More stories: Pinterest has its own carousel to display them

The use of stories on pinterest It is not new. The platform has been using them for some time now, but it is now when it has been encouraged to create a carousel with which they seek to give it more prominence and facilitate the discovery of said content by its users.

This is the new carousel of stories on Pinterest

There are many things that we will hardly be able to escape from and one of them is the stories. We are not going to say that they are everywhere, because there are still platforms that refuse to implement them, but it is true that the most popular have succumbed to this idea and way of sharing content by their users.

Pinterest is no exception and for a long time they have been using their own version of the stories that became popular with Snapchat in the first place and Instagram in the second. Something that caused them to later reach the rest of the platforms of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

Well, now the company has created a new carousel for stories similar to what we can see in many applications and whose main objective is to make it easier for platform users to discover a new way of sharing content by users and brands that are inside. For this reason, some details that are worth highlighting in this implementation of the stories on Pinterest.

The first is that the carousel is at the top, like most, and that is where a series of stories appear that, as a peculiarity, do not expire. In other words, they will always be able to be consulted and that is why the name of this implementation was Story Pins at the time.

The second is that this carousel not only shows the stories of those users you follow, but also offer suggestions of other published stories on the platform by users you do not follow. So it's also an interesting way to discover new content.

With a design that does not have much mystery, but to which some striking aesthetic details do apply, Pinterest stories are gaining prominence and this new carousel demonstrates it. Now it will be necessary to see the acceptance and real use, because for many Pinterest continues to be a network that they consult often, but rather as a visual search engine thanks to its way of displaying the results in images.

Stories only for chosen

Despite the launch of the new carousel, Pinterest stories are still something only for a select few profiles by the platform. These correspond to users with a high level of activity and impact or to brands.

Because of this, you may not be able to accurately judge the impact of stories on Pinterest. The positive part is that, at least, it seems to be a good way to guarantee quality in them. Which helps the rest to value them positively and not as something they do to follow the trend in the use of stories.
