Pinterest launched a new profile look for all users around the world.

"The design, which was started by one of our engineering interns over the summer, draws on international feedback and gives a cleaner look that's consistent across platforms," a spokesperson for the company said in an email.

For one, Pinterest has changed from square to round profile photos, and has centered the design. It has also relocated the follow button to the upper right-hand corner.

It has added more options to the Gear menu, including a "Send" option.

"On the backend, there's more support for internationalization that allows us to more quickly support our 32 languages," the spokesperson said.

Pinterest is one of the few social networks that has actually been showing growth in terms of the amount of referrals it's been sending websites. Shareaholic recently released its quarterly report on the topic, and Pinterest is still in second place when it comes to that. The only other ones actually growing referrals were Facebook, which is sending four times as much traffic to site as Pinterest, and Google+, which is sending far less. More on all of those numbers here.
