This Wednesday (11) Pinterest launched a new feature that reinforces the collaborative factor of the social network. The user can now create folders shared with friends so that both can add ideas on a particular subject. Group members can also insert comments and responses to activities. The function, which is already available to everyone, is ideal for organizing parties and other events with your friends and family.
