Pinterest’s co-founder and CEO Ben Silbermann made quite a few announcements at the SXSW today. Hot news is that, apart from getting profile redesigns, users will now also be able to pin videos. Moreover, an iPad app is expected to come soon.

According to the tech news site Mashable, Silbermann said that the virtual pinboard’s redesigned profiles pages will be released this week and they will be beautiful.

“I’m so excited about it,” Silbermann said during a SXSW conference today. “We wanted to make it more beautiful…to make your profile different in kind than the profile you have on Facebook.”

The redesign will display people’s influencers more prominently and the ability to find other like-minded users will become easier, reports Mashable. Additionally, Silbermann said users will be able to pin video from Vimeo, Hulu, Netflix, and more.

As for the iPad app, Silbermann would not give a specific release date but did confirm it is in the works. So far the only Pinterest app out there is for iPhones.
