Discovering ideas on Pinterest

Explore
You can find Pins, ideas, and videos from Pinners, tastemakers, brands and publishers by clicking on the compass icon on web, or tapping on the magnifying glass on your mobile device.

On your mobile device, you can select which categories appear at the top by swiping to the right and tapping on the red + icon. If you’d like to see all the Pins from a specific category, scroll to the bottom of the page and tap on See all Pins

Searching
You can search for Pins, boards or people. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, trying using our search guides. Start with a simple search term, like “dinner ideas.” Then click one of the search guides to narrow things down—like “quick” or “for kids.”

If you want to just browse around, try poking through our categories. Click the category menu to the right of the search bar to browse topics like “Art” or “Cars and motorcycles.”

Following
If you find an interesting board or profile, you can follow it. Following means new Pins from that person or board will show up in your home feed. You can always tweak who and what you’re following later.

More ways to discover
If you find a really good Pin and want to see more like it, save that original Pin and we’ll show you a recommended board of Pins you might like. Every time you save Pins, follow boards or people, the Pins in your home feed get better and better.
