Place Pins and place boards

You can Edit any board to add an interactive map or allow other people to Pin to your board. Right now, this feature is only limited to specific Android devices. Your device will need to support the Android Pinterest app 2.0 and higher.

 

Place Pins Android

 

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. Tap Add a map
  3. Check the box next to Add a map to this board?
  4. Make sure to tap Save when you’re finished making changes

 


Adding Place Pins

  1. Press and hold any of your Pins and select the Edit pencil icon
  2. Then tap Add a Place
  3. In the pop-up, type in the name of the shop/restaurant/destination and a city to help narrow your search to the correct region
  4. Tap Save when you're finished making changes

Note: we’ve partnered with some businesses to automatically include location info on their Pins.  For example, Pins from AirbnbAtlas ObscuraBooking.comCitysearchFoursquareHotels.com, JetsetterOpenTableRoadtrippersStreetEasyTruliaUrbanSpoon, and VirtualTourist will have locations attached to their Pinterest content.
