I have been using Pinterest for years and will continue to do so.
I wanted to not a couple of things and this seems to be the only place I can provide feedback.
1- you need a feedback option on the site and app. I would like to provide feedback on features and suggestions but there is no way to provide it.
2- There should be options to control volume. The problem comes when I try to look at a video and the sound immediately comes on. This is not desired.
I want to be able to chose whether I want to listen to something and at what volume.
You can also put an option to control the volume in the settings. Set up a way to always allow a sound to automatically play or not. You can even give an option at what level the sound can play.
If a person is looking at a video, they should be able to mute and control sound. There are certain features that have been added that do not give you the choice to control the sound.
3- Insert search functions when you are pinning to a board. For individuals like myself who has an extensive list of boards, scrolling can be a bit tedious. Allowing me to type in a search when I am pinning would be great.
4- Adding search functions into boards and folders would be great to. Sometimes I am looking for something in particular and can have a really difficult time searching for it.
5- Add a note feature to my pins. This would be a great function for me to have when I’m planning my projects, shopping, etc. this can have an option to be kept private or public.
6- To add to number six, adding a function when planning that will allow me to pin or paste alternatives that I find in real life would be great! If I am looking for a couch, and I find similar items while shopping, allowing me to edit my notes with pictures, links, and notes would be great.
I understand that every business has to make money, however I feel that Pinterest is a shadow of its former self. I now use my Pinterest account to store things I find on the internet. They have no useful content for me anymore. If I search home decor, I only get suggestions from Home Depot, Walmart or some “Blogger” (really a business) that is paying for advertisements. I search for breakfast, I select a pin and the pins below are no longer similar to the selected pin. They are now pins showing shoes that I pinned, shoes that I assume are from a business paying for advertisements, because they try to force the pin down my throat. I had to delete the app which was inconvenient for saving web pages but I couldn’t take it.Also, Pinterest and Etsy must have some sort of business partnership because they are constantly showing me things from Etsy. I could search for some destination pin and Etsy pins are being suggested. Pinterest even changed the website that I had a dress pinned from. I believe the dress maker must have started paying for advertisement and changed it from their retailers link to their own. I know this because I had already bought the dress. These sort of changes affect “me” the consumer. That webpage was not the one I intended to save. My real point is that I no longer like Pinterest especially not the app. If they offered a pay for monthly subscription, I would prefer this. That way I could use their portal as a way to streamline my thoughts and use it more as a pretty cloud storage space. Other than that I’m trying to start saving links that are really important to me so I can decrease my use of this service. The app is truly unhealthy and only serves to try and make customers compulsively consume products; like little pigs gobbling slop
Ok Pinterest is a AMAZING APP
like seriously its great
I would’ve gave this a 5 star rating but I have some concerns
So idk if these happen to everyone but it’s annoying
1. It gives me notifications even though my friends said nothing to me and it’s very annoying. Sometimes it’ll spam me with notifications even though my friend didn’t even respond back to me
2. OK THIS IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FOR ME
so basically you can text friends right? WELL every single time I text a new person and then 5 seconds later it’ll show a red bar (I forgot what it said sorry) AND DELETE MY ACC! This happens EVERY SINGLE TIME AND IM SO DONE WITH IT. If I try to log in to that acc it’ll show a red bar (again I forgot what it said) and I would have to make a brand new acc and start all over again. No joke this literally happened 15 times-
Once again I’m not sure if this happens to everyone but it’s happening to me. Please do something about this Pinterest
I love Pinterest and can spend hours on it at a time. There are so many cool photos and communities on it! Although it’s fun and a great creative outlet, I find that my boards glitch a lot. For example I have one board that doesn’t allow me to see the “more ideas section”. It’s been like this for a few days so I cleared my cache and re-downloaded the app, but that didn’t work. I’ve even tried to recreate the board, but for some reason it glitched the same way the second time. The same thing happens on my computer. I have another board that has a similar problem. I can click the “more ideas” option, but whenever I do it doesn’t show any pins; only ads. Can you please fix these issues Pinterest? It would make the app and a much better experience. I also suggest a shuffle option to mix up the photos in our boards, that would be cool. Other than that, this app is a great way to find photos of your favorite things. Definitely recommend!
Pinterest is such a fun and creative way to express yourself!!! I love the app but there are things that I don’t like. First of all, I’ve noticed that in order for an account to get suspended or banned, many people need to report it multiple times. I don’t think that’s safe. If someone is harassing me, I want them to leave me alone. I think an account should be suspended after two to three people report it because sometimes there are serious issues that need to be fixed. I’ve also noticed that this app glitches a lot. I’ve had a red notification signal on my inbox for months but there’s no new notification. And sometimes comments don’t show up on people’s pins unless you put a photo with it. This happens frequently and it’s quite frustrating. But other than that, Pinterest is a great way to spend free time!
I use to send requests for features to be returned to the site via Pinterest’s feature suggestion (I think that’s what it was called), but then that got removed. So I’m here now. Back in about 2018, Pinterest removed the ability to see all the public boards a pin was pinned to. Now, you can’t see which board a pin is even originating from. Please, I really like Pinterest, but removing features like this is really, really, really frustrating and makes it difficult to find what I’m looking for. I would appreciate it if this criticism was listened to, as I’m far from the only one voicing these concerns. Thank you.
EDIT: Now the ability to search for boards on the app is gone. PLEASE stop removing features, I’m begging you.
Pinterest thinks that they can violate our Rights provided by the US Constitution to censor anything they don’t like that goes against their left wing liberal, destroy our freedom opinions. BUT, Pinterest is allowing nudity, sex acts and porn all over the Pinterest site while allowing children under the age of 18 to view pornography freely.
If you have any pins that supports your conservative views then Pinterest will suspend your account. Yet again, Pinterest will allow all of these vile nasty teenage girls that harass your comments and then message you with vile language and hate. Pinterest you must control theses teenagers. No one under the age of 18 should be allowed on Pinterest.
i’ve used this app for about five years. i’ve never really had a complaint. all of the changes that have come my way have either been welcome or left me feeling indifferent. however I have an iphone, and whenever I swipe down from the corner to use the control center, my feed refreshes, and I lose whatever memes I was scrolling through. swiping down to adjust the brightness is just muscle memory now and I usually don’t remember that it’s going to wreck my feed until after the app starts to refresh because no other app with a feed or timeline does this. I love pinterest but this makes me want to throw my phone every time. please.
Pinterest is one of the best apps, but when you swipe over to another board from the for you page, (looking at the recommended ones) it will allow you to click a few then it will refresh after a few seconds. This is something so simple, yet so annoying. All the good pins are on the beginning before the refresh, and it’s like a race against time. I came on Pinterest to just mess around, not participate in the 2021 Pinterest olympics of trying to pin the most pins before it refreshes. This annoys me so much that i put it down to three stars. Pinterest is a wonderful, amazing app, but this feature makes it almost unbearable.
So I have a lot of Pinterest accounts but I keep getting kicked out and on one of them they suspended me for nothing they said there was some spam or fraudulent stuff but I have no idea what it was talking about, I never posted on there I just saved ideas and stuff but they said it was suspended. So yes I do like Pinterest but I am very tired of what they keep doing to me. Please fix this!!! I don’t know if I’m the only one having these problems or not but it’s very annoying and if they do it to you too then you know what talking about. Again developer PLEASE FIX THIS. I will file a complaint if they don’t fix. Thanks
