I joined Pinterest early on and understand its appeal. I keep a low profile partly due to copyright concerns about pinning and sharing work that is not mine to share in this way. I have sometimes wished that I could pin images and create boards for my eyes only. Now Pinterest allows you to do just that with Pinterest Secret Boards.
According to the official announcement, if you pin something on a secret board, it will not show up anywhere else on Pinterest including searches. You can also invite others to pin to a secret board which offers intriguing collaboration possibilities (eg planning a wedding). If you are invited to someone else’s secret board, it won’t count against your three board limit – just keep in mind that the person who created the board can make it public at any time and, once a board is public, you cannot reinstate “secret” status. Have you set up your secret board(s)?!
