Pinterest Launches Business Accounts

Businesses now have dedicated space on Pinterest.

The image-based social media site now lets businesses identify themselves by name and verify their identities using a hidden line of code. When the code is recognized, verified businesses receive a badge on their Pinterest profiles.

The site has also made it easier for businesses to add Pin It and Follow buttons to their websites, as well as brand-new widgets that showcase their pins.

Finally, Pinterest has launched a business microsite featuring case studies from top brands, as well as business best practices. Learn more here.
