Saw something inspiring on Pinterest? Want to try it, but afraid how it will turn out to be in reality? Fret not; from now onwards you can follow the tried and tested recipes, fashion style or some DIY method without worrying with a new ‘Tried it’ feature that tells you how does the product or the thing fare in reality.

Content sharing platform, Pinterest has launched a new feature- ‘Tried it’ to enable users to share the ideas they’ve actually tried and would recommend to others. When you find a Pin you want to try, Pinterest will also provide you with a new feed that shows who’s used that idea or product.

The new feature will be rolled out this week to iOS and Android and will arrive on the web in the coming weeks.

The company believes that the new feature will streamline the discovery process on mobile and also help users to surface post-purchase product reviews.

With another feature, named “About This Pin” you can see tips, comments and photos from previous pinners — displayed in big, bold text — and add your own.

Pinterest also offers feedback box by asking “How’d it go?” You can then click on a happy-faced “Love It” button or a sad-faced “Not for Me.” There is also an option to write your own note or tip.

Pinterest recently hit the 150 million monthly active user’s mark, 80 percent of whom use the network’s mobile app. On the other hand, Pinterest is also raking in more money from ads—up to $300 million in revenue this year from $100 million last year.

Pinterest CEO Ben Silbermann told the Wall Street Journal, “We’re really focused on the intent of the people that are using the service. If you’re building a service that’s primarily based on building as much time spent as possible, and then arbitraging that time into a mass-market media channel, daily is the right currency.”
