The more you use Pinterest, the more likely it is that other people will find you. If you've got great taste and interesting Pins and boards, they might even follow you! Your follower count is simply the number of other people that follow you (or one of your boards). 
 
The number of followers you have may increase or decrease because the number of people on Pinterest is always changing.
 
Your notifications tell you about all the recent activity on your account. That means if Jane follows you today and 14 other people also followed you recently, your notification will say “Jane and 14 others followed you” and your follower count will only increase by 1 today.
 
If you're seeing slowed or decreased follower activity, there's nothing wrong with your account. We are constantly trying out new things to help you discover things you love on Pinterest. One way we do this is by changing the algorithms that determine how profiles and boards show in search, email recommendations, new user education, and Picked for you Pins. These likely account for any changes you might be seeing.
 
NoteWe don’t notify you when someone stops following you, when someone deactivates their account or when we remove an account for spammy behavior or for violating our policies.
