Hi, Pinterest!!! I’m an avid Pinterest user (sometimes abuser) but this year I’ve been sooo good! I’ve made several projects from my DIY boards and I’ve even utilized you to get organized in my career (about to graduate from MBA.) So, since I’ve been so good I wonder if you would kindly grant me three wishes. They’re just three
suggestions pleads on improvements that would make my Pinterest experience sooo much more useful :D
1. I wish I could have separate notifications for comments, new followers and repins. Honestly, I don’t care that much about who repins me. I care a little more about new followers but I care significantly more about comments left on my pins. Comments are really important!
2. I wish I could favorite some accounts. There are a few accounts that are very important to me and I wish I could somehow separate them from the rest…which takes me to my next request…
3. I wish I could separate the pins on my homepage by accounts. Once you follow so many accounts, your homepage just becomes a muddy mix of food, fitness, DIYs, and quotes… and I’m not always in the mood to look at all these together. I’d love it if I could choose to see pins from only certain accounts.
Please, Pinterest…please! I promise to be a much more productive Pinterester next year!
