Hi everyone, excited to unveil the next release note roundup for our creator community. If you missed last month’s roundup, you can catch up on what we shared here. As a reminder for those who are new to our release notes, each month, we’ll share an article in our Product FAQ covering recent updates, known issues and more. The Product FAQ is your space to stay informed and up-to-date with everything related to tools and products you use to build an audience Pinterest.
Please be sure to rate this article if it helped you, or leave a comment below to share feedback or if you need more information about a recent change or update. 🌟
We know that creators rely on up to date, clear performance metrics to optimize their content strategy. In response to this need, last year our team launched estimated metrics that update in near real-time on Idea Pin and Video Pin content for the first 7 days after publishing. Last week (drumroll, please) we launched real-time metrics on all formats - static, Idea and Video Pins - and extended the availability of real-time data to the lifetime of a Pin for Idea and Video Pins.
This is a huge improvement to the previous functionality, and should help you have a closer pulse on the performance of all of your individual pins. Later this year, we will bring real-time metrics to Pinterest Analytics so you can have a deeper understanding of how your overall account is performing. Yup that’s right, you heard it here first! 😉
As a reminder, real-time metrics are estimates and may change after publishing. Learn more here.
ICYMI, we recently launched the Creator Code: our commitment to keeping Pinterest a safe and inspiring place to create. The Creator Code is a pledge that creators must accept when creating Idea Pins that follow our Community guidelines. For more information about the Creator Code, check out this article in our FAQ.
As a part of this work and our commitment to creating a kinder internet, we also announced comment moderation features that are aimed at providing a safer experience for our Pinner and Creator communities. As of this month, a few of these features are now available:
In the coming months, look forward to more moderation tools such as keyword filtering as well as improvements to our detection signals so we aren’t hiding good comments along the way.
In December 2020, we announced we were working to build new tools meant to make it even easier for you to plan on Pinterest. As of last month, these features are now live on public, private, and group boards on Android, iOS and Web globally. 🌎
We heard feedback about wanting more ways to customize your Idea Pin. As of early April, you can now rotate, drag, AND scale text, video and images in the publishing flow on iOS. Additionally, our team has made some improvements to the responsiveness of these elements to make for fast and easy edits. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
