Pinterest Update – Show a floating Pin It button over any image

You may have noticed that some businesses have custom Pinterest hover buttons for their site’s images, and we’re excited to tell you that we’ve finally made an official one!

The On Hover Pin It button is just like the regular Pin It button, but it only shows up when a person mouses over an image on your site it’s a Pinterest update.

People pin to collect things they want to do in the future. When someone uses the Pin It button, they’re often signaling this intent, sharing their aspirations to their Pinterest followers and driving new visitors to your content. Hover buttons are a subtle reminder to pin, so adding these buttons can lead to more pinning and even more referral traffic.

Best of all: it only takes one line of code to get these buttons!

<script type="text/javascript" src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"
    data-pin-hover="true"
></script>

Want to add them to your site? Get started here. You can definitely still use our regular Pin It button, and we think these new hover buttons are pretty nice, too!

Google+ profile & page improvements

Google spend lots of time listening to users feedback, and Mar 5, 2013, They launched some profile and page updates that Google Plus users are asking for. These include:

– A new tab for your Local reviews. In addition to your photos, +1’s and YouTube videos, there’s now a place for all your Local reviews. Highlight your favorite restaurants, or hide the tab completely via settings — it’s completely up to you.

– An easier way to edit your info. The ‘About’ tab now consists of separate cards (like Story, Places, and Links) — each with its own prominent edit link. As always: you can share specific fields with specific circles, or keep them just for you.

– Bigger cover photos, with a better aspect ratio. Cover photos are much larger than before (up to 2120px by 1192px), and they display in 16×9 when fully expanded. This way more images can be used as cover photos, and there’s more room for your selection to shine.
