Last week Pinterest launched their latest pinning feature, Place Pins. Users can now pin their favourite location whether it is a restaurant, shop or tourist location, you can add an address, phone number and comment about the place. The idea behind the new pin is to create boards that can be utilised while you are out and about or planning your next holiday. In addition to the address, phone number and photos of the location, you can easily get directions to your place pin.
To launch the new pins and show how useful they are, Pinterest has asked over a dozen travel gurus to create special boards like The Top 100 Hotels in the World by Condé Nast Traveler and Angie Eats New York by authors of The Long-Term Traveler's Guide. These boards show how you helpful these boards can be when planning travel or time around town.
