    Nothing’s worse than trying to plan a DIY kids party and not knowing where to start. Instead of spending 4 hours searching through party supply and craft stores, go in with some inspiration of what you want. Pinterest is perfect for decoration, goodie bag, and food ideas.

    Find different ideas and inspiration for slime that you can make with your family at home. Instead of just using the standard 1 or 2 kinds of slime, you can make a special slime that is more exciting and fun to play with made by others who love slime.

    Trying to find a quality airplane design that only takes 10 minutes to make can take quite a bit of searching. Pinterest has hundreds of different paper airplane designs with great tutorials, so you can start throwing paper airplanes around in no time.

  • Love the app, hate the updates Mar 4, 2020

    By Emu taco's
    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
  • Pop-up notifications too big Apr 24, 2021

    By Minnie Angie
    I’ve been a fan of Pinterest for many years. I’ve seen the way the app has changed visually quite a few times. I loved it then and still do now. One thing I’d like to change is the way notifications look when I save or delete something. The banner that tells me that I’ve successfully saved a pin to a board, blocks a portion of the next pin that I’m currently looking at. It’s too large (a big white bar) and stays on the screen a bit longer than I would like. I’d like to see a more minimal design: thinner banner, smaller font, maybe less opaque, and disappears quickly. Perhaps it could just be a simple checkmark with the name of the board the pin was saved to. if I was a casual user who only saved a few pins at a time, it probably wouldn’t bother me so much. But I tend to fall into a rabbit hole of inspo and pin so many photos to different boards that the huge pop-up hinders the experience. It would be great if I could move through photo to photo more smoothly. It’s something super minimal, but I really don’t have an issue with anything else apart from this. When there are unexpected issues within the app, I find it’s pretty easy to get around the problem and it gets resolved fairly quickly by the team (very good job on that part). It’s just this banner thing that’s not up to me to change and it’s something I encounter every time I’m on Pinterest.
  • Stop changing it constantly Dec 17, 2020

    By karebear2984
    I love Pinterest, I have for a while now. However, they constantly are changing their formatting & the way it’s set up. Sometimes it’s for the better; I loved when they added the sections to boards as this made it way easier to organize pins, boards, & keep track of it all. But it’s not always a good thing. Recently they updated it & got rid of the A-Z on my home page which can make it a pain if you want to pin something in the lower end of the alphabet & have a lot of boards. Or if you want to look at a board without searching the board specifically (sometimes I may forget what I titled a board) & just want to look under Q because I know I have it under a board for quotes for example. So my point is the changes they make aren’t always positive. And even if you’re like me & use Pinterest a lot it’s hard to keep up with the “new” way of doing things & set up they may have changed it to. Kinda like if someone constantly keeps giving you an updated phone, you’ll figure it sure, but if they give you one all the time it gets annoying as you’re trying to keep up with how does it function now? I mean way too constant. There may be features you really like that they do away with completely & that may ultimately make you use it less. Stop it Pinterest team. I know you’re working on improving it, & that’s great, but don’t fix what isn’t broken.
  • Unfixed issues Mar 3, 2021

    By randomfamdom123
    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

    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!

    I love Pinterest!!! For anything I need to search, I'll find real life people's experiences & tips about the subject. Recipes are so easy to search & save. Anything I save to Pinterest is always close to my fingertips & all in one place. I have all kind of categories I save things to, like vacation rentals, Ted Talks, vision boards, flowers, clothes, arts & crafts, animals, books, beauty tips, camping, exercises, gardening, instant pot, self care, movies, parenting, & world photos, etc., etc.
  • Have I reached the end of Pinterest? Oct 11, 2017

    By Tl333333::
    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 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!

    I love Pinterest, I've used this app ever since middle school. It was great for years until the updates started to slow down and crash the app. Everytime I use the app, the longer I stay on it, it'll start to lag. I'm not the only one experiencing this. My best friend and her wife, my wife, and myself, even my aunt and sister are experiencing this, so I Know it's not my phone. I agree, hault the updates and just leave the app alone. It seems the more you update the software, the more it lags.
  • Can only tell tech support about listed problems Dec 13, 2020

    By Barbqman
    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!

