Pinterest today introduced a new feature to help millions of people stay at home to make the most of the isolation time and continue to nurture their creative minds. The new Today tab features managed topics and trending pins, making it easier for users to discover popular and current ideas. Pinterest has also launched a compassionate search on the Internet, as the number of queries for calming quotes has tripled in recent weeks, the official blog notes.
Meanwhile, Pinterest bans misinformation about COVID-19 and ads that claim to offer cures or treatments, or that want to exploit the COVID-19 crisis. Users can also easily flag disinformation via an option on pins. In the coming weeks, Pinterest will begin to show credible information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on topics such as hand washing during the coronavirus epidemic.
