Creating a Pinterest private board

Pinterest rolled out private boards this week, giving each user the option of creating up to three "secret" image boards that no one can see unless they authorize specific individuals to view them.

Private boards on Pinterest are something users have long requested as a way to use the image-sharing site to work on private projects or simply to collect  images privately. By default, all images shared on Pinterest have been public until now.

Pinterest announced the option in its blog yesterday, titling it "Announcing secret boards for the holidays" and suggesting people can use them to track holiday gift plans.

The new option is available through a button labeled "Secret" that you slide from left to right when you create a new image board. It's also available on each user's profile page via a "Create a Secret Board" link. The private option is not available for previously created image boards, though, only for new boards.