    Pinterest used to be great but now it seems to be getting worse with every update. I went around troubleshooting for the last couple of days only to find out that everyone was having the same issue. I hate that all my pins go into one section automatically and I don't have the time to be taking them out and putting them in the proper board. If you want to keep your users, then I suggest taking that new feature away because I'm done using Pinterest if its going to be like this.

    UPDATE: I love this app; however, with each update - there are more problems. Now.. additional to the other issues which I started experiencing, I am now losing viewers for no apparent reason. I am talking about (by the millions.) Is anyone else experiencing this problem? ● With each update, this app becomes less productive and more troublesome. It takes an extremely long time to load and it's consistently telling me that I am not connected to a network ... saying the user is not found.

    By Infra Rogue
    Pinterest used to be fantastic for finding pictures and artwork, but recently it seems like they've shifted focus from your interests to promoting ads and "creators" as about a 50/50 split with your actual interests. The icing on the cake is the new "saved to profile" function which just makes saving pins tedious. I understand wanting to make money, but really?
  • Jun 20, 2021

    By miranda toller hovler
    I love the app, used it for years. Desktop verion is a disaster, app is great. However, the recent update puts all your saves by default under "profile", so you have to make extra clicks quick enough on the opposite end of the screen to change to put this back in the right board. This is an annoyance that honestly makes me irritated and reluctant to use the app since it really breaks the user friendliness and streamline feel. If this is changed back i rate 5 stars. :)

    By Shannon Subashe
    EDIT: This app used to be so much quieter; now ads are every other pin, and the new related content I used to see is nowhere. 50 duplicates for something I looked at once. Sucks now. Pinterest is phenomenal. I've used it since 2013 and it has made it so much easier to find so many things - and stay relevant to my interests. Whether looking for inspiration for recipes, crafts, clothes, hair, makeup, animals, laughter and so much more, you've found the right place. Get started and enjoy🙌🏻🙌🏻

    I've been using this app and website for literal years but this new quick save bs is really, really annoying, I guess I can see the idea of it but it just makes pinning things more tedious. Please make it a setting you can opt out of, that way you can choose whether or not you want it. Like I said I've been using the platform for a while so I didn't wanna give it 1 star but it may deserve it with this update.
  • None of my comments are being saved to my pins! Sep 17, 2019

    By Fionajuliana
    I mostly love Pinterest and the app, but there is definite room for improvement. Severely dislike the new way to search! Please go back to the way it was before this last update. Also, the constant refreshing means that as soon as I focus on a pin I might want to click on it’s gone. Please allow us Pinners to manually refresh our feed! Probably my biggest complaint is the lack of ability to edit the title or description of the pins we pin via the app. It was there and now exists only on the full site. Now I’m having to go back through EACH pin I’ve saved in the last few weeks and edit EVERY ONE on my computer. PLEASE fix this! The comments are where we, as Pinners, get to add our own thoughts to the ideas we are pinning and it’s the way we can search our own pins to find the ones we’ve saved. It is an essential function of the pinning process! That is the point right? To actually use the pins we save? Looking forward to having this bug squashed soon! Lastly, if I could have Pinterest the way I really liked it best I would return the like button and remove the tried button. I don’t really care who has tried a pin that I save. If I needed to gather several ideas quickly I would go through and like several pertinent pins so they were saved and go back to pin them later when I had time to add my own descriptions. Feeling nostalgic just now! Please bring back the likes! Thanks!

    I have had Pinterest for a while now, and I enjoy it. But after the update with the "creators" I can't tap on the top bar to look at pins for specific boards. I also go to the settings to turn off Show Shopping Recommendations, the switch is turned to off, so I close the window, and then when I open the page again, it is turned back on. The comment section is super buggy and never works, it says that there is X comments but when I open the section, there isn't any comments, or less than X.

