Pinterest announces unlimited secret boards

March 11, 2014 Timothy Online Presence

Pinterest announced at the end of February that Pinterest pinners may now create unlimited secret boards. Previously, there was a two-board limit.

Secret boards, while hidden from the visiting public, are useful for many reasons. Chief among these is the ability to build a basic topical board around a product or service and then make the board public as part of a well-designed publicity campaign.

Additionally, the ability to have multiple secret boards provides a convenient place to store ideas for future action without telegraphing your intentions to your competitors.

Secret boards can also be used for posting training materials, links, and other materials for key employees. You can select which other Pinterest accounts have access to a particular secret board.

Bottom line — additional secret boards on Pinterest is a good thing. Contact the Arkansas SBTDC at 800.862.2040 if you need assistance with Pinterest or other social media.
