Small feature I am unhappy with
Don't get me wrong, Pinterest is wonderful and one of my favorite apps. I use it all the time, everyday, for anything and everything. However there’s one feature I am a bit irritated by. You can’t post videos without a business account. I personally don’t have a business, but I would still like to post some videos or edits or whatever I want to on this app. I love how you are free to post photos, me and my friend both love to sketch and draw them share our art across the Pinterest platform. But I also love to make some edits and videos about book characters or tv shows and stuff, and it irritates me when I get reminded I may not post videos just because I do not have a business account. Many people have guides on how to turn your account into a business account or how to create a business account in the first place. But for some reason, it’s not giving me the option to convert my account into a business account like it is to others. But I very much do not want to make a new account because I have had Pinterest for so long now I would want to post videos on my actual everyday account. Not some other account I rarely use. So lesson of this review, if your gonna get Pinterest and think you might want to post videos today or some day, make a business account.

Having an Irritating Issue
I have use Pinterest for a while now. And I recently started having this problem, and by recently I mean today. I came here to look and see if anyone else was having this problem and I saw a lot of reviews discussing other various issues many others are facing. I am myself and having a unique one and I haven’t found a review on it yet, so I decided to write one. I have not yet found out how to fix it and it’s really irritating. Basically whenever I click on a pin, whether it’s when I’m looking to save it or when I’m just going to have a closer look it only brings up a page titled “More Like This” and the pin I was looking for is nowhere to be seen so I can’t take a closer look or even just see like who made it or who posted it. it’s really annoying as a writer I like looking at the smaller details and making sure that I can see everything that’s going on and just being able to collect my ideas, this is really agitating. The only way for me to even save the pin is to press down and hold on it but then when I go to my account to look at it, it’s still pops up the “More Like This page”. On all my boards, all my pins, and even one I don’t have saved. I’ve tried closing out my apps, I’ve tried shutting down my device but nothings working. This needs to be fixed and looking at the amount of other problems people have been talking about, something’s really wrong . Please fix this.

1 month ago, What do I make it??
Wish I could save videos
It’s an amazing app for entertainment and it has everything. If you look something up you’ll easily find it. I love how I can save photos to my phone but it would be great if I could save videos because some of my friends and family don’t have Pinterest and if I want to send them a video of if there I can’t. If they don’t want Pinterest they shouldn’t be forced to download it just to watch a video. If you could make it so we can save videos too that would be great. Overall it’s an amazing app and I definitely recommend it if you need some source of entertainment or if you want to look something up it’s easy to find on there. I find absolutely everything on here and I think you will too. If you need ideas or are bored Pinterest has it. Personally it’s way better than Tik Tok with the environment. I’ve had the app for a good while now and all the time I have seen barely any people fighting in the chat and if your scared that people are going to talk bad about your post you can turn the comments off which is amazing. I hope you try it out I think it’s a good app for everyone all though there is one more thing. I think Pinterest needs to check their ads. A lot of the ads I get are inappropriate or they make me feel very uncomfortable. The ads are WAY worse than the actual post people make. I don’t think they should have ads like that on there. Anyone shouldn’t see stuff like that.

Love the app, but not some of the updates
I’ve had this app, and an account, for 8-10 years, and it’s one of my favorite apps! What I love is: -There are tons of pins, covering vast topics, ideas, images, etc. -The boards are pretty easy to search -I can go into my profile, type in some general words, and find what I’m looking for nearly every time. What I don’t like is: -The app refreshes if you leave it to look at something (unless you have one pin up on your screen, then it mostly won’t refresh, except when it’s been too long), which causes you to lose the pin(s) you were looking at (I recall looking at a pin for a door that was flat, round (think a Hobbit-type door, but glass, not wood), and had panels of stained glass that rotated around the circle/away from the lock on the door when you cranked the door handle in order to open said door, and I can’t find it anywhere. I have tried to look and am out of ideas for how to search for it) -When you go to save a pin, the top 3 boards that come up are the most recent ones you’ve pinned to (it used to be that the app anticipated the top 1-3 boards most relevant to the pin you’re trying to pin in that moment) -I have a Screenshot board (that was something added by the app, as an automatic way to save pins when you screenshot them), and now the app doesn’t do it anymore, so I now have to go through all those pins and sort them into their relevant boards

Freezing, Glitching, & Too many Ads
Please fix the glitching and freezing. I tap on a pin to view and it freezes. I would also like it if I don’t see so many ads—it’s more than just every other pin sometimes. Also I will delete a board and then if I try to recreate/remake another board just like the one I deleted I get a message saying, “you cannot make a board with this title because you just recently deleted a board with the same name.” So I just add an extra letter somewhere in the spelling to sort of fix the problem but at the same time this does not completely fix it. Another glitch on one of my boards I don’t have the more ideas option for some reason. Also I had my screen to go almost completely black while I was looking through some pins and I didn’t know why it went black. All I was doing was viewing a pin and the screen went black. This concerned me because I thought my phone was shutting down but as I said it went almost completely black and all I saw was the save button. Also, I have at least two boards that are private and now they continue to show all pins even though I have had them on private for months—the new private boards I make also don’t actually end up being private. Lastly, I go to view my followers and the ones I follow and sometimes it won’t let me scroll to the bottom of the list. I would appreciate if these problems could be fixed and everything starts to work more smoothly.

Love the app, hate the updates
I love Pinterest but if you’re going to update the app and give me options of things to do, don’t take it away! I used to be able to like pins if I didn’t have a board to put it in. I can “react” to certain pictures but I can only use one reactions option and it’s not for all pins. So now I have a bunch of pointless boards so I can still see things that I like. I loved having the option of sections in boards because if I have a “house work” board I can do a section with the bathroom, the bedroom, the living room, etc. It was a while since I updated and when I finally did, I wish I hadn't. I went to create sections for my travel board based on places to make it easier to plan my own trips and I can’t! I’m actually mad about this. And something that isn’t really a major issue but kinda disappointing is that when I come across a pin that I like and want to see more of, I tap on it. But sometimes it’s just an add and it takes me to a website. Which I guess I can see more by going through the website but I can usually access the website if I voluntarily tap on the picture after getting a preview. This is also the only app that closes out on me. I know it’s a free app and it takes a while to give the app its full potential but this isn’t really a new app anymore. Keep updates!!! When you bring in a new feature, don’t take it away from us! Some of us are (more like were) using those

I love the app but I can’t stand the updates
Ive been using Pinterest for about 6 years (off and on). Back when I first started using it me and my mom would find birthday party ideas and things like that but as Ive grown I continued to use it to feed into my current interests. I have been using it to find references for my fan art drawings and used to be able to comment under the pin with photos and videos and share what I created using the pin. It was one of my favorite features of the app and as a teenager that doesn’t use any other social media, I’m disappointed in the numerous updates that have taken away the actual fun out of the app. This is an issue because the app is about inspiration and using other people’s ideas to better your own. But if you can’t show how the idea actually turned out then your less likely to try it. Therefore leading to boredom of the app. I’m not sure the reason this feature was taken away but I do know that it was a big mistake. I hope they put it back in the next update and maybe the A-Z sorter for pins would be nice too? Like how many things are they going to take away- well anyways Pinterest is a great app for sharing your ideas and your creations and if you enjoy that kind of stuff try it that’s why I gave 4 stars. But to Pinterest please stop taking features away so you can add others it gets frustrating when you like something and it’s snatched away from you for no reason.