    I logged onto the app as normal and it signed me out! It wouldn't load or do anything, it just claimed that my connection wasn't stable/working. I tried reinstalling, restarting my phone, deleting cache data, everything! It seems to be broken now, I'm extremely disappointed and frustrated. Wish I could go back to the previous version. Update: It was fixed for a short period of time, before I clicked on a notification from a message and Pinterest broke yet again! Disappointed.
  • Increasingly disappointed with the app Sep 17, 2020

    By Coatesse
    Edit/Update: while the constant crash was eventually fixed (thank you) there is the issue of the auto-refresh on the home page. Please fix this. In former versions of the app you would have to manually refresh by pulling down on the home page and it would show new/different ideas to save. Now it autofreshes even if I minimize the app and come back, switch apps and come back, or when I toggl between home and the search, friends, and ‘my boards’ screens. I constantly loose sight of ideas I have for my home or recipes for my newly diabetic partner. And when I go to history the past pins I’ve viewed not only are the ones I had to physically tap on but the links to the limited pins aren’t live to take me back to them. Can’t pin things I can’t see. — Increasingly disappointed with the app as the quality of the user experience has declined with recent updates. The app crashes with each use. In the last two weeks alone I’ve needed to exit and reopen the app with every use, even with the most up to date version of the app. To add, advertisements now appear about every three pins, which decreases the ease of use of the app. When scrolling right to left, unrelated “pins” (advertisements) every three pins is very annoying especially when seeking specific content instead of casual browsing. I see the effort on aesthetic aspects of the app, however, these cannot be fully appreciated when the operation of the app falls short of pleasurable.

    By 77 and still learning
    As a retired educator of 44 years I have felt bad about students not learning the “basics”. I am a firm believer in lifetime learning however and have found the internet, especially Pinterest and u tube to be an amazing resource. My hobbies include woodworking, welding, customizing autos, boats, motorcycles, oil painting, silversmithing, etc. no day passes that I do not find something valuable. After camping and hunting for a lifetime I am shocked about how many tips I find to make these hobbies more comfortable or economical. Think about being turned around in the woods or a city. Ask seri and you can get out the most isolated spot. Drive along and see a sign in Spanish or some other language and you can get a translation, The benefits are endless and Pinterest is a wonderful tool. The biggest problem I had with public school students was the question “where are we going to use this?” If you are in an unsatisfactory, dead end job then education is the rescue. Education does not have to be classical academic. It can be welding, home building, concrete work, electrical, auto repair, beauty school, or what ever you are interested in. Pinterest can answer a lot of questions about whether to proceed into a field. Keep an open mind!
  • Great App but Needs Some Work... Dec 18, 2017

    By Minecraft1207
    Hi! Before I go into my suggestions I would just like to say I don't leave ratings a whole lot so I don't know if there is a proper way to set up my comment LOL. Anyway I think this app is AWESOME. It runs really well and the quality is just amazing. There is one improvement I have. There are A LOT of pins that have some serious vulgar language. Now I understand you can't really tell people to stop swearing but maybe there is a way to block these pins? Of course I know you can block pinners but maybe instead there is a way to block the pins that have vulgar language instead of blocking the pinner. So you are just blocking one of their pins and not all of there boards. Maybe like a child-friendly mode? It is just really annoying when you are just scrolling through your home feed and boom there is this pin that swears like crazy. I have already turned off recommend pins and unfollowed people that pin pins that have vulgar language but I still run in to this problem. I just don't want to see that stuff. Anyway I don't know if this is possible but if it is I think it would be an awesome improvement. Again this is a great app and I totally suggest downloading it.
  • awesome but Nov 14, 2020

    By GHOOOSSSTTT
    hi! i love pinterest, i’ve been using it since like 2012 when i got my first ipod touch. It’s been awesome and i have like, a gazillion boards for fashion and art references and nerdy projects and i love it BUUUTTTT ya’ll switched up the way we choose the board we’re saving a pin to and i am not okay. I had the max number of boards (150?) and then when the max number rose i’ve continued to make more and more boards and honestly??? manually scrolling past every single board i’ve made since i was 14 instead of the alphabet slider is TOUGH but then to top it off, whenever i pass the board im looking for, when i try to scroll up it just closes the whole screen and im back starting at the pin i wanted to save but couldn’t. It is such a hassle and the select-a-board screen is so sensitive that sometimes it takes me like 3-4 tries to pin something. and when i use a board that has a ton of sections in it, i have to successfully navigate the new way to pin things ✨twice✨ to actually pin something. I’m in my 20s, i grew up on tech, im not dumb. please at least make the slider less sensitive, and i’d really appreciate getting the alphabet slider back. i’m dying 🥺
  • following Jun 4, 2018

