Pinterest has added some new categories to its growing list. Considering the content that saturates the popular social network, I'm kind of surprised these categories didn't already exist, but Pinterest has now added: Quotes, Tattoos and Weddings.

Here's a quick look at the complete list of categories:

"All our old categories have also been improved so you should see less miscategorized pins as you browse," Pinterest notes in a blog post. "We’ll always be adjusting our technologies to make them more accurate, but we really appreciate the feedback we received to get us to this point."

The company also notes that it has tweaked several other category names, "to better showcase the interests and communities we've seen grow on Pinterest."

The Pets category has become Animals. The Prints & Posters category has been renamed Illustrations & Posters.

The changes are rolling out throughout the next week.
