Pinterest Secret Boards: 10 Reasons To Use This New App Feature

There are just some things you'd prefer to keep to yourself.

Just last week, Pinterest announced that they added a new feature which allows users to curate secret boards that aren't visible to the public. Evrhet Milam, software engineer at Pinterest, disclosed on the website's blog that this option has been one of the most requested features, because, let's face it, there are just some things you'd prefer to keep to least for now.

Every user can add up to three secret boards. Just click to create a new board, chose the secret setting and whenever you're ready to reveal your boards to your followers, you can easily make it public. Don't worry, your secret pins won't show up anywhere online, so you can be confident that no one will judge your Spice Girls board -- so go nuts!
