three boards that you can keep to yourself. You don’t have to show a soul. Not sure if this was all rolled out at once or not. My secret boards appeared at the bottom of the page, below my existing boards, on November 8.
Wow. Hiding stuff. Bummer you can’t hide your existing boards; that's because there may have been activity from other pinners there. Your secret boards need to be freshly started.
Looks just like another board and according to Pinterest, a pin on a secret board will not show up. Anywhere. Sweet.
|Creating a secret board|
There could come a day when you’ve had enough of one of your secret boards (can’t imagine why) and you’d like to start something fresh. No problem! Delete it and then you’re free to reach your quota of three all over again!
Oh and one more little thing that Pinterest doesn’t mention in their support area. You have the option to switch your secret board from “off” (private) to “on” (public). And when you do, here’s the message that pops up:
It’s a one-time deal. Once your secret board is made public, you can’t go back! Pinterest, you’re making life complicated now; so many decisions to make!
Adding this paragraph two hours after posting: JUST got an email from Pinterest announcing secret boards. This is close to 48 hours after I first noticed it on my profile! Glitch in your contact system, Pinterest?
Carly Simon sang about not having secrets back in the 70’s and below she does a jazzy rendition of that tune. The lyrics state: “we tell each other everything” …okay, so this statement doesn’t apply to Pinterest anymore. Enjoy!
