Stay safe, stay inspired

We're living in a stressful time. COVID-19 is having a real impact on all of us—our plans, our families and friends, our day-to-day lives. Over the past weeks, we've seen that Pinterest users have been searching for ways to stay healthy and inspired whether they're sheltering in place, schooling children at home, or concerned about love ones. In response to these searches, Pinterest has taken action to ensure that users are seeing content that will inspire and inform. Here's how we're doing it:

 

Combating misinformation: We’re working with the World Health Organization to get expert information about COVID-19. Anyone who searches for information about the virus will be sent to the WHO page containing verified information. We're also removing any misinformation about the coronavirus and encouraging the following of WHO's account.

 

Today Tab: People need inspiration these days, so on March 24th we launched the Today Tab with curated topics and trending Pins that makes it easy to explore popular and timely ideas. In addition to the latest World Health Organization and CDC news, you'll find trending ideas like kid-friendly baking ideas, self-care tips, family-favorite movies and comfort food recipes. 

 

Curating content: Based on the trends we're seeing from Pinners, we created boards for staying safe and inspired. Our boards range from like "crafting with kids" and "comforting words" to "workouts to destress." We're looking at the most trending boards and recommending more like them.

 

Social media: We want people to stay positive and inspired during these hard times. To help support the physical and emotional health of users, we’re amplifying boards to inspire wellness on our social media — everything from home workouts to indoor activities with kids to your WFH wardrobe. 

 

If you're feeling the tension in these times, get to know Pinterest a little better and see how you can find inspiration on the platform to ease the stress.

Investing in our people

We're continuing to hire, invest in our people and focus on business goals during this time. Our leadership team feels that we need strong talent now more than ever. They are communicating with us daily, updating us as situations change and making sure that Pinployees have the resources they need to feel supported and encouraged.

We're staying connected

We are making the most of this new experience and doing all we can to inspire each other remotely. There have been virtual happy hours, meme sharing, and a lot of support from our HR team. We've been connecting in a new and different ways -- we meet our colleagues' spouses, wave to their children, and their furry children.

Knit Con

Every year, all Pinterest employees ditch their computers to participate in Knit Con, Pinterest's annual two-day internal event to foster creativity and inspiration. With keynote sessions, workshops, open mic nights, and more, there's something (or two things!) for everyone at Knit Con.
