Pinterest is known as a community experience. When you share something really interesting, users who know you or don’t know you can repin (or reshare) an item. That’s how the popular site has grown to have millions of users.
When Pinterest started in March 2010, it offered users only the ability to post public boards. But in 2012 it created the option of “secret” boards. The difference is the ability to create unsearchable boards. Why?
Imagine the ability to create boards full of ideas for your husband’s birthday or retirement party. What about a collection of holiday gifts? The secret options are endless. The site offers three secret boards per account. The limit encourages users to pin most boards in public but keep the most secretive topics private.
