Gals, the new Pinterest search tools are going to change your life! I didn’t know I could be so excited for a search engine, but here I am! This gets a special blog post because I am that excited about it! Okay okay, maybe I’m a little more excited because I am a social media manager, but let me explain and you’ll see what I mean.
You can read all about the new features rolling out from Pinterest itself, but what it doesn’t cover is the new search tool in the Chrome browser extension.
If you don’t have the Pinterest Chrome extension, you can get it here. With this, when you hover over images with your mouse, the Pinterest save icon will pop up allowing you to pin that image. You can also right-click the image and save it that way too. With the update, there should also be a small search icon next to the save icon.
If you select the search icon, you’ll see a Pinterest search with images from Pinterest similar to that image (!!!!). You can select only portions of the image and it will show you like images for your selection.
