Are you on a mission to perfect your Pinterest presence? Organizing your pins just got easier, thanks to a new update to the social network.

This week, Pinterest is rolling out new mass-editing options that will allow users to move pins more quickly and easily. Previously, users who wanted to move pins would have to edit each individual pin, one at a time. With the new update, however, you can reorganize your Pinterest boards in just four quick steps, according to the company's business blog:

  1. Go to your Pinterest board.
  2. Click the Move Pins button.
  3. Select up to 50 pins you'd like to move.
  4. Choose a new board to place selected pins.

Along with the ability to move pins, Pinterest is rolling out the option to copy pins, in case users would like to move pins around while still keeping them on their original boards. [Pinterest for Business: 10 Proven Strategies ]

Users also will have the option to select and delete several pins at once.

However, Pinterest did note that your followers won't be able to see that your pins have been moved unless they go to your page.

"Moving or copying pins won't reinsert them into your followers' home feeds," wrote César Isern, a representative for Pinterest. "The best way to get in front of your followers is to keep pinning new, interesting stuff."

Isern also suggested that businesses curate boards that appeal to different, specific audiences that are relevant to their brands, and to include fun and inspirational pins as well as actionable pins, such as recipes or products. Additionally, he recommended that businesses categorize their boards to make them more searchable and discoverable to other users.
