The news: Pinterest is testing ways of integrating collage content from its standalone Shuffles app, starting with shopping features that would allow users to shop for products featured in collages, per TechCrunch.
How it works: Like with Pinterest’s shoppable pins, users will be able to tap items in Shuffles collages to see brand, price, and other product information, as well as similar items for sale.
Other developments: As part of its drive to make every part of its platform shoppable, Pinterest also announced the development of “Pinterest Premiere Spotlight,” a new advertising feature that will give advertisers additional prominence in searches.
Our take: Pinterest is better positioned than most social platforms to profit from social commerce. That said, the combination of slowing user growth (just 0.4% in the US this year, per our estimates) and fierce competition from TikTok could dim its advertising appeal, making ad innovation and user engagement efforts all the more crucial.