    By Noryie
    the statement below was my previous rating, till I realized that Pinterest created an old-school space under the "following" tag where I only see images from people I'm following... exactly why people fell in love with Pinterest to begin with. thank you so much for going back to the basics, and even though you still have these whack ads, they're on the "home" section, not the "following" one, so yay!!! please don't muck it up with ads on the "following" section. what you did is genius, and now everyone should be happy. old review: why, Pinterest? why? I don't understand why you continue to push pins from people I don't follow. I don't follow them for a reason. don't you understand that pinterest is visual therapy for many, that is, they log in and get much relief from seeing all the ideas they've pinned as well as pins from people or boards they follow. but then we see ugly images that are supposedly taken from our own interests, and they muck up the whole flow of image therapy. then I have to click "hide" one image after the other after the other until I get so sick and tired of seeing the same ugly pics and just close the app. you guys are whack.
  • Board sections finally came and are amazing!!! (Need a couple fixes though) Nov 10, 2017

    By ncmtngirl60
    I’ve been asking for sub-boards for years and Pinterest finally delivered! Although you previously had keyword terms show up in boards, you couldn’t create your own, so it wasn’t as great. But now you can! The only bad thing though is I’m seeing a few glitches on mine. Since we can create our own sections within boards, I tried to combine a couple of my original boards into sections on just 1 board. I noticed that every time you edited the location of a group of pins from one board to another, you had to close back out of the app afterwords because the other board wouldn’t appear in the new destination list when you tried to switch some more over again. Then, since I thought all of the pins from one board had successfully been moved to the other board, I deleted the original, only to find out for some reason that they hadn’t actually been moved to the other one. I lost an entire board today😢 please fix! Also maybe have suggestions as to which pins belong in which sections? Other than that though, the new feature is great.
  • Love Love Love Pinterest, FYI Version 7.41.2 Bug Nov 25, 2019

    By mmmattieee
    I love Pinterest. I’ve been using it almost every day for over 7 years. Love the App! It’s only gotten. Better Love the content and the concepts! I love the algorithm, always shows me perfectly related searches and ideas for crafts for look books! I’m able to collaborate with people and create coordinated projects. I use it for vision boarding my goals, picking an outfit in the morning, and putting together my dreams! It’s very easy to use! Very forgiving of any mistakes I make with my fat fingers. One bug. In version 7.41.2 the app keeps freezing on me. I’ll be scrolling and my screen will freeze and the app will, after a couple minutes of fighting, shut down. Or I’ll be in a post and it’s just unresponsive. When this happens I usually close it, open another app and it’s working fine, my phone isn’t frozen so I give Pinterest a moment and it works again but it’s been happening almost every time I open the app! Never got a bug like this that lasted this long, usually you guys are good at sending updates to catch them in time before I loose my mind. Update soon please!! Keep up the good work
  • Love the app, hate the updates Mar 4, 2020

    By Emu taco's
    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
  • Pop-up notifications too big Apr 24, 2021

    By Minnie Angie
    I’ve been a fan of Pinterest for many years. I’ve seen the way the app has changed visually quite a few times. I loved it then and still do now. One thing I’d like to change is the way notifications look when I save or delete something. The banner that tells me that I’ve successfully saved a pin to a board, blocks a portion of the next pin that I’m currently looking at. It’s too large (a big white bar) and stays on the screen a bit longer than I would like. I’d like to see a more minimal design: thinner banner, smaller font, maybe less opaque, and disappears quickly. Perhaps it could just be a simple checkmark with the name of the board the pin was saved to. if I was a casual user who only saved a few pins at a time, it probably wouldn’t bother me so much. But I tend to fall into a rabbit hole of inspo and pin so many photos to different boards that the huge pop-up hinders the experience. It would be great if I could move through photo to photo more smoothly. It’s something super minimal, but I really don’t have an issue with anything else apart from this. When there are unexpected issues within the app, I find it’s pretty easy to get around the problem and it gets resolved fairly quickly by the team (very good job on that part). It’s just this banner thing that’s not up to me to change and it’s something I encounter every time I’m on Pinterest.
  • Stop changing it constantly Dec 17, 2020

