Are you having trouble finding all of your previous likes on Pinterest?
This can be quite frustrating. After all, what’s the point of liking something if you’re never able to see it again, right?
Thankfully, they’re all stored together in one place. So, if you know where to look, you can view all of them immediately without having to sort through all of your old pins.
In this article, we’ll show you how to see your likes on Pinterest, as well as share some other tips to organize your Pinterest page better!
How To View Your Previous Likes On Pinterest
Since 2017, Pinterest moved the place where likes are stored.
While they previously had their own section in which they can be viewed, they have now been moved to their own secret Pinterest board called ‘Your Pinterest Likes’.
This board was created automatically if you had any liked Pins when this change was made, and is available to view on your profile. Note however that the board is completely private, and nobody else can view it unless you invite them to it.
Additionally, you will have to be signed in in order to view it.
To view your, ‘Your Pinterest Likes’ board, follow these steps:
- Log into Pinterest.
- Visit your profile.
- Click on the ‘Saved’ tab to view all of your Pinterest boards.
- Scroll down until you find the board called ‘Your Pinterest Likes’ and open it.
There you have it!
If you are having trouble finding it, you can also access it directly at this link:
Simply replace “YOURUSERNAMEHERE” with your username to pull up the board, and show all of your liked Pins on Pinterest!
Pinterest Recently Removed The Like Feature
If you’ve used Pinterest recently, you may have noticed that the like feature is now gone.
This is because Pinterest removed it in 2017, and the update has been fully rolled out to all users now.
While we’ll share a workaround in just a moment, this is why your Pinterest likes are no longer in the same place that they used to be.
When the change was rolled out, Pinterest changed its layout to remove the like button on Pins, as well as the old place liked pins used to be stored. The ‘Your Pinterest Likes’ board was created automatically, and this is the only real place to see them now.
Despite the outcries of their users, it doesn’t appear that Pinterest has any intention of ever bringing the like button back.
Hence, we suggest using the workaround below that gives many of the same benefits that the like button once had – and even a few extra!
What To Do Now That The Like Feature Is Gone
If the like feature was a critical part of Pinterest for you, don’t worry!
You can get almost all of the same benefits by creating a hidden board (or simply continuing to use the ‘Your Pinterest Likes’ board) and sharing all of the Pins that you’d like there.
This achieves practically the same thing. You have a curated list of Pins that you like, but they aren’t visible to others.
The only drawback is that it’s a bit of extra work – saving Pins is a two-step process, where as clicking the like button before could be done in a fraction of a second.
However, what you lose in convenience you make up for in features.
By utilizing secret boards instead of a like list, you can further categorize your likes without having to share them with other people. Additionally, if you do want to share a likes board with a specific person (such as a spouse or a close friend), you’re able to do that as well.
This ultimately makes secret boards a lot more versatile than likes, which may be part of the reason that Pinterest decided to get rid of the like button in the first place.
Of course, if you just want one giant list of your liked Pins, creating just a single board is perfectly fine as well.
Does Pinterest Still Have The “Likes” Tab?
No. The Pinterest likes tab has been removed completely, along with the button.
The only way to access your previous likes is to visit the ‘Your Pinterest Likes” board on your profile after signing in.
All future likes must be saved to their own board in order to have the same functionality that the likes tab used to.
Unfortunately, Pinterest removed the like feature back in 2017.
However, all of your previously liked Pins will still show up if you visit the ‘Your Pinterest Likes’ board on your profile. Additionally, you can continue to save new Pins that you like there as well, and it will function just like the like button used to!
