Pinterest today announced the launch of a new social collaboration tool, called the "activity feed" for group boards. This section of the app will let members weigh in with a quick like or comment, @ mention another user, or start a new thread, and includes updates when members add new pins, create new sections, new members join, someone likes or comments, and more.


The app had comment support before, but each comment had to be attached to a specific pin. Now all comments will be organized in the activity feed so that conversations are easier to follow, and users will be able to start threads of their own on the collaborative board for all members to see, or under specific activities in the feed.

Pinterest is hoping to further facilitate the use of its platform as a party-planning tool for birthdays, weddings, and other events by introducing deeper social features that keep its users within the app. Earlier this year, the company introduced a "Following" tab that makes it easier to discover new ideas from users you follow.
The majority of Pinners use group boards to collaborate with family and friends as they plan parties, events and projects together. These updates are in direct response to requests from Pinners just like these, and they're part of our ongoing effort to make Pinterest a more productive place to bring events and other projects to life.
The group activity feed will be available starting today across Pinterest's mobile apps and on the web.

I despise this platform for their spam on almost every google photo search result hiding behind a „install app to view“ wall. Google should rank them at the bottom honestly. There must be some money involved for those to rank so well

Ask macrumors. There's no reason whatsoever for "news" like this.

I hate that. Is there a Safari plug-in or a Google preference that deletes search results from a specific URL?

EDIT — I found the answer. Google used to have a Block Site from search results feature. They discontinued it in 2013. There’s a Chrome extension that does this but as far as I know, nothing for Safari.



I can’t wait for Pinterest to go down in flames. Everybody hates the damn thing and I can’t remember the last time it was relevant or got linked to in purpose.
