Default Pinterest card pins

About two weeks ago my home feed is crazy full of adds. I pin 99% of card related things.No matter I report spam or not relevant it only gets worse. I checked home feed which is what it should be.
contacted Pinterest twice without a responce.

I barely get any posted cards ……each day less and less. Any ideas out there.
Thanks in advance.

ugh. I am getting a lot of ads too on my feed. I just keep telling them I have no interest. It helps but does not stop them.

Some time ago I stopped getting feed from people I follow-very disappointing.

This is exactly what I am encountering. I guess they don’t care to respond. I am also not getting any pins for people I follow

unless more complain they probably won’t respond as I suspect they are making money off these adds compared to what you and I use this site for.

I am sure there are more than you and I experiencing this and perhaps they have not contacted Pinterest. They don’t even care when you report spam.
thanks for replying so I know it’s. Not something I am doing.

It's the same for me, too. I've come to the point where I only use Pinterest when I am searching for something in particular, but even then I am getting ads. I don't think my homepage is showing any pins from those people that I follow.

I've also been frustrated with Instagram due to the ads. I quit IG for some time because of them, thought I'd go back to it and now it seems like everything on my feed is IG videos or ads...

I am convinced that there are many more who have chosen Not to contact Pinterest.Interesting as well that if you play solitaire or scrabble there are also much more adds.

if my feed is right then the problem is with their system.
whether Spam, irrelevant to me, or not a language I understand…….. gets no attention.

I too am not getting people I follow .

I have in mind to contact them and flat out lie, that this has caught the attention of social media and people are not happy. I wonder that would grab their attention 😂

For me this is not new, about a year ago I routinely started clicking on my FOLLOWING list and browsing their ALL PINS folder. When an advertisement annoys me I click SEE THIS TOO OFTEN and that works for a while. HTH

I would click on not appropriate but I feel that is excessive for normal ads-I just dont want to see them. But it does work-I will do that for some.

Oh it isnt just you Canada goose. I have heard a lot of people have left social media bc of that.

It does not seem to matter what you click on ……they say tune your feed.
it must be automated because if they were monitoring the site they would see a whole slew of not interested etc being selected or not a language I don’t understand.
also the duplication of pins Your delete seems to multiply by the number you delete.

I have noticed over last couple of days, my feed will list some cards then turns into a huge number of things I would never be interested in.So i am scrolling down quickly to get back to cards. This site is certainly not what it started out to be, and appears to have no moderators or people policing site,just a bunch of automated answers.

I just noticed that 503 people have read this post. However hard to believe only a couple of people have responded. Those that are having same problem.

just noticed and wondered how many people this thread resonated with, or simple curiosity to see what the thread said. Just thinking😀

I have been having this same problem for years. My feed is literally mostly adds. No pins from people I follow. I have to do a specific search for what I am looking for. Pinterest used to be so nice. Its a shame what has happened to it.

Agree with all the comments, Facebook is also full of ads, many of them are scams. I rarely log in to either site, not on any others either.

Canada Goose, how can you tell how many have viewed this post? I'm rather computer illiterate but I'll write my experience with Pinterest: I don't Follow anyone. I don't know how, and don't know why one would do that. I open Pinterest and they throw out things similar to posts I have viewed or saved. VERY few ads, ever! I search by name, for cards using stamp sets I have, or general themes like Autumn. I search for recipes by name in general "Lemon muffins" or some such.
I truly get very few ads to delete. Maybe it's part of their system when you Follow? I LOVE PINTEREST.

well you can tell how many views becausePinterest posts the number next to the number of replies.

As I stated initially this is something that has just occurred recently. I have been on Pinterest for quite a few years without this happening. You can see by the replies I am not the only one experiencing this problem.

I wish It was from people I follow …….. but many are in a language I don’t understand or things I would never have the slightest interest.in.
I hope you continue to enjoy Pinterest without being bombarded by adds.

I don't actually 'follow' pins either - but I sure do get annoyed when I type in a specific search and get ALL kinds of pins: food, jokes, verses, etc. along with my actual search. I am on it less and less.. used to use it all the time for ideas for my cards but have been getting so frustrated with all the other junk I barely jump on Pinterest anymore.

I agree with everything you are saying It’s so frustrating considering how good it used to be for this site.

after reading the responses here, I know it’s not something wrong with my end.
I don’t know why they even bother to ask you why you want to report “ irrelevant “ or other reasons for not wanting to see pins. What is the point if they ignore them or do not have the curtesy of a reply when you contact them.
I also no longer enjoy Pinterest.

You asked why a person would follow someone...
Let's say i want to be kept aware of the cards you make and post.
Lot of reasons to follow.
But my follow is not working either. I just go into my account and click on the couple of people I am interested in.

wavejumper. I just reread my posts. I can’t find one where I ask “ why a person would follow someone”:
did you mean something else?

I did mention that many had read my post but few responded. I was asking because I was curious as to how many others were having the same problem With adds.
I probably should have asked “too many adds posted on Pinterest?” in retrospect.

i have bookmarked people I follow and have subscribed to just a very few..
I guess we just have to deal with the way they are running the site now.

I unsubscribed from Pinterest several years ago. I am now a "lurker only." This works for me.
