Pinterest Launches ‘Place Pins’: A Map Overlay for Your Travel Pins

In the interest of further proving to everyone why they’re not just the world’s largest collection of shoe and cupcake porn … social media juggernaut Pinterest today announced a new Place Pin feature.

This comes in response to the company seeing so many users attempt to hack together bucketlists of trips and destinations. According to the Pinteresting peeps (get it?) at Pinterest, the goal of this new feature is to make it “even easier to plan a vacation with friends, create a collection of memorable places or plot out any of your interests by location.”

One notable thing we like about this is the capability to plan your upcoming trips collaboratively with friends and family. Everyone can share a single board and add their own places and must-do experiences.

If you’re not sure how this’ll actually work, the company offers a series of examples from heavy hitter travel brands like Four Seasons and National Graphic for “inspiration”.

The new feature is available to all Pinterest users immediately.

(Oh … and, if you haven’t already, join us on Pinterest, won’t you?)
