Place Pins have a specific location connected to them. Now, you can add a place name to your Pin and get the address and other details. Place boards highlight all your Pins on a map. 

Note: The locations for Place Pins are provided by Foursquare, but there isn’t a “check-in” feature on Pinterest.

Creating a place board

  1. Tap Edit on an existing board you’d like to modify or you can create a new place board
  2. Toggle the Show Map option to ON
  3. Tap Save Changes
  4. Note: You’ll be able to switch any board back to normal by switching this setting back to OFF