    By karebear2984
    I love Pinterest, I have for a while now. However, they constantly are changing their formatting & the way it’s set up. Sometimes it’s for the better; I loved when they added the sections to boards as this made it way easier to organize pins, boards, & keep track of it all. But it’s not always a good thing. Recently they updated it & got rid of the A-Z on my home page which can make it a pain if you want to pin something in the lower end of the alphabet & have a lot of boards. Or if you want to look at a board without searching the board specifically (sometimes I may forget what I titled a board) & just want to look under Q because I know I have it under a board for quotes for example. So my point is the changes they make aren’t always positive. And even if you’re like me & use Pinterest a lot it’s hard to keep up with the “new” way of doing things & set up they may have changed it to. Kinda like if someone constantly keeps giving you an updated phone, you’ll figure it sure, but if they give you one all the time it gets annoying as you’re trying to keep up with how does it function now? I mean way too constant. There may be features you really like that they do away with completely & that may ultimately make you use it less. Stop it Pinterest team. I know you’re working on improving it, & that’s great, but don’t fix what isn’t broken.

    A good, high-quality app (one of the better-known ones) It's great for inspiration but a problem that I found a lot of people have is working the boards and groups/subgroups. I don't find it a problem, other than being time consuming. But be warned, they send TONS of notifications, even when I block it they still find a way to overflow my email. I think notifications should stay on the app and not be sent by text/email. Other than that the app is great and useful!
  • Long-time user but hate some of the updates Dec 15, 2020

    By WonderGround13
    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.
  • I love it but.... some stuff has to change. Dec 13, 2020

    By cats4ever!😺❤️
    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.
  • I love Pinterest, but.. Aug 10, 2019

    By UnicornBuckeye
    i love pinterest so much and i’ve had it for a while but now, it’s starting to act up. one day i was just on pinterest after growing my account a good amount. and then suddenly it logged me out i was so confused and thought it was just a glitch and i could log back in. but i couldn’t. it said i had done something wrong and i was suspended from that account. i had no idea what it was talking about. i hadn’t done anything wrong. and i couldn’t check my email to see why i was suspended because it was hooked up with another pinterest account. so i made a new account and it was ok. but i was glitching, a lot. i couldn’t follow anyone. i would follow someone and pinterest would unfollow them. i also couldn’t message anyone. when ever i tried it would say “oops! there’s been an error” it was sooo annoying. i tried everything, restarting my phone, deleting pinterest then downloading it again. nothing worked. then free two days maybe. it logged me out and said i was suspended, again! i created a new account and maybe ten minutes into the account, which i still couldn’t follow anyone or message anyone, i got suspended from that account! i am so aggravated! it is so annoying. could you please fix this? i love pinterest not i can’t do anything anymore! thanks!
  • Suggestion to the app developers Mar 16, 2019

    By Guardrock
    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.
  • High Praise, but why change the feed on ‘following’ to single pix? Mar 15, 2019

    By OrchidGirl60
    I note the feed for ‘home’ is thankfully the same as before, with multiple pix across the page, but the feed for ‘following’ is single, large format pix., making it difficult to consume many photos for time spent. Please, please change this back! That said, I have been a long-time Pinterest user and have seen it go through a lot of changes. I have to say they have been pretty responsive to requests, overall. You can now opt between suggested pin feed, or feed from people you follow. You can once more arrange boards to suit. You can also choose how you want to view boards, 3 across, 4 across, or a page of small thumbnails. Also, as many Secret boards as you like. Something for everyone. It used to be far more social, as far as associating people with their pins, even when they were re-pinned...although problems sprang up with people being very protective about the artistry of their boards and discouraging people from pinning more than a few pins a day, and so things changed. I agree with many that the promoted pins can be a bit much, and I would prefer not being automatically taken to a site. Still, it is a great app and still allows for lots of creativity and enjoyment.
  • Where did the “Like” button go? Feb 2, 2020

    By Tgdovic2
    I’m all about Pinterest. I love the recipe and meal ideas, the seasonal outfit ideas, the cookie & cake decorating ideas and the ability to find awesome ideas for parties I’m planning. When I first started using Pinterest, years ago, not only could you save a pin, you could click on a little heart and like it. Where did that go? Now, on another person’s board, I saw a little lightbulb in the bottom left of the pin that said to tap and hold for reactions. This is great but when I went into my board to check out my pins it didn’t have that feature. I’d kind of like the option to like a pin again, especially pins personal pins, not just re-pinned things. Will everyone eventually get these reaction buttons? I really hope so. I guess what I’m saying is it would be great if someone saw a pin that was of, say, my own personal content, they would both have the option to “Like” it and to re-pin it. It be nice for the person who’s putting their own content on Pinterest to know if their followers like what they’re pinning. Other than that I think maybe you could slow down on the ads a little. I know Pinterest is free, which is fabulous, but ads popping up more than once or twice during a video is really annoying.
  • Unfixed issues Mar 3, 2021

