MIAMI (CNET) — According to CBS-owned CNET, one of the Internet’s most popular social networks has pushed its doors wide open: Pinterest has started open registration.
This means users can sign up for an account without having to wait for an invite, the company said in a blog post. In the past, people had to request an invite from Pinterest or be invited by a friend who already had a Pinterest account. Invites allowed the site to control the volume of new users so that its servers were not overwhelmed, according to Pinterest.READ MORE: London-Bound American Airlines Flight Returned To MIA After Passenger Refused To Wear A Mask
Now, the site can handle any new traffic that comes its way.
“We’re really excited to have the capacity to offer Pinterest to more people and if you’re a Pinner with friends who’ve been waiting on the sidelines, we hope you’ll let them know,” the blog reads.READ MORE: Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis Finishes Chemotherapy For Breast Cancer
