The new article Rich Pin format showcases the author of the pin, the publication where it was published, the title, and a brief excerpt from the article.  Currently the new article Rich Pins are being used by The Huffington Post, New York Times, and many more.

Like the previous types of Rich Pins the implementation is basically the same, using either oEmbed or semantic markup. Implementing the Rich Pins maybe a bit on the technical side for some users, so enlisting the aid of a trusted developer may be the best option.  If you dislike the Rich Pins and don't want them on your site, or don't want it used on certain pages, you also have the option to opt out of them.