Returned and hope for a return
Thank you for adding back pins section Thank you for adding a choice on auto replay on vids Thank you for blocking porn/spam followers Thank you for stopping the bullying through comment filters Thank you for limiting story pins my feed is now clear of them unless I was to look for them Thank you for giving options in searches Explore/shop/profile this helps a great deal in bypassing shop I personally don’t have any issues with ads because I don’t hit on them and I turn auto play off on vids so I never hear them Anyone can do this What I would still hope for a comeback is board searches not just profiles/pins finding just boards was so exciting for me quick and simple I didn’t have to search through people’s profile to see if they had anything worth following and some have a great deal of boards I also still hope for a comeback is each pin tells you how many times that pin has been saved by the public it let me know that that pin has a link and can be saved and not blocked I also would hope for a comeback is each pin tells me a person that pinned it so I can be excited about there idea and check that board they saved it too :) Everything else is going well loyal pinner since august 2012

Love pinterest but i have a BIG problem
I love scrolling on pinterest for hours and getting inspiration for my pins. I always look forward to seeing how my account grows and being able to share pictures with others. Although, recently I have developed an issue. My account is completely gone as if it wasn’t an account to begin with. I am still logged in and can post pins & save others pins to my boards BUT when I look at my following list and click on a account that I knew followed me back, my account is no where to be found. As you know it’ll say “That’s you!” but for me my account is nowhere in the list. My views on my pins have also lowered drastically. I also get notifications of people saving my pins but once I click on my updates page it isn’t showing up. I haven’t gotten a update for almost a week now. I have emailed pinterest twice already and they are doing the best they can but I wanted to post this review to see if anyone else had this sort of problem. To add to this, I did have one of my pins say “copyrighted” so it went against community guidelines but that was after everything started to happen. I hope this goes away soon because I truly do love spending my time on this app and like I said really look forward to seeing my account grow. My account is glcrygirl and i’m hoping that this issue only lasts for a few days.

I love this app but there are some annoying bugs
I’ve been using Pinterest for a while now and I really enjoy it. I love looking at all the cool art people post and it’s so good for inspiration in any category. But-and I don’t know if this is happening to a lot of people or just me-my account is existing…but like it’s also not existing. What I mean is I can see my account directly but when I click on my followers button nothing shows up even though i know I have followers. And whenever I click on my following button they all show up (except specifically my four friends who I’m following for some weird reason) but when I click on their followers, I’m not there. I know they wouldn’t unfollow me because it all happened at the same time one day randomly (and I know some of them anyway). Also, sometimes I get logged out for some reason, and it’s pretty annoying. One more thing: I recently decided to rearrange most of my pins into new boards, but I have a lot of pins, so it’s getting a little glitchy. Sometimes when I move a big amount of pins to my new board, they’ll appear on the new board, but they’re still on the board the were originally on apparently?? Also one of my mini boards is empty, and it says I have 113 pins left in it, but nothing is showing up. It’s weird. Overall, this app is great, but pls fix these bugs, thanks.

Unfixed issues
So I have had the Pinterest app for about four or five years. For a while everything was good, everything worked and I didn’t have many problems. However, recently a problem has popped up that seems unable to be fixed. I am unable to follow anybody, I can unfollow people but for some reason when I go into somebody’s profile and hit the follow button it lights up and tells me that I am unable to follow the person. But when I hit the back button and go back in I am not following them anymore. Contacting Pinterest support proved to be a hassle as I either got a bit or a supposedly real person that was talking about issues on my pins that had nothing to do with the original problem at all. I even tried all the tips given, deleting app cache didn’t work, unfollowing pins and boards did not work and uninstalling and then reinstalling the app did not work. I was honestly about to just give up when I finally got a real person and they said that they were working on it and that it would take a while. I have not heard anything back since and even after multiple app updates the problem is still there. So yes Pinterest has a ton of pins and stuff but when you encounter an actual problem it is almost not worth it to try and contact support because either you get an unhelpful bot that gives you tips you already did. Very rarely do you get somebody real, it took me ten tries to get a real person

This used to be my favorite app!
Like the title says, I absolutely loved the old Pinterest. The update last year maybe made it a whole lot harder to navigate. I was accustomed to searching for boards so that I could easily follow other people who shared my very specific interests, but now that option has been gone for months! I’ve been meaning to write this review since then, but this newest update from a few days ago expedited it. Another of my main issues is the shopping aspect. In the older versions, it was more geared to crafting/diy/budget ideas. Now, I search for something simple like knitting ideas, and all I get back are shopping suggestions and priced items for sale. And there’s even a shopping section! I understand the need to evolve and bring in new demographics, but I feel that a lot of Pinterest’s original draw and identity has disappeared. Now, it behaves more like an Instagram or Facebook feed, filled with advertisements and shopping. It’s very disappointing to me that Pinterest has become so much like all the other dime-a-dozen social media apps and sites, since I initially fell in love with it years before because it avoided that world I hated. It felt quiet, calm, secluded, like a library or a yarn store, and I could do my own thing with topics I loved across the “board.” I am really, really bummed about all the changes and am considering deleting, which would be a major change. Please, please bring back some of the original features!

Love Pinterest, not the updates
I’m an avid “pinner.” I spend time on the app each day and love to go over all of my pins. I visit it for pretty much anything I want to do. One of the few updates I’ve really liked has been the notes feature. I’ve enjoyed being able to plan on the things I’m saving pins for while in the boards. It’s been nice having the ability to do all of this work on the Pinterest app instead of having to switch to another platform to organize my thoughts. However, when I opened the app today, I was notified that I had just 2 days to screenshot my notes before they/the feature would be deleted. First, this is very short notice for those that don’t use the app everyday (I did not get a similar message when pinning yesterday). Second, I cannot see the issue with having a notes feature. If users don’t wish to engage this feature, it’s easy to ignore. I don’t use notes for all of my boards, but I’m certainly not bothered by the ability to do so. The only potential issue I could maybe see is that the design of the space for the notes button takes up too much space, but it fits just fine next to the more ideas and organize buttons. If this is the issue, create a small design or a drop down menu (though this is less accessible), but please restore/keep this feature!

