As a self-described "visual bookmarking tool that helps you discover and save creative ideas," Pinterest is one of the most popular social media apps around. Over 100 million members use it on a monthly basis to get or share ideas on everything from do-it-yourself home improvement projects to cooking recipes to wedding planning. With all of the popular social media apps around, it is easy to find yourself overrun with notifications and messages coming from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr, Vine and so on.
You can clear your Pinterest browsing history by navigating to your Profile > Settings > Account Settings and scrolling to the bottom until your see "Cached Data." Tap any of the three buttons to reset your browsing history, image cache or recent contacts.
Pinterest has announced plans to add a new Edit Home Feed option that aims to makes your account more personal. The new feature basically offers content suggestions based on your pinning history. For example, if you pin a lot of sports related images, Pinterest will show you more sports related pins. The new feature will also introduce Unfollow Boards, so you can stop seeing content you don't like, and personalized board suggestions based on the websites you like to visit.
With internet paranoia at an all time high, Pinterest was quick to point out its Do Not Track option. First of all, Pinterest will only track websites that feature a "Pin It" button, however if that's still too much data collecting for your tastes, you will be able to opt out of the feature.
