Pinterest tests news tab on mobile

Pinterest has launched a news section for those using the app on smartphones, which will be tested over the coming weeks.

The tab will provide Pinners with information about what their Facebook friends are up to, as well as updates about the Pinners, brands and boards that are being followed.

Cat Lee, product manager at Pinterest, explained: “You’ll discover things like the latest projects people are collecting pins for, or interesting companies they’ve found to follow.”

However, she added that pins on secret boards will remain to be kept private.