Love the app, but it is not perfect AT ALL ...
LOOK i love pinterest, i started using this app regularly in 2020 but dear GOD are there a lot of flaws. A main one that a lot of ppl seem to agree on is the amount of ads... look pinterest we get it y'all have to eat to but there's A LOT of ads, and they overshadow the actual pins since there's so many of em!! Another issue i've had is how i can't customize which boards i wanna see in my home screen.. it's always up to the app to decide which boards will appear in my homescreen. Sometimes it will let me actually click done and it still doesn't appear!! I don't even have the option to remove boards from the homescreen it's rlly annoying ...(idk if this is a glitch on my acc or if it's pinterest doing this). Another MASSIVE issue for me is when the home screen refreshes even though i don't swipe down?? I've lost so many great pins bcuz of this option please remove it.... make it like other social medias where the home screen doesn't refresh unless u swipe down... Also according to others in the reviews, there used to be an option to search up boards by names... whyd u remove it?? that is such a great option?? Also plz let us report people for other things that aren't spam for the love of god.... There are a lot of pretty good updates like the sections update, picking ur board cover update and more, but the flaws are really annoying...

amazing until recently…
i’ve been using pinterest for so long and i spend so much time on pinterest so it’s kinda frustrating because this has never happened before. i upload/post things on my pinterest feed and i never get notifs when someone comments on my stuff so whenever i look randomly that’s when i find them. yesterday i was scrolling through my posts and i noticed i had some comments so i went to go like them and the “liked by creator” never showed up like it usually does. i thought nothing of it and tried highlighting the comment and a message came up on my screen saying “something went wrong on our end. sorry about that.” i replied to the comment and when that person responded to me, i tapped on the notif and it brought up MY post but had a DIFFERENT user name on it when it was MINE. and now whenever i look at what’s supposed to be MY comments, OTHER creators comments show up but again, with MY pictures that i upload. I’ve logged out, deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still continues to do this. i recently uploaded something and when someone commented, i liked their message and the “liked by creator” showed up but it still won’t for my older posts. i tried ignoring it but it’s really frustrating and i hope pinterest fixes this soon. i really don’t want to delete everything and re-upload it or delete my account entirely.

Pinterest is the jack of all trades
So I love love Pinterest and I always have!! But I recently got the iPhone 10 max and now it just constantly freezes up when I’m on Pinterest for a while and my phone doesn’t do this on ANY other app or any other time. So I have no idea why it keeps doing this... but it is pretty aggravating. Other than that though this app is the GREATEST!! I come here for- it used to be just for like crafts and food, but now I have come to use it for makeup ideas, for like if I have a khaki jacket and I want to see what other looks and styles and colors may go with it (that matches what I may have in my closet) I go on here for an idea of what the possibilities are to wear with it. I recently used it to find out what kinds of dresses and outfits to wear to a Christmas party.. so you can get ideas and picture yourself in the clothes, you can have a idea of what you’re looking for locally. And of course this is where I go for beautiful quotes to add on Instagram. Or funny memes even to describe super specific situations 😂 you can use Pinterest to find basically anything! Gift ideas, crafts, DIY, recipes, home decor ideas, outfit ideas, makeup tutorials, if you want a hair cut and you are looking for different styles... like you name it and they have it! Oh yea and Starbucks drinks to try!! That’s my favorite!

Long time user
I’ve been a regular pinterest user for almost a decade now. I rarely have a day where I don’t check my Pinterest. I mainly use it to curate aesthetics and find inspiration for my life. It’s very soothing and artistic to me, and the only social media I’ll use. However, I feel as though Pinterest has recently gone down hill. There’s an overwhelming amount of ads. To the point of every other pin is an ad. Most of them are irrelevant to me and my feed is no longer aesthetically pleasing, just full of junk. And I’m not opposed to tasteful ads- I’ve even bought multiple products advertised to me on Pinterest that had beautiful ads that matched my interest and weren’t overwhelming. But there’s just too many now and too many pointless ones. It makes Pinterest significantly less enjoyable. I also don’t understand why Pinterest no longer shows you who pinned the pins in your feed, and when you click in you can’t click on the original user who pinned. It’s totally confusing and counterintuitive- I keep trying to click the icons of people to view their profile but I can’t. The best way for me to do it is to scroll through the hundreds of people I follow to find them. It’s a huge pain. Please make peoples profiles clickable from their pins like they used to be. I’m satisfied with most of the other features of this app and glad to be a part of the community!

I forgot something in my last review
More often than not, when I scroll down a from a post now to find similar items, I don’t, instead I find posts similar to another completely different board that I have, or just something I would never save all together. I thought the idea of scrolling down was to find similar pins as it used to be, I guess that’s wrong now?? And one more thing! Why does Pinterest keep deactivating pins! Almost everyday for the last year Iv had Pinterest send an email stating they have deactivated one of my pins for violent or inappropriate behavior. I always submit an appeal and you know why? Most of what I save is art and or photography. I don’t save any nudes or violent acts, so I kept wondering why my pins were getting deactivated so I started trying to use the “one time link” which btw doesn’t show you pin if your on an app on your phone. Either way I would get some idea of what pin was being deactivated and look out for it once it was released again. When I found out MOST OF THE TIME IT WAS A WOMAN SHOWING A FREAKING SHOULDER?! Or a LEG. This is getting out of control! I get that Pinterest wants to keep young children away from inappropriate things, but a woman showing skin is not inappropriate ( I’m a woman btw). I also save items for book fandoms and Iv had so so many of those pins get deactivated, but like why? Bc a guy has his shirt off? Bc a woman is in a bathing suit??? I’m saving anything involving sex over here?

Tired of my home feed refreshing all the time
I’ve never made a review before because I didn’t care enough to before. But I have so much dedication to Pinterest, my issues with the updates have begun affecting my attitude for the app. I’ve been on Pinterest for probably a decade and no update has me more upset than the constant refreshing of the home page. I use all the platforms so I know that if you change from the home feed to your profile or to the search tab back to the home feed, the home feed automatically refreshes... when I even open the app sometimes I see a pin right away that I’d pin but for some reason it refreshes!! This is so irritating. Please fix this to wear it only updates the Home Screen if you pull down the feed from the top for a second. Like Twitter. You can’t even scroll through the feed sometimes without it randomly updating. Also the ads Pinterest.. come on. They’re every third pin! I get you have to pay the bills but more often than not your ads are irrelevant to my search. Speaking of searching, why is it that when I search one thing my home feed will suddenly be filled with that one search? I didn’t follow the topic, I didn’t follow a new board, I don’t care to see it on the home feed I have sort of curated myself. This has been a lot of complaints and my rating is low so that you get how irritated I am. But any other time you’d get a 5/5. I love you Pinterest, rarely change.

