Idea Pins give people more ways to share inspiration with up to 20 pages of videos, images and text. Idea Pins are currently available to some people with a Pinterest business account.
View Idea Pins
Idea Pins appear in your Pinterest home feed or in other places in the Pinterest app. You’ll recognize them by the the story pin icon in the top-left of the Pin. An Idea Pin gives you all the information you need to make a recipe, craft or try a creator’s idea. Some Idea Pins will have a list of details, ingredients or supplies you’ll need to make the Pin. Tap into an Idea Pin from your home feed and swipe through the pages to get creative.
You can add comments, reactions or photos to an Idea Pin just like you would on any other Pin. You can also save Idea Pins to your boards like any other Pin, though you cannot save an individual page from within an Idea Pin.