    By randomfamdom123
    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
  • Have I reached the end of Pinterest? Oct 11, 2017

    By Tl333333::
    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 Pinterest, I've used this app ever since middle school. It was great for years until the updates started to slow down and crash the app. Everytime I use the app, the longer I stay on it, it'll start to lag. I'm not the only one experiencing this. My best friend and her wife, my wife, and myself, even my aunt and sister are experiencing this, so I Know it's not my phone. I agree, hault the updates and just leave the app alone. It seems the more you update the software, the more it lags.
  • Can only tell tech support about listed problems Dec 13, 2020

    By Barbqman
    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!
  • ALL Ads & Algorithm. NO (real) friends Oct 4, 2018

    By Kahleelee
    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.
  • Jun 16, 2021

    By Kaitlyn Jefferson
    The only issue I'm having is when I search for a recipe, every pin that I select to look closer at only offers me a blurb about the author. It looks like there is an option to swipe within that pin to see ingredients & other images, but I cannot. There's also no way for me to get to the website the pin is supposed to be linked to- if I "click" on the pin, it goes to the author's profile. I tried updating & reinstalling the app, but nothing changed. Maybe it's my phone, or I'm just challenged.
  • Used to love it Nov 14, 2017

    By happy65390
    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.
  • Bring back “Search By Board”!! Feb 1, 2021

    By Melisska72
    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?
  • Good in the past, but terrible updates! Jun 10, 2021

    By my thiccy butt
    I have been using the Pinterest app for years now, and these updates may be terrible enough for me to finally leave. First of all, the stories/slides function is confusing and difficult to use. If I’m ever swiping through content it’s a hassle to get through these stories that often have nothing to do with what I’ve pinned in the past, which brings me to my next point: the algorithm. I am constantly getting both suggested pins and targeted ads that have nothing to do with any boards or searches I’ve made! My home feed is full of ads that I am not interested in with very little actual content, much of which is irrelevant as well. It seems like the “hide pin” feature doesn’t even do anything to improve my feed. To me, it seems like Pinterest is struggling to remain relevant in the wake of Instagram and TikTok by introducing new features and changing up how content reaches viewers, but I think I speak for the majority of Pinterest users when I say that people don’t use Pinterest in the same way we use other platforms. There’s no need for flash and flair when Pinterest is already a well-designed social media platform with a specific user base in mind, and making these changes just interrupts the way people use the app.
  • Not the same anymore Dec 14, 2017

    By Lisa Andresen
    I’ve been using Pinterest since the beginning, when it was invite-only. I planned my wedding with Pinterest, I stumbled onto so many cool ideas and life hacks and interesting people... Pinterest legit made my life *better.* Now I hardly use the app at all. It’s almost all ads, and I hardy ever see content from the people I follow. Even worse is the search function, which is... pathetic, to say the least. Pinterest used to be fantastic for helping me find inspiring images and links for just about *anything* I was looking for; now searches only yield a handful of results, all of which are ads, *none* of which are actually relevant to my search. I’ve been using Google image search a lot more now. Pinterest has become essentially useless to me. I’m not seeing content I like, I’m not able to search for content I like, and with so many ads, the “social” aspect of this so-called “social media platform” is nonexistent. Seriously, what’s the point? I’m holding out hope that developers will take critiques like this seriously and restore some of the functions that made Pinterest such a great app, but... I’m losing patience. If things don’t get better I’ll probably just delete the app and save space on my phone... why keep a useless app around?

    UPDATE: I love this app; however, with each update - there are more problems. Now.. additional to the other issues which I started experiencing, I am now losing viewers for no apparent reason. I am talking about (by the millions.) Is anyone else experiencing this problem? ● With each update, this app becomes less productive and more troublesome. It takes an extremely long time to load and it's consistently telling me that I am not connected to a network ... saying the user is not found.