Best thing ever
Thanks to Pinterest I can express myself throughout creativity and just art boards and just all these boards that I can make and I can express myself through them I think my favorite two boards is probably my Jesus Christ one and my photography because those are two really important things in my life and this is a really great app for all ages and I do recommend it to anyone who is eligible to have it. And I first got it when I was about 11 and I just got an iPod not a phone but my parents wouldn’t let me have any kind of social media so this was kind of like a social media for me and I very much enjoyed it you can fine inappropriate things on there if you search them up I have never search them up but if you click on the wrong link or something it could lead to something so just be mindful when you have your kids on there it will ask you of like things that you’re interested in just make sure that you are looking over that because there are things on there that maybe you should look over with them other than that it’s an excellent app and in less you’re truly searching for something or you just click the wrong link you won’t find anything bad and I truly absolutely for the very last time do you recommend it to all thanks!

Explain?? someone??????
Imagine your system being THIS bad that I literally have to try and contact you guys through here to re-activate my account that had been suspended with no good reason. I’ve tried, tried, and tried, to gain access to my account for atleast 2 days, trying to repeal “my violations of hateful activity”. WHAT😭 All I’ve had on my account was silly screencaps and memes. Why are my pins STILL up even when you suspect my posts were being hateful? Isn’t that the whole reason for suspending my account? Because of my pins?? Before banning my account, you’ve given me a warning for one of my pins being “inappropriate” but later had reinstated it. Why even bother taking it off in the first place? Not to mention giving ME a warning for pins I saved because they somehow contained things that had gone against your guys’ policies. Why am I being punished for saving them when I’m not the one who created them? If you see a post that supposedly goes against your community guidelines, take action and don’t let it linger. People will assume that the image or video is appropriate for the website, BECAUSE IT WAS POSTED AND ALLOWED. but suddenly, they get warnings because they saved it? I’m sorry, I love this app, but it’s really frustrating when you’re banning innocent accounts when there is actual gross pins that have broken every single one of your guidelines, and they’re scot free. I suggest not relying on ai if that’s what’s causing this

Great app but…
I love Pinterest so much I used to use it everyday until I got deactivated about 2 weeks ago. I emailed them twice and they said they would review my account but 2 weeks just passed so I emailed them again just now. Come to find out, other people are also getting there account deactivated for no reason or for the wrong reason. Also having to spam the life outta Pinterest just to get their attention to get their account back; because for some reason Pinterest just ignores you in this dire situation. I myself got mine deactivated for NO REASON at least it wasn’t explained why it got deactivated. It’s extremely wild that this is happening and Pinterest are just ignoring people who are trying to get their attention to get their account back. I know it might seem like me and other people are overreacting but Pinterest is truly such a fun app, and having that taken away for no reason is so frustrating. This shouldn’t be happening and it should never happen. I know it could be a mistake by bot reviewers but bot reviewers should not be able to deactivate or suspend accounts. Bot reviewers should only be able to report their triggers to a human reviewer and let that human reviewer decide what’s actually happening. Overall this app is amazing but this is the only thing that vexes me, truly. (Sorry if there were any grammatical errors I’m kinda stressed out from this.)

Have I reached the end of Pinterest?
I think I've reached the end of Pinterest! I keep seeing the same content over and over again. I only follow around 3000 people's Ms follow more every week. I have 9000 followers--which my number of followers slowed down significantly when they changed the feeds and algorithms. I can no longer see the people who follow me--even though my number of followers go up, it's no longer adding profiles to the followers section. I am so sick of seeing advertisements and sponsored content that have NOTHING to do with anything that I would ever want to see from Home Depot (I think we all kinda know about Home Depot at this point) to Pantene hair commercials. The settings for automatic video play do not work. And dare I use the "show me more like this button"; CLEARLY Pinterest's taste level has a bug since it usually looks NOTHING like what I've just pinned. I preferred the only method of see who else has pinned this pinned so that you could start following others with your same taste level and subject matter. Pinterest has become almost as bad as Houzz for the masses and has become very hard to curate sophisticated collections of idea boards. I use Pinterest to work with my clients and promote my business. There are very few settings that you can change and I am so tired of seeing the same content over and over again! Oh wait, I already said that--well now you know how it feels!

I love it but.... some stuff has to change.
I used to love Pinterest. As a baker and writer I loved looking through so many recipes and and different posts. I still love the format and everything about the app. But I have tried to post my opinions in the comments, no bad language or anything and Pinterest won’t let me. People are constantly swearing and typing inappropriate stuff but I can’t post my own opinions. I will keep Pinterest because of my hobbies, but it if uncalled for to not allow someone to post something they want or believe in. People are constantly voicing their own opinions but I can’t. It is not up to you to tell me what I can and can’t say, I understand that it is not totally designed for voicing your opinions but if you have a comment section, allow people to say what they want. Just fix the problem more social media platforms are falling into, you can’t stifle everyones voice, it’s not right. Pinterest is an amazing app for anything else, bakers, crafters, and writers or anyone else with hobbies should really enjoy the app. Thank you Pinterest for fueling my imagination and crafting, for years and hopefully more years to come. Just fix the one issue and it will be a five star app, and Pinterest will be unique from everywhere else people go for crafts and posts and whatever hobbies they are into.

It’s getting worse
So I’ve been having issues with product’s constantly pushed in my face with every single art piece that pops up but whatever I will live until I figure out how to fix that or it get updated out. I’ve run into a major problem for me. I can’t share my account and it is basically in forced ghost mode because of the new age policy and what not. I was trying to make a colab bored with a friend and every time she tried to join it would say it didn’t exist. I tried to fix it with no luck and I then went maybe my birthday is wrong and that’s causing me problems so I go and have a look. It says a day in May of 2008. My birthday isn’t in May and sure as heck isn't 2008 I’m older than that. My birthday had been set when I made the account a year or two ago and had been correct but guess what dear old Pintrist goes and does that reset my birthday and now want me to show them legal documents to fix it. I’m not showing random people my legal information like my birth certificate just to fix the age that they reset. I’m running into constant problems and it’s really sad because I love this app but can no longer use it as easily as before. Sorry for my long rant just wanted to share my thoughts on the new policy and how it is causing me more harm than good. TLDR: Pinterest wants to see a birth certificate to fix the issue with my age they caused.

