eBay new layout: Pinterest-Like website for content curation

eBay got a new site redesign.  They added new features towards content curation. The change is very important and will modify the user experience (better) adding new ways to curate shopping experience.

This is an excerpt of what they claim:

“Today we begin to introduce a series of significant new features and enhancements for our customers. We’re delivering a cleaner, contemporary look and feel; a more intuitive, convenient way to browse, decide and buy – both globally and locally; and a new personal way to curate your own shopping experience and discover items perfect for you. These new experiences will be rolled live in the coming weeks in the US and around the world in the coming months. Additionally, our new logo goes live today. Together, these changes and more reflect the new eBay and our evolution as a marketplace that connects the world to the things they need and love—anytime, anywhere.”

Here you can see the new look. As you can notice the graphic changed and it’s now very similar to Pinterest:

The feed will show a collection of items selected for you based on your shopping history or personal interests. After you login you can follow items (like twitter):

If you click on any item a lightbox will appear presenting all the detailed information about the product. They also changed the logo to a new one:
