My main Pinterest page usually looks like this:
I have more than 16,000 pins (and that's not an outrageous number), neatly organized onto 52 labeled "boards" or categories — because there just isn't any way to do it sloppily. You have to put everything somewhere; you can't just make a big, messy pile and leave it lying around....
Actually, you can. You can add a million haphazard things to your "Likes" page. But those aren't really "pins," they're just "likes." You didn't commit to anything. And every single on of them is still going to be perfectly aligned in a grid, as the page above.
So imagine my consternation when I visited my Pinterest page tonight, and got this:
Pinterest reverted to its previous method a few minutes later. I'm also sticking with mine.
