    This is a fantastic post that is obviously full of hard work and a ton of researching effort. For those of us who are working to reach and serve as many people as possible, this looks like you might have found the magic Sarah! Great job!

    Lindsey, I was thinking the same thing. I look at Pinterest as a "just for me" thing. If others follow along, good for them but I don't need to chase them.

  • Lindsey Morrison

    Silly old me thought it was a nice way to organize all those projects I was actually interested in doing some day, instead of a long list of bookmarks in my browser :P But I treat Facebook like a way to keep in touch with old friends and widespread family, too ;)

Very Good Tip: Boards getting too full? Started off small but grew too huge. An easy way to move groups of Pins to new/ different boards: Let’s say you want to move all your dessert Pins to a board of their own. Here’s how: 1. Go to any of your boards on the web 2. Click Move Pins 3. Select up to 50 Pins to move 4. Pick another board for them .. Can also copy Pins so they live on multiple boards, or delete groups of Pins if you’re in serious clean-up mode.

    I get that. My first thought is that the "pins for you" are to be chosen by you if you like them. I could be wrong -- but I don't think they are automatically pinned to any of your boards... but good question.. I agree, the garbaaje sent my way confirms and verifies to me, that Pinterest's auto system does not work! + some of the people that follow me - I would never follow -- interesting though.

    How can delete ALL the "picked for you" pins that show up? They really are poor matches for even my eclectic taste. Just because it's something someone once cooked or ate, doesn't mean I will cook it or eat it. And the weaving choices ... pul-lease, you have no idea how long I've been weaving so I don't need to see everything a five year old can do with yarn. Just let me know how to ditch the pins picked for me, bless their hearts.

9 Reasons You Should Be Deleting Your Pins - not sure I could do all this, but good points!

  • Penney Stone

    How? I just hit a wrong page n have a nude man on a beach.reported it but cant delete.!

how to use pinterest

  • Willa Dawne

    LOL -- of course, the judgement of "rude" is my opinion ... someone else probably thinks it's fine! :-)

  • Willa Dawne

    @ Jen -- I could do without the second one flipping us off, but, um, no, neither of them is porn. I don't see why butt cheeks would be considered porn. I've had over a dozen of my pics removed from pinterest, some of which were nude sculptures, some of which were pics of breast cancer survivors -- all of which I was told were pornographic. I'd have no problem with a 10 year old seeing the first pic you posted. The second is just rude.

  • Jen Watson my 10 year old sister stumbled on that, and I've reported it several times but I guess it doesn't qualify as porn. neither does this? whatever.

  • Jen Watson

    I use pinterest to search for new content, not just to manage my own bookmarks. it doesn't happen often, but there are some people who think uploading porn is totally fine. when I report those pins, they never disappear. I remember stumbling across one guy's page, which was like 100 pictures of naked women. I think it still exists today.

  • Willa Dawne

    Thanks for this! To the folks who want to report other people's pins -- what's offensive to me might not be offensive to you (and vice versa) -- why be the censors & thought police? Worry about your own content and only follow people whose content you like. I'm sick of the more-puritan-than-thou attitude of some pinners... No porn, yeah that makes sense, but I've had pics of unclothed statues reported. For every person who thinks something is "offensive" there is someone who doesn't. Don't want me to start reporting people's offensive and girl-repressing Ward President quotes, I'm sure. But I certainly wouldn't want my kid reading them!!!

hahaha i would die -- Drive a girl insane, delete her #pinterest board. (And get your free backup from, so it never happens to you!)

STOP PINTEREST CENSORSHIP > I would say Pinterest should SOLVE their censorship problem. Is it so hard to code a button that would filter or allow adult content? Everyone one would have a choice. I believe giving users a CHOICE is what's at the heart of this matter. -YM
