Saved VS Created pins

Hey @PinterestGabby @PinterestRyan @PinterestBrad @PinterestJanice 

I am hoping you can give some clarification for me on the below screenshot, particularly the sentence "However, saved content can only be found when people go to your boards." 

I understand the difference between saved vs created content (the way that Pinterest is currently using the terminology).

What I don't understand is does this sentence mean:

"Saved content can only be found on your profile when people go to your boards, but saved content is still distributed throughout the platform in the various surfaces (home feed, search, related pins etc)."

Or does it mean, "Saved contented can only be found on your profile when people go to your boards, as saved content is no longer distributed throughout the platform in the various surfaces." 

If it DOES mean that saved content is no longer distributed throughout the feeds, does this change only apply to business accounts (as saves are literally what the platform is built on and and therefore could not apply to personal accounts)?

Thanks! 

Carly

Hey @carlyonpurpose, welcome to the PBC and thanks for asking for clarification on this.

Created content is on the ‘Created’ tab on the profile, while your saved content will be located on the ‘Saved’ tab. You and other users can find your saved content on your profile via the ‘Saved’ tab. If you repin your own content, it will show up as a repin in your ‘Saved’ tab, not on the 'Created' tab. 

Please keep in mind that we encourage creators to prioritizing posting original, fresh Pins to see what resonates with your audience. This is true whether you publish content through Pinterest directly or through a third-party scheduling tool. Hope this helps clarify!

Hey @PinterestGabby ! 

Thanks for your reply 🙂 I understand the things you are saying. 

What I am looking for clarification on is this:

Will content that shows up in the SAVED tab get distributed throughout the feeds or will it be confined exclusively in the saved tab? 

No one (or almost no one) goes to our profiles, so what happens far as other users viewing out profiles is largely irrelevant. 

I am currently not "saving" any pins - only publishing new pins. However, understanding how this new change will affect which content gets into the feeds is still vitally important to me. 

(Also, please note + perhaps escalate the glitch that currently causes third -party pins scheduled via tailwind to show up as created instead of saved.) 

Thanks again!!

Hey @carlyonpurpose! It doesn't mean it is exclusively in the saved tab, i.e. it doesn't disappear from feed. That being said, created content is prioritized well above saves on Pinterest. Does that clarify what you were referring to? LMK.

Hey I use tailwind to Schedule my posts and all my latest pins that I created in Canva have ended up in saved and not created. My insta photos etc have ended up in created. Literally every single one so far, they are all new fresh pins so I don’t understand. What can I do to rectify it?

Hi, Sophie. Have you claimed your website? Sounds like you have saved your Instagram photos, so they are showing up as they should.

When I'm uploading pins, whether from saved photos or web link, I have the option to the file them into my "saved" tab's boards. Why the option to upload to the created tab isn't offer (for future actual created content)?

I recently converted my personal acct to a business account. There are a few pins already in my "created" tab which I didn't create but were pinned/uploaded from who knows when. I am manually moving them into my "saved" tab boards. Is t here a faster way to doing this ... similar to "organize" function.

TIA

Hey Gabby! I am creating my own pins from my own content on my own webpage and only the first 2 pins I created were put in my Create tab. The rest are being put in the saved tab instead of the created tab, Any ideas on why this is happening? 

Thanks in advance! : )