    By Infra Rogue
    Pinterest used to be fantastic for finding pictures and artwork, but recently it seems like they've shifted focus from your interests to promoting ads and "creators" as about a 50/50 split with your actual interests. The icing on the cake is the new "saved to profile" function which just makes saving pins tedious. I understand wanting to make money, but really?
  • Jun 20, 2021

    By miranda toller hovler
    I love the app, used it for years. Desktop verion is a disaster, app is great. However, the recent update puts all your saves by default under "profile", so you have to make extra clicks quick enough on the opposite end of the screen to change to put this back in the right board. This is an annoyance that honestly makes me irritated and reluctant to use the app since it really breaks the user friendliness and streamline feel. If this is changed back i rate 5 stars. :)
  • Jun 20, 2021

    By blossoming confused
    I've been using this app and website for literal years but this new quick save bs is really, really annoying, I guess I can see the idea of it but it just makes pinning things more tedious. Please make it a setting you can opt out of, that way you can choose whether or not you want it. Like I said I've been using the platform for a while so I didn't wanna give it 1 star but it may deserve it with this update.
  • None of my comments are being saved to my pins! Sep 17, 2019

    By Fionajuliana
    I mostly love Pinterest and the app, but there is definite room for improvement. Severely dislike the new way to search! Please go back to the way it was before this last update. Also, the constant refreshing means that as soon as I focus on a pin I might want to click on it’s gone. Please allow us Pinners to manually refresh our feed! Probably my biggest complaint is the lack of ability to edit the title or description of the pins we pin via the app. It was there and now exists only on the full site. Now I’m having to go back through EACH pin I’ve saved in the last few weeks and edit EVERY ONE on my computer. PLEASE fix this! The comments are where we, as Pinners, get to add our own thoughts to the ideas we are pinning and it’s the way we can search our own pins to find the ones we’ve saved. It is an essential function of the pinning process! That is the point right? To actually use the pins we save? Looking forward to having this bug squashed soon! Lastly, if I could have Pinterest the way I really liked it best I would return the like button and remove the tried button. I don’t really care who has tried a pin that I save. If I needed to gather several ideas quickly I would go through and like several pertinent pins so they were saved and go back to pin them later when I had time to add my own descriptions. Feeling nostalgic just now! Please bring back the likes! Thanks!

    It was doing great until the new update where stories are added and it pushes you to follow people. It was one of my favorite apps to relax on, but now it's just draining with all the incentive to buy things and follow people and check people's stories. It used to be different from every other social media app. Followers didn't matter and there were no annoying stories, it was a relaxing refuge. The store is alright, if you're someone who wants it, annoying if you're just looking for ideas

    I've been using Pinterest for quite a while now. Recently, my home feed is full of pins that are not related to my interest at all. I've never searched for those pins during my time on Pinterest. So, I hope that problem could be fixed. Also, the new "Quick Save" feature has been making it harder to organize the pins I saved to my boards. In my opinion, this update doesn't really have any positive effects on helping me saving pins and organizing it. Hopefully these problems can be solved quickly!

    I was pretty satisfied with this app until the recent update changed the algorithm with which pins are recommended. Now, I only see pins that are entirely unrelated and often very strange. I preferred the previous algorithm. Not only that, but the increase in advertisements and focus on "creators" is making the app almost unusable. It's already annoying enough that customised board order isn't even shown to others. An app needs to be user-friendly to be worth having on your phone.

    I like the app, but the ads are ridiculous. I understand you need ads to make money but the ads blend in with the other articles so some times it's not clear which are ads. But the worst part is, and the main reason I'm writing this review, most of the ads are extremely sketchy. Pinterest is showing ads for companies that are very clearly scams. Regular ads are fine, but getting money from people whose business is ripping people off is disgusting.

    EDIT: Had to drop a couple of stars because now can't add a caption at all, even from the edit screen. Attempts to get help are answered with unrelated boilerplate. I hate that I open the app and see a pin I want to explore, but it's gone before I can click on it. Let ME decide when to refresh the page, please. Also hate that you took away the ability to add a caption when adding a pin, so that I have to go find it and edit to add a caption. That being said, I use the app constantly.

    Pinterest used to be great but now it seems to be getting worse with every update. I went around troubleshooting for the last couple of days only to find out that everyone was having the same issue. I hate that all my pins go into one section automatically and I don't have the time to be taking them out and putting them in the proper board. If you want to keep your users, then I suggest taking that new feature away because I'm done using Pinterest if its going to be like this.

