Note: Right now Place Pins and place boards are only available on the web, certain Android devices (running Pinterest app version 2.0 and higher), and the iPhone (running the Pinterest app version 3.2 and higher).
What are Place Pins and place boards?
Place Pins have a specific location connected to them. Now, you can add a place name to your Pin and get the address and other details. Place boards highlight all your Pins on a map.
Note: the locations for Place Pins are provided by Foursquare, but there isn’t a “check-in” feature on Pinterest.
Create a place board
New board: Click Create a board from your profile. Fill out the information just like a regular board, but make sure to toggle the “Add a map?” setting to Yes.
Existing board: Click Edit on the board you’d like to turn into a place board. Toggle the “Add a map?” setting to Yes.
Note: only the owners of a board can turn the board into a place board.
Turn off place boards
Click Edit on the board where you want to remove the map.
Toggle the “Add a map?” setting to No.
Add Place Pins
Click on a Pin that you'd like to add to a place board
Choose board, click Pin it
Go to the board
Click on the plus icon on the Pin
Type in the name of the place and the location
The name and location will be saved to the Pin
If you can't find a location through search, choose "Search around the world" or specify the city by clicking on "Change City".
Refresh your browser, and the Pin will no longer appear on the map
Then, add a place to your Pin again
Foursquare provides locations for Place Pins, and we know that some places don’t exist yet. If you can’t find a location for your Pin, [add it to Foursquare](https://foursquare.com/login?continue=%2Fadd_venue) and then you’ll find it on Pinterest. We're working closely with the Foursquare team to add more locations to the map. If you notice that the location already exists in Foursquare, you can request to [edit the location](http://support.foursquare.com/entries/211235).
