This week we are making some more improvements to the homepage, which will include the removal of the community-curated Pinterest boards.
We know that some of you will find this upsetting and so we’ve written a blog post about the changes and the reasoning behind our decisions here:
We’re really sad to see the Pinterest boards go from the front page too, but unfortunately we’re just not getting enough submissions and the boards that are published are not being clicked on or converted to sales. The good news is that the space will be replaced with a panel of recently listed items.
However, we really love seeing your boards and we know that many of you enjoy curating content. If we can get more people involved in curating Pinterest boards (or themed collections of items on Folksy on another platform), we’d like to re-introduce them somehow. So if you have any ideas for how we could use Pinterest or other platforms in a different or better way, and get more people within the community involved in curating, please leave your suggestions here.
In the meantime, please do keep curating boards and submit them using the same link http://folksy.it/yourhomepage - we will continue to tweet our favourites and include them in the Folksy Weekly newsletter.
