Why is there spam on Pinterest?
What we do with spam
What to do if you see spam
As Pinterest grows, our site becomes a more attractive place for spammers. The technology we use to fight spam gets better every day, but it's possible you'll encounter spam while using Pinterest.
Spammers sometimes create Pins with misleading links or follow you hoping you'll visit their profile and click on their Pins. We regularly find and remove these spammy accounts.
You don't need to be concerned if you see spam on Pinterest or if a spammy account follows you. But you can let us know about the spam by reporting the Pins to us.
