Pinterest gives users tools to block and report nudity

Pinterest rolls out user blocking, flagging, and reporting


Having millions of users and being one of the top three social-networking sites can come with its negatives. For Pinterest, these downsides entail users pinning banned items that include nudity, pornography, attacks on a group or individual, graphic violence, hateful speech or symbols, self-harm promotion, and spam.

Available on the same menu on a person’s profile is our new report user feature. In addition to the ability to report a pin, you can now report an entire user’s profile which you believe needs review. When you report a user on Pinterest, we send an alert to our Community team to review the account.

Nudity and porn are considered equal by Pinterest in their new blocking tool.
