For teens

Pinterest isn’t a social network, but it is a powerful search tool. Be thoughtful about what you decide to share, and remember that there are ways to keep some things private. Before saving or commenting, remember that your words and Pins have power, and can be found by potential colleges, employers, family and friends.

Just like in the real world, it’s never okay for an adult to ask you for personally identifying information, nude photos or sexual favors. If this is happening, please report it and get in touch with us.

If you’re dealing with a difficult situation, remember that help is available. Talk to friends, parents, a school counselor or a therapist. There are also many organizations that offer confidential and free help. We also have resources about self harm and suicide and harassment and cyberbullying.
