Four reasons to upgrade to the new Pinterest

In case you haven’t heard, Pinterest made a major upgrade to their site last month. I made the change and love it!

Why you should upgrade

Here are 4 great reasons to upgrade now:

1. Bigger pins. This is the best part of the upgrade – bigger images! Everything is bigger and bolder here. It’s exactly what I’d expect from Pinterest, after all it’s a visual photo sharing site.

2. Simpler Navigation. It’s clean and easy to navigation around the site. This makes me want to stay on the site longer and play!

3. Analytics. It’s about time! Now you can easily see stats but you have to verify your account first. And the stats don’t start until you upgrade to the new Pinterest.

4. Easier to rearrange your boards. They got rid of the pesky rearrange board button so now you just drag and drop the boards. This is way better!
