How Do I Set Up Pinterest Secret Boards?

This morning, an e-mail was sent to all Pinterest users, announcing secret boards. It seems interesting, and perhaps a move to be more brand friendly so that brands could work in private on the boards they want to expose, and actually strategize. It's worth playing around with, so, how do you get some secret boards of your own?

How Do I Turn On Secret Boards?

Pinterest is currently enabling 3 secret boards per user. To turn yours on, follow these easy steps!

Step 1: Click on "Add" in the top right.

  

Step 2: Click Create A Board

Step 3: Turn secret "on"

When you are ready to make it public...

Step 1: Click Edit at the top of your Secret Board

 Step 2: Turn secret setting to "off" and save settings

 That's it! The board is now public.

What About Secret Repins?

If you "Repin" to a secret board, does the original pinner get notified? It would make sense that they wouldn't until the board was public.... If anyone has any information on that I'd love to add it to this post!