    EDIT: This app used to be so much quieter; now ads are every other pin, and the new related content I used to see is nowhere. 50 duplicates for something I looked at once. Sucks now. Pinterest is phenomenal. I've used it since 2013 and it has made it so much easier to find so many things - and stay relevant to my interests. Whether looking for inspiration for recipes, crafts, clothes, hair, makeup, animals, laughter and so much more, you've found the right place. Get started and enjoy🙌🏻🙌🏻

    I have had Pinterest for a while now, and I enjoy it. But after the update with the "creators" I can't tap on the top bar to look at pins for specific boards. I also go to the settings to turn off Show Shopping Recommendations, the switch is turned to off, so I close the window, and then when I open the page again, it is turned back on. The comment section is super buggy and never works, it says that there is X comments but when I open the section, there isn't any comments, or less than X.

    I logged onto the app as normal and it signed me out! It wouldn't load or do anything, it just claimed that my connection wasn't stable/working. I tried reinstalling, restarting my phone, deleting cache data, everything! It seems to be broken now, I'm extremely disappointed and frustrated. Wish I could go back to the previous version. Update: It was fixed for a short period of time, before I clicked on a notification from a message and Pinterest broke yet again! Disappointed.
  • Increasingly disappointed with the app Sep 17, 2020

    By Coatesse
    Edit/Update: while the constant crash was eventually fixed (thank you) there is the issue of the auto-refresh on the home page. Please fix this. In former versions of the app you would have to manually refresh by pulling down on the home page and it would show new/different ideas to save. Now it autofreshes even if I minimize the app and come back, switch apps and come back, or when I toggl between home and the search, friends, and ‘my boards’ screens. I constantly loose sight of ideas I have for my home or recipes for my newly diabetic partner. And when I go to history the past pins I’ve viewed not only are the ones I had to physically tap on but the links to the limited pins aren’t live to take me back to them. Can’t pin things I can’t see. — Increasingly disappointed with the app as the quality of the user experience has declined with recent updates. The app crashes with each use. In the last two weeks alone I’ve needed to exit and reopen the app with every use, even with the most up to date version of the app. To add, advertisements now appear about every three pins, which decreases the ease of use of the app. When scrolling right to left, unrelated “pins” (advertisements) every three pins is very annoying especially when seeking specific content instead of casual browsing. I see the effort on aesthetic aspects of the app, however, these cannot be fully appreciated when the operation of the app falls short of pleasurable.

    Okay listen to me. You must get rid of the "view similar products" thing that always pops up when I click on a pin. It shows that text then white dots appear over the picture. I am here to just to look at cool photos, NOT to buy anything and I dont like this being shoved in my face. It shows up on pins where it doesn't even make sense for it to. Give me the option to turn it off because it's making the app very irritating and not worth using.
  • Over all the stuff that I don’t follow but am forced to look at! Oct 25, 2018

    By crb022
    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.
  • Why?! With the ads, no ad free version and now you change the saving options! Mar 26, 2021

    By Nikki870621345
    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.
  • I cant see new ideas anymore, it makes me not get on this app like ever Oct 13, 2019

    By Ima star who eats other stars
    My favorite part of this app was the fact that I could go to explore and find new ideas, hence why I always have so many boards. New ideas would pop up in the explore and i would love it and go crazy looking for new ideas from pinterest by looking through the explore every chance I got but you guys got rid of the explore. Now when i click one pin even by accident i get 50 more pins for the exact same pin. Sometimes It would be one simple recipe of pie and now i have 30 of them everyday. So then you guys created an option where I can not get specific suggestions from what I clicked but even when I unfollow what I clicked it doesnt matter because my feed is literally still exact suggestions from my boards I created. So i feel like i dont get anywhere with this app. I am literally on instagram all the time because I can see different new things not different versions of the same thing especially ones I pinned already. Its fine when im searching for something but after a while I get the point and I get off the app. I wont even bring up the ads. Sorry but Im done with this app. I sure i wont be the last. Your new users dont know what their missing but seeing the same sweater everyday will get boring for them too eventually. Bring back explore so we can see new ideas, stop thinking i want to see 80 different versions of a pink Christmas tree.
  • This app needs to fix safety issues for minors ASAP Apr 19, 2021

    By Khtgshchfybcd
    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.
