Hacking Pinterest

Natalie Gordon shares an interesting tidbit with the world, a way to hack Pinterest. What she means by that, is that she has figured out the base algorithm as to how items show up first, last, in the middle, etc. When a term is searched. It is a text heavy algorithm. If you pin a picture of a dog and name it “dog dog dog dog dog dog” there is a good chance that soon your pinned image will become first.

I used this article to explain how the Pinterest algorithm decides to show what item when and where on the page in my Project 4 writing.
