Pinterest Launches Curated Newsletters

Pinterest Launches Curated Newsletters | Social Networker |
Pinterest has rolled out a newsletter that emails users curated content.


From Mashable: "Users on Pinterest usually have to seek interesting content for themselves, but a new feature quietly rolled out today drives them to even more personalized content.

...many users are sure to appreciate Pinterest’s new weekly email newsletter, making it easier to find even more great pins and helping them keep tabs on how their own pins are doing.

Mimicking the website’s pinboard style, each pin or board in the email is linked to the website, but users are unable to re-pin or like a post directly from the newsletter.


The newsletter lists a few popular boards, pins from friends that might be of interest and a useful feature for brands especially: your most popular pins of the week."
