In addition, Place Pins include contact details of businesses such as hotels and restaurants, allowing users to easily pull up information whenever and wherever and share with friends. With more than 53 million users and more than 750 million travel-related pins on the site already, the new feature combines magazine-style imagery with online maps and is used as a tool to help users plan their trips by adding a map to their new and existing boards. Virtual photo sharing pinboard, Pinterest, has launched ‘Place Pins’ to encourage users to add a location to their pins. “About a year ago, we noticed pinners creating more and more boards around vacations they’re planning and attractions and destinations they want to see someday, so we wanted to find a way to help people turn their travel inspiration into reality and we’ve taken the first step toward that goal with Place Pins,” Pinterest product designer Justin Edmund said.