Pinterest user since 2011
I can’t imagine not having Pinterest. I could be without all other websites and social media, but the creative side of me needs my Pinterest fix. I’m able to organize all of my ideas which is great for me because my mind runs 90mph with these ideas every day either way. I love my secret boards. I love trying new things. This year I have a new raised garden bed and redoing my front yard. One of my favorite things about it is that I can make Pinterest my MAIN Wishlist/Registry I don’t have to make a bunch of different registries for events... I can add people to a board and pin things from ANY website. So I don’t have to remember all those passwords for those individual sites. (Example: You’re having a baby and want to have a Target Registry, Babies R Us Registry, Buy Buy Baby Registry, etc etc...) Instead of doing them all separately you can just pin all the products you want from those websites directly to ONE BOARD on Pinterest. You can add your friends and family to the board or you can just send them your board link. They can follow the link and look at everything you’ve pinned in one place and make a purchase. You don’t need to create registries anymore. Everything I need is available on Pinterest. Thanks y’all!

Driving away your users
The new policies and using ai to monitor the platform is causing so many people to either lose their accounts from faulty reports or consider leaving Pinterest entirely. The new CEO wants it to be a shopping site which isn’t even the reason why Pinterest grew so popular in the first place, and now there’s an insane amount of scammy ads which just makes it difficult to use. You don’t have to be experienced in marketing to understand that frustrating and ignoring the needs of your audience is actually gonna cause you to lose money as a company, because people will just end up deactivating their accounts if they haven’t been auto-banned already. Just from taking a few minutes to read through the r/pinterest subreddit I found so many people who are struggling with the exact same things I am. And I mean HUNDREDS of people talking about how completely normal, safe, appropriate pins they’ve saved have been removed because, guess what, ai can’t correctly or accurately tell the difference between normal/sfw and explicit/harmful content. Not that the CEO cares though since he’s been deleting people’s comments with complaints on Twitter. If things don’t change for the better, chances are Pinterest will lose a lot of users and therefore lose revenue from getting too greedy, which I’d hate to see because I used to love the platform. Stop relying on tech bros and ai systems and start actually caring about the people who support you as a company.

Please stop changing things
I’ve loved the Pinterest app for years, but I’m so tired of the updates ans redesigns. This used to be such an accessible platform for people of all ages and backgrounds, and now it feels like you guys are just pandering to young people (and I say this as someone in her 20s). My feed and searches are littered with stolen TikToks which is just annoying. I like seeing SOME TikToks and other short-form clips mixed in with more traditional posts, but now it’s like 90% of what I’m seeing on my dashboard. Sometimes I search for things and get literally nothing but TikToks, other times I don’t get any, and it just seems like a half-baked pointless algorithm. Can’t we just go on TikTok if we want to look at TikToks? Then there’s the features that keep disappearing even though we were all using them. You took away the option to like pins, and now we can’t post pictures of our tries? I loved that feature. In fact it was one of my favorite parts of using Pinterest, getting to share how things turned out and see how other people did. Why take that away?? And the ADS. By golly it feels like I can’t scroll down an inch without getting an ad. Is anyone reading these reviews? I feel like we’re all saying the same things and nothing ever changes. I miss the old Pinterest. It was better, and I feel confident in saying that because it’s being echoed all around me. Please listen to your user base!

Am addicted to this app, but was better before
I love this app and I am honestly on it way to much😅However, I hate that they took away the tried section on pins. We can l No longer post picture or videos in the comments. In my opinion, that was one of the best features. I loved putting my art in there and getting advice and seeing others and giving advice. It’s also fun to see people try singing videos and such. I wasn’t allowed to post and a lot of people are the same way, so that’s a way to share that isn’t actually posting. I understand what issues can occur, such as bad or inappropriate photos, but you can’t really escape that. There’s a reason reporting comments is a thing. Another thing, the home feed is always refreshing without me wanting it to. I will see a pin that looks really interesting and go to tap it but it will refresh randomly without me even swiping down and I lose it forever. Very frustrating. Other than that, I love this app. Edit: each update brings more issues lol. Not the report/edit/delete button on comments is gone. And I keep finding profiles of pedophiles and I try to report but the only option is for spam. I report anyways but I would like more options for reporting profiles like on comments. Still want picture comments back

It’s a great app but please stop taking away features!
I’ve used the app for years, and it’s great, but PLEASE stop taking away features. Where you can “try” pins or comment with a photo has been removed, and it’s annoying. One of the original things from Pinterest were that you could “try” things in the comments. Or even just put a specific reaction picture. Seeing people try and recreate crafts and projects or funny reaction pictures feels like it was the point of the comment sections- to discuss the pin. Long story short it’s a feature that shouldn’t have been removed. Aside from that, the updates to the comment sections as a whole haven’t been my favorite. The new “react” feature seems a bit pointless; in the past you could like a comment and it was simple. There was a number of people that liked it and a heart lit up when you liked it. The new feature not only shows other people’s reaction in color- it only changes to “loved” or “helpful” in a dull color, which makes it really hard for people with poor eyesight, dyslexia, etc to discern which comments they have reacted to (since they are already in color) The helpful option as opposed to the loved option makes sense, but it seems more trouble that it’s worth. In short, the lack of commenting with pictures and the reaction mechanics need work. Otherwise, it’s a great app.

No access to account after new update…
So I’ve had no problems with Pinterest EVER. Until a few days ago. I updated the app, went to open it, and a login screen appeared. That never usually happens, but I figured it was from the update. So yk I go to login, click enter, and it says my account has been deactivated. The screen says “Common reasons for getting your account deactivated include violating community guidelines, we noticed unusual activity on your account, or you requested an account closure.” I find this baffling because I haven’t violated anything- I am nothing but kind to others on the app when I do comment. Idk if one too many Taylor Swift pins is “unusual activity” or what???? And I never did request for an account closure. I went to the Pinterest Help website, entered my contact info and the problem. It said I’d receive an email to fix the situation and nothing so far. So I decided “Ok I guess I have to start over and make a new account.” So I tried making another account with a different email and it said I was “ineligible” to join at the time. So now I have zero access to Pinterest. If anyone from Pinterest sees this- PLEASE fix this. I’ve seen this recently happen to a LOT of ppl, and it’s probably from the new update. We just want our accounts back. Thanks for your time.

Love everything except the amount of ads
I love Pinterest so much! It is such a wonderful app that evokes creativity and it is such a positive social media platform. There are many cool features and I love how each person’s feed is now even more reactive to what you click on and view, leading to better recommendations for what should be viewed next. The one problem I have is there is a bucket load of ads! They seemed to have popped up out of nowhere one day and it is almost unbearable. Sometimes I will get so frustrated with the ads that I will stop using the app in that moment. My home feed is probably 40% recommended pins and 60% ads. If you want to swipe to look through pins, you will come across these ads that have a carousel of images within the ad so you have to swipe nearly six times before you can go back to looking at pins. It is really annoying how Pinterest used to be a nice, aesthetic, simple app but now you are bombarded with ads the moment you open the app. It was honestly really disappointing how there is an excessive amount of ads popping up when I just want to scroll through my home feed, but I keep getting ads for brands that don’t even relate to what I am remotely interested in or looking at. I love Pinterest, but I feel like they should fix this issue.

Devolving into every other socials app
Pinterest is such a gem of an app and has been for over a decade but as of late you can tell that they’re headed towards turning into just an other content recycling app like everything else. I love Pinterest because their algorithms GOT me and I’d see or be suggested stuff that I wouldn’t ever find anywhere else, whereas instagram would just show me the same thing a million times over. But now it feels like I’m just getting my instagram feed on Pinterest. My home feed will quickly turn into an amalgamation of the last few things I pinned or searches and not actual topics or boards that I follow anymore. Not to mention the ADS my god no app shows me more ads concurrently than Pinterest does and I HATE it. This morning I was scrolling and I had 5 different ads in a ROW it completely ruins the user experience and makes me just close out of the app instead cause why in gods name would I want to scroll through a feed where the ad to content ratio is 1:1 or sometimes even 2:1. It’s greedy. This app really did used to be one of the great creative resources of the internet and there still is so much that’s good about it but if every platform tries to turn into instagram or tik tok then eventually only one app is going to come out on top and I can promise you it’s not going to be Pinterest if they keep this up.

Bring back “Search By Board”!!
I’ve used Pinterest for years and love the ability to be able find ideas & inspiration! I mainly use the mobile version of Pinterest because of how smooth and effortless it is (along with the fact I’m always on my phone!) and I find that just searching for terms doesn’t yield varied results, so about 90% of my time I search things and select “view by board” to browse the collections other people have made! Being able to see other people’s “finds” or their own uploads is a perfect way to fill up my own boards. If I wanted to search for a certain aesthetic or look for certain types of recipes for example, how else would I find good boards to follow so that I can see their posts in my feed? However, when I last updated it, the feature that allowed us to search by board on mobile is gone!! I can’t even hit a picture and be able to trace it to the boards it shows up on. All the pins on my main feed I can’t even see where they came from. I expand my results not by hoping Pinterest’s own algorithms pick up what they think I want to see, but by what boards and pinners I follow!! Please bring this back! The fun of Pinterest is in cultivating all kinds of resources or pictures in one place, what good is that if I can’t even have the option to view the ones others have made?

ALL Ads & Algorithm. NO (real) friends
The Sponsored Pins are out of control. I see sponsored content more than I see my own friend’s post (and I mean face-to-face friends). On multiple occasions the sponsored posts have opened without any intentional interaction on my part; just from my scrolling through the app or when searching for something. But I have to put an effort just to see what an individual friend’s personal activity/recent pins. I feel like a creep. And now I’m getting told “Hire an interior designer from [sponsor]” when I’m just tryna look at a bookcase! That’s too far. I’ve been on Pinterest since it’s was invite only and now it’s overcrowded with multi-level marketing schemes and aggressive sponsored ads posing as real pins. I miss seeing my REAL life friend’s posts, not just what some AI algorithm thinks I want. And what’s up with the pop-up asking “did you find what you were looking for?”, why do you need an answer when I don’t even know what I was looking for? It’s just as uncomfortable as having a sales associate invading your personal space and following you around the store tryna make a sale sell when you’re just trying look around. That behavior is what keeps people from making a purchase or coming back again. Now I’m concerned with how my data is being used. Don’t pull a Facebook Pinterest, I’d hate to see you go down like them and lose the trust of your users.

Long-time user but hate some of the updates
I’ve loved Pinterest since a friend got me onto it, it’s perfect for my writing work and image references. I’ve stuck it out through the rough patches cause it’s just that handy. Small things here and there I can live with, but the most recent update has got things going pretty screwy and making it hard to use the mobile app. The most recent update took away the side-scrolling alphabet letter list on the board selection. I have A LOT of boards spread across TWO accounts, and I tend to move very fast when I get on a spree. And when I say a lot, I mean I’ve tapped out at the original board count before and i just keep going up! So you can imagine how time-consuming it is to have to manually scroll through Ever. Single. Board. to find the one I want to pin to. Please bring that back. Also, on the mobile app, the board selection tab while pinning is slippery AF. It’s so incredibly difficult to manually scroll cause the list keeps trying to slide itself closed at the bottom when I scroll up. If I’m trying to access boards not already in the top three selection, just throw the whole list open and keep it in place until the user closes it themselves, don’t let it go trying to close at it scrolls up or not open all the way when I’m trying to scroll down.

Can only tell tech support about listed problems
Pinterest is pretty good unless something isn't working right, but just try to tell them something is wrong if it doesn't happen to be one of the very few problems they've decided to list on their help page. Apparently, Pinterest thinks everything is perfect and any difficulties are user problems because the available options are only about how to use it right. There seems to be no email address, etc. to which to send problems that they don't want to hear about. Well, too bad. Here's a maddening problem: If you are viewing anything that has to do with Taste of Home recipes after a minute or so a T of H ad will appear on the left and a larger one on the right. Together these block out a significant part of the screen. (I'm using an iPad 2 Air with iPadOS 14.2). You can close the ad on the left by touching the X in the upper right hand corner and it goes away completely. However, the larger one on the right simply turns off the ad and leaves a big white rectangle where the ad used to be, which continues to obliterate the same amount of the page as the ad did. There's no way to get rid of the white box. This does appear to be a problem with the app since the ads don't even appear on the T of H web page. Drives me crazy...almost as crazy as not being able to find a way to report the problem!

Disappointed with moves away from original product
Pinterest continues to make more changes that move the app further and further away from why I use it: to find, save, and share ideas. I finally decided to write this review because the primary “+” button now isn’t for pins but for Instragram-like “stories”. Now you have to hunt to find the right “+” button under profile to add a pin from a website. Additionally, users no longer have control to edit the title and description of pins. Just notes to self or comments. I used to use this heavily for describing my modifications to recipes or notes on what I’d like to do on a particular project with my wife. The loss of control is frustrating. Lastly, Instagram’s approach to advertisements is anti-customer. I understand the need to monetize, but PLEASE don’t make the interaction so challenging that it “traps” your users in the ad. Two examples of this: 1) you can’t swipe down to dismiss an ad like you do any other pin - you have to reach up to the top-left of your screen and tap on the small back arrow, and 2) swiping up opens the ad instead of showing similar content - so then you have to tap “done” and the back arrow to get back to normal content. Instead, you should make the interaction/navigation similar to all other content. Your ads are “landmines” and I get so frustrated when I tap on one. Doesn’t have to be that way.

Why?! With the ads, no ad free version and now you change the saving options!
I have been so disappointed and frustrated by the ads, especially the video ads! First people who have visual problems there should be a way to at least turn off the motion of the ads, like an accessibility feature! Then before I even scroll down there are three ads a page if not more! I wish there was at least a paid version for people who really dislike the ads taking over Pinterest. This has almost put me over the edge with giving up on this app. Now worst of all you incorporate an unorganized button in the exact spot as the old save button... why?! The entire point of Pinterest is organizing a catalog of things you like. Why create a board that is unorganized and if it’s really for quick saves then MOVE THE BUTTONS! Leave the normal save button when you chose a board then hit save and switch the new “chose a board” button to the QUICK SAVE BUTTON! Don’t change the entire way to save pins based off of this new quick save feature!! Add a button and leave the original way to save untouched. Please at least create an option to turn off quick save option in settings!! Also a paid version for ad free or at very minimum an accessibility feature for vision impaired individuals for the movement of all the video ads!!! Please, please consider this or I’m unfortunately going to have to give up on Pinterest. Thanks for any consideration.

Great App, Unsolved Issue
I have used this app for a long time to love it, I used to use it for almost everything. You can find different things for it, like, clothing, food, hairstyles, nail inspo, shoe inspo, almost everything. But then I got this thing a while back about “Teen Safety” something about how your account is private if you’re under 16. Which, I understand, I understand the thing that if you’re a minor then of course, make the account private, but to deactivate a specific BOARD, is petty. It wasn’t used for anything bad, it was just for my friend and me to save random memes that we thought were funny. But then out of the normal Pinterest decided to make it non-accessible. I was shocked and honestly worried that it might lead to my whole account being deactivated, which I then decided to contact them about. And I haven’t been happy with the app since. I got pretty angry with it too. It happened to my friend’s account too. She couldn’t reach my new account or my old one. I wasn’t able to do the same either. It was a really random thing too, we haven’t done anything out of the community guidelines or terms and conditions, and we didn’t break any rules. Then Pinterest decides to do this, it was petty as heck. I didn’t understand it and I still don’t. If my issue isn’t fixed then it isn’t, but if it is then great. Thank you.

This app needs to fix safety issues for minors ASAP
Overall, this app is really great and I love Pinterest. While for a long time Pinterest was mainly for a certain crowd (almost all adults) sharing recipes, crafts, and similar, there’s been a wider variety of content including memes, fandom stuff, tiktoks, etc. which have a much younger crowd. This isn’t a problem in itself, especially since they don’t interact much due to the algorithms. However, some things about this concern me A LOT regarding the safety of kids. I see a lot of kids posting photos and videos of themselves in reaction to content and this has me scared for them. Not just teenagers, but CHILDREN. Really young children. Ive seen so many times kids giving out their age and location in the comments for everyone to see!!! This is dangerous and there isn’t any way to report this either!!! I understand that there is no way to completely prevent kids from being on this app, but there needs to be ways to prevent kids from posting information and photos and videos of themselves in the comments like they are. The ability to react to posts like this is great if it were just adults sharing recipes, but this NEEDS to be addressed. As someone who grew up on the internet unmoderated, I had to discover the hard way how creepy some people are. I was lucky to not have had anything major but I could easily see some creep pretending to be 14 or something and messaging these kids.

Just a couple things need fixing :)
I absolutely love Pinterest, I’ve used it for years. The only reason I’m giving it a 4 instead of 5 stars is that recently (meaning a few weeks ago) I realized I can no longer “try pins”. At first I just thought it was a little glitch but seeing as other people have updated the app and said the option is gone is kind of a bummer. I mean, Pinterest is an idea app and a diy place where you share your ideas and how they turned out with other people. How are you supposed to show how it turned out without the try pin? I’d love it if this feature came back. Another thing that disappointed me was that I saw another review saying the sections inside of boards were taken away? Of course, this review was left a year ago but still, I’ve been hesitant to even update my Pinterest in case this is still happening. I use sections inside all of my boards because sometimes I’ll have a board for my house but I section them off from bedroom, bathroom, etc. and it’d be really difficult to find what I’m looking for if that’s taken away. Anyways, I know I just went on and on about all the things I wish could be fixed but honestly it’s not that much and I really do love Pinterest, it’s my favorite app. :)

Suggestion to the app developers
I love this app for finding and organizing all sorts of crafts, recipes, home tips, etc. but it is really irritating to continuously have a bar popping up at the top of each webpage asking if I have found what I want. Most of the time I am pulling these sites from my own saved pins so yes, I have found what I wanted because that’s why I use your app, to find what I have saved here. That, and when I am choosing a pin from a search I notice that this question bar loads before the page even loads and takes up part of the page. At that point it’s just annoying to be asked if I found what I wanted because I can’t see the webpage yet and certainly don’t know what is within the page yet to know if I did indeed find what I wanted. Please consider altering how and when you ask your users if they found what they wanted. Maybe the pop-up could be altered to only pop up when a search from the home page is done. Also, maybe change it to pop up 30 seconds after the user clicks a link so they have a chance to see what is on the page before being asked for feedback. Overall, I still love your app and use it all the time. I just want to stop seeing this pop-up every time I open a link I’ve had saved for years. Thank you.

New update ruins people’s hard work
can no longer check out the videos my sister has created, nor can her followers, in fact we can’t even see the names of the profiles we’re following under 16! They barley exist! My sister has worked very hard on her content, taking over an hour to create a video from start to finish. This new update has taken away the joy of posting videos, people no longer being able to view her hard work and ideas. Even though she is set in business account, there is no point in having a business account when they too (under 16) are revealed with the same consequences. In all desperateness, we tried changing the age of her account to 16+, but in the settings she can no longer even change the age! What?! I am not only speaking from the voices of my sister and her friends, but the thousands of young content creators who no longer have a public profile and have no more motive for Pinterest. I acknowledge that Pinterest is caring for the safety of teens and I deeply appreciate it, but this is not the solution. If there isn’t an update soon, her, along with some friends may cease the use of Pinterest and switch over to a platform such as tiktok that allows her to post all of her ideas and creations which bring her much joy. If you have came to the end, I give thanks for your reading. Pleas to reconsider the update.

Used to love it
This used to be one of my favorite apps. I got my husband hooked on it as well. But now it seems that ads are taking over. Too many buyable pins that have nothing to do with anything I’ve ever looked at or saved. And way too much pornography for a site that claims they don’t allow it. I highly doubt that a picture of a naked woman with her legs spread and that links to a xxx site is considered “art”. I agree that in artistic instances nudity would be acceptable, but on a site that I am supposed to be able to hand my phone over to my child to play on, these things shouldn’t be on there. I get that it’s the same risk you run with using the net, but these things show up in home feeds when you’ve never looked at anything remotely close to it. My husband showed me a funny gun meme and as her scrolled through the “more like this” several naked women came up. If the pinning rules aren’t going to be enforced, there should be some sort of family filter you can click on. I’ve also noticed over the past couple days, my husband has a recents tab in his boards page that I don’t have. This is actually pretty handy if I’ve looked at something but didn’t pin. Seems like if I try to go back and find something I’ve seen earlier in the day, it’s impossible to find again. With a few improvements and enforcements it could be better.

Ad Overload
I will preface by saying I don’t mind ads for free apps; and I do engage & click relevant ads often for neat stuff. But within the last couple weeks the newest app updates have ruined the home feed Pinterest experience. I’ve used this app for years YEARS loved it…and have never once thought “wow I may never open this app again” after an update like I did today. Every 4th pin is followed by at least 2 back to back ads/promoted by pins, I counted…closed out of the app and counted again… 3 times. It’s ruined the feel of browsing through fun new creative ideas and slaps you in the face with irrelevant content from advertisers you don’t even want to see. 2 stars because the good content is still there, you just can’t engage or enjoy it with literal blocks of ads per scroll. I’ll check back in the next few updates but if they don’t fix this to make ads more seamless again (or at least less jarringly stacked on top of each other) then it may be time to retire this app for good. Also I NEVER write reviews, this update is definitely a way to kill your business… make the app unusable for long time platform supporters. Along with inundating discussion boards with a copy/paste PR script so obviously from marketing to try & get ahead of increased ad complaints instead of actually utilizing effective UX/I design that doesn't aggravate the nerves.

Love it but this update??
I love pinterest, I have been using it for years. One of my favorite features was that I could look at pins related to specific boards on the homepage. Why did ya’ll think it was a good idea to swap it for a “watch” section. Not every app has to be like tiktok. The watch section is LITERALLY tiktok. If I wanted to see those videos I would go on tiktok but I don’t because I come on pinterest to look at pretty pictures. I understand some people might like it, but it was just fine the way they showed up in the feed amongst the normal feed instead of having a tiktok only watch section. PLEASE bring back being able to swipe over and see pins related to specific boards. You do not need to be tiktok #2 EDIT: I’m glad to see you brought back the “more ideas” tabs. I wrote my last review in anger after seeing the update because I don’t like change and loved pinterest as it was. I still stand by not liking the watch section. I also don’t like that when you click on a video it brings you to a video scroll feed instead of the way it used to be. I used to watch some videos on this platform, especially to see related pins, but I will no longer be watching any in dislike of the tiktok like feed.

GET READY FOR GARBAGE!
Want an app seems worthwhile but is guaranteed to inundate you with garbage on a daily basis? Pinterest is for you! Just when you think you’ve got a handle on things Pinterest’s algorithms will decide you’re really interested in something completely irrelevant. If you want to follow grown-up subjects like art or graphic design Pinterest will make sure you see nothing but fingernail painting and revolting foods. Interested in architecture? Pinterest has you covered with hundreds of pins showing home-schooling plans and dodgy financial advice. Like book design? You’ll see more hair braiding and weight-loss tips than you can shake a stick at! And the advertising! Always on target. Pinterest knows you’re sure to decide on your next car or make other major financial plans on the basis of companies they promote. You’ll see plenty of pins about vacations you can’t afford and products no sensible person would buy. But don’t bother blocking them (or anything, really) - they’ll be back next week whether you want to see them or not. And the support team TOTALLY has your back! Pinterest takes your concerns seriously, with responsive feedback that ignores your complaints, blames you for problems, and retaliates by doubling down on content you’re guaranteed not to love. Pinterest? Might as well be Insta. Or FB. Or nothing at all. P.S. All these problems are worse since I posted this review! Nice way to treat a user!

Over all the stuff that I don’t follow but am forced to look at!
I use to love Pinterest. It was my favorite. I chose what I wanted to look at. Then they started changing things and changing things more and more. Made us have to look at their stupid ads and suggested posts. Now it has gotten to the point to where 90 percent of everything is ads and suggested posts-guess what I don’t want to see what you have suggested. I want to see what I want to see-what I chose to follow. There is no way to remove the crap and even if you report and remove the incessant ones, they just add that many more. Here’s a little tip-I do not want to see and have no interest in pins that are in a foreign language and I have to look at them constantly. So I’m really getting over Pinterest. Add in the fact that I can’t see who pins what anymore-I like seeing when the people I follow that I like have pinned something but now I can’t tell because it’s blank where a user use to be listed. Every update it gets worse and I find myself getting on Pinterest less and less. I am quickly losing my interest in Pinterest. They need to go back to letting people control what they look at. I could understand having some ads but the amount of content on my board that I didn’t follow has gotten way out of control. If it doesn’t get any better and I keep getting pins in foreign languages then I will just quit using it. I hope it improves soon. If not then I will stop using it.

STOP UPDATING THE APP😡😡
ok. usually when apps companies update their app it gets better. NOT PINTEREST APPARENTLY!!!! i cant message people through the app anymore, nor can i see my followers. and some of my friends and family that i follow it wont show. not even when i search for their profile. there are also many different dumb unnecessary updates, like when i post something it wont allow me to turn on comment. i’ve asked others if these things are the same for them- and surprise surprise it is. and on top of all of this it randomly turned my business account to a normal account messing up a lot of stuff i’ve been working on for months. i’m 16 years old and the terms of service says that if you’re 16 years old or older you should have control over this stuff. also they do random updates where it completely messes up my For You to just random stuff like makeup, jordans, and nail stuff, which i have never saved or marked as my interests. which there is nothing wrong with people who like that, i just personally don’t like that stuff. so why is it being recommended as the default even though i never saved anything like that? and if mark as “irrelevant to me” it still shows it. so i doubt customer service will see this, but please fix these problems. and fix them the right way. i really do love pinterest but every time they do something weird to it i start using it less and less.
