Just got your Pinterest invite and don’t know where you should start? Take a look at these 5 Pinterest tips for beginners.  This is the second of the three-part series dedicated to change you from a novice Pinterest user to the Pinterest ninja that others are going to envy. 

Update Your Pinterest Profile

Pinterest personal profiles have been redesigned and now sport a more streamlined look, reminiscent of Facebook Timeline. Broken into section tabs (Boards, Pins, Likes, Activity, Followers and Following), users can quickly access desired information. In addition, a number of Web browser extensions have been created to speed up the pinning process.

  • Mouse over the small box next to the Edit Profile box beneath your profile picture to cue a Rearrange Boards message.
  • Click on the box to begin rearranging boards (the box will turn red with a white check mark).
  • Left-click the board you wish to reposition and drag the board into its new location. 
  • Click the red box with the white check mark to save your changes.
