Until now. <br /> <br /> Today we’re introducing our newest suite of merchant tools to help retailers reach customers this holiday season and beyond, including a new storefront profile, faster Catalogs feed ingestion, collections as a shopping ad format, video for collections, automatic bidding, conversion insights and analysis, and an improved product tagging test. 2020-10-27T01:00:00 Pinterest launches iOS widget for the growing number of Pinners looking for daily inspiration from their home screen As the home for inspiration, it’s no wonder people are looking to Pinterest for inspiration for their home screen.

It’s hard to feel inspired if you don’t feel represented. Which is why we’ve increased the quality and coverage of skin tone ranges and improved the technology to detect multiple skin tones in top search results. <br /> <br /> With the recent introduction of Story Pins and curated spaces, we’re committed to ensuring that 50% of managed creators we’re working with come from underrepresented groups. And, in the coming weeks, we’re introducing a new way for retailers of all sizes, advertisers and creators to self-identify if they’re from an underrepresented group so their content will appear in these emerging spaces, including the Today tab, Shopping Spotlights and The Pinterest Shop. Those with business profiles who are interested can update their information in the settings menu under “Community Information.” 2020-10-21T09:00:00 Pinterest Appoints Former Disney Executive Salaam Coleman Smith to Board of Directors Today Pinterest announced it has appointed Salaam Coleman Smith, former Executive Vice President of Programming and Strategy at Disney’s ABC Family and Freeform and former President of Comcast NBCUniversal’s Style Media, to its Board of Directors effective October 31, 2020. 2020-10-20T13:00:00 Pinterest integration now live in Microsoft Edge We’re always working on ways to make it easy to discover inspiration through Pinterest, including powering ideas off of Pinterest itself.

Their first-hand, lived experiences of racism and injustice. How the murder of George Floyd—a friend, a father, a son—forced the world to face the reality that the systemic racism facing the black community for generations remains very real today. It’s wrong. This has got to change. Because people are being murdered. And Black Lives Matter.   2020-06-02T21:00:00 Ben S.
