Pinterest adds ability to search your own pins

The social network includes a "Just my pins" filter for the site's search function.

Pinterest is rolling out a new search feature that will let users search through their own pins, the company said Tuesday.

The image-centric social-media site says the feature will come in handy when looking up recipes for dinner or crafts for weekend projects. According to a blog post from Pinterest Software Engineer Hui Xu:

When you type a word into the search bar -- like San Francisco, beaches, or BBQ -- you can filter results by clicking "Just my pins." We'll show you everything you've pinned with that keyword in the pin description. Be sure to add words in your descriptions that will help you find that pin again.

Pinterest is still rolling the feature out on the Web and plans to add it to mobile soon.
