The new Pinterest app on Facebook known as 'PinView' combines these two social media platforms to display what users love about both sites.
The new app allows users to see their timelines like they would see their Pinterest boards, showing a more visual-oriented page with less text. The Pinterest boards allow users to pin pictures, ideas and other miscellaneous things to keep them in a photobook-like feature that allows them and other users to look at them and possibly re-pin information. The new feature on Facebook brings a new board-like quality to the current timeline, and merges the two technological and information-sharing worlds.
Pinterest has grown exponentially in the past year, and Facebook has clearly taken notice of these developments.
