  1. The lack of navigation buttons might be deliberate, Pinterest isn’t linear so they might not want to add linear navigation. I see why you are making this recommendation, but non-linear navigation seems to be one of the reasons they are seen as unique. I would want something like a ghostlike view of the board around the image to navigate to other images nearby.

    1. I can’t see how this Pinterest UX solution would inhibit any navigation, but add the valuable ability to follow a pinboard all the way through. #pinterest #socialmedia

      1. I see it more as, it wouldn’t inhibit navigation but it would change the navigation style. To me, what is really attractive about the pin boards is the way the images are not linearly lined up like a typical online photo album. It’s just a thought that they may be deliberately not adding Right/Left buttons because the images may not be intended to be viewed as 1/2/3 or Right/Left. That is my guess, no doubt your suggestion saves clicks though.

        1. What I am saying is, there is no advantage to requiring the Pinterest user to return over and over to the main page, unless they are selling impressions.
