Pinterest Lets You Create As Many Secret Boards As You Like

After numerous requests from users, Pinterest finally launched Secret Boards in late 2012. Listening to feedback it has gotten since then, the company has now gone a step forward, and let users create as many of them as they like.

Pinterest used to only allow six secret boards, but now you can go wild.

Pinterest’s Scott Tong writes:

During the holidays, we gave everyone a few more secret boards so people had a place to plan their gift lists and holiday surprises. Since then, we’ve heard all sorts of interesting ways Pinners are using secret boards, so we’ve decided to give you as many as you’d like!

Secret boards are perfect for planning something you’re not quite ready to reveal to the world—inspiration for that website you’re building for your business, perhaps? Maybe you have personal goals you want to keep, well, personal. Try a secret board—no one will know about your fitness plan for bulking up or leaning down before your upcoming vacation. Don’t forget, you can always invite friends to your secret boards so you can hatch plots together in private.

This is the first feature upgrade from Pinterest since it launched the new and improved “Pin It” button last week.
