Pinterest Secret Boards : 5 ideas to use them
Recipes, Decoration, Fashion, DIY… Pinterest is a great source of Inspiration. Existing for about 3 years, there is not a lot of articles about this Pinterest feature to create secret boards… And yet, possibilities are endless !
Here is 5 possibilities to use them
#1 Surprise Someone
Birthday party, Mother’s day gift, Brunch… Secret boards are very useful if you want to plan your recipes and your decoration without informing all your friends and followers.
You can even work on a secret group project.
Make your secret board a group secret board to allow your team or friends to add their ideas and comments !
#2 Collect gift ideas
When it is almost Christmas (or even during the year), a Pinterest secret board is perfect to collect your gift ideas for your close family and friends !
#3 Curate content
If you are writing an article or even a book, you probably want to gather your sources in one place, so as to read them when you want… and be sure your followers can’t know it.
#4 Plan an event
Wedding, Baby Shower… Maybe you want to plan an event and get some inspiration on Pinterest. A secret board is ideal to start thinking alone without informing your followers about this coming event… before making your board public as soon as the event is known, and also public
#5 Organise a journey
You can combine 2 Pinterest features to create a secret board… with a map ! So you can list the places to visit, the restaurants to try, the hotels to book…
What you need to know about Secrets Boards
Secret boards are really… secret !
They do not appear in search results, your follower’s home feed, or even the Pins section of your profile !
You can create a collaborative secret board
If you and another one are following each other, you can invite this person to contribute to your secret group board. Notice that you remain the only one that can make this board public.
You can make public a secret board… but the contrary is not possible !
Only a new board can be a secret board. If you make it public, it won’t be possible to undo this (it is logical, because if your pins are pinned by other pinners… they are not secret anymore!)
