Pinterest is one of the most popular social networking site these days. And when it comes to driving traffic to the websites, it is also a top one. Users post and share various types of images on the Pinterest boards. So far, there was no privacy for the pinned images by a user. It means if somebody is following you then he/she can see all of your Pinterest Boards and the pinned images without any restrictions. So, a Pinterest user was not able to use it for the personal and private bookmarking of the images or websites.
But now Pinterest is out with a brand new feature which gives you the freedom to create the Secret Boards on Pinterest. The content pinned on these Secret Pinterest Boards will not be available to your followers. The best thing is that Pinterest Secret Boards are available on iPhone and Android apps of Pinterest too.
