Pinterest Rolls Out A Sneak Peek

Pinterest is previewing a new “interests” page, designed to highlight items that match your own personal tastes.

In a blog post, Pinterest says it hopes the interests section will help people find and save more of the things they love. The page will adapt to your interests over time, the company adds, noting that the more you use Pinterest, the better the page becomes.

Right now, the page is just a preview, with various features and improvements in the works. It’s also only available for desktop users but will arrive on mobile soon.


Twitter Updates Its Android Users

Twitter has released an update to its Android users. New features include photo editing tools to make it easier to share photos directly from the service.

Twitter will now make sure its mobile users will always see something new when they pull the timeline down to refresh, even if that “something new” isn’t coming from any of your followers. They’ll add recommended posts from people you don’t follow, trending topics and suggestions about new people to follow to your timeline.
