Community guidelines 


The Pinterest Business Community is a group of advertisers, small businesses and creators who exchange best practices, tips and tricks, solutions and Pinterest product information. 

By using this community, you agree to Pinterest’s Terms of Service as well as the following guidelines:

1. Be respectful 

To make sure everyone has a positive experience, always use kind and considerate language when communicating with other community members. Discussing ideas and sharing feedback is welcome, but we do not allow any insults or harassment on community forums or in private messaging. Remember to be helpful, say thank you, and encourage great content. We’re all here to help encourage and support each other, so let’s keep it that way!

2. Keep it constructive

Community forums are designed to help members find tips and solutions they need. When you reply to a specific thread, stick to the thread’s original topic. This makes forums and threads more useful for everyone.  If you want to talk about a different topic, start a new thread to do it 

3. Be appropriate 

Hate speech will not be tolerated in the Pinterest Business Community. This includes attacks on people based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition. You also must not target people based on their age, weight, immigration or veteran status. You must not reveal anyone’s personally identifiable information, and must not request it from any minor. Any content determined to be bullying will be removed. 

4. Don’t spam 

The Pinterest Business Community is meant to create real connections, so no spamming is allowed. Any spam or spam-like content will be removed, including: 

  • Unsolicited commercial or advertising messages
  • Repetitive or duplicate posts, even if it’s across multiple threads
  • Links that redirect to a different domain
  • Misleading content

5. Keep your private stuff private 

Remember that people in the community can see things you share, so don’t post sensitive information about yourself or others. For example, you shouldn’t share personally identifiable information like email addresses or social security numbers. Make sure you comply with copyright, fair use and intellectual property laws, as well as any other applicable laws. Always cite sources when needed and don’t publish anyone else’s material without their consent. 

6. Help keep the community safe 

Report issues or any violations of our guidelines directly to the Community Manager by choosing “Report Inappropriate Content” from the message’s Options menu. It’s all of our jobs to keep our community safe so if you see something, say something.

If you’re new to the community and need some help or have questions about our terms, policies or guidelines, please reach out to either of your community managers.  


You may see some community members who have the Pinterest logo next to their username. This means they are Pinterest employees or moderators.While they may be available to help with support-related questions, for account-specific issues or if you need immediate assistance with your Pinterest account, please reach out directly to our support team. Please note that the Pinterest Business Community is primarily a peer-to-peer community. 

By using these forums, you agree to follow these rules as well as Pinterest’s Terms of Service and other policies.  

If you recognize any violation of our Copyright Policy, please follow the process outlined here for providing notice.

Keep in mind that Pinterest does not prescreen all information submitted by community members before it’s posted. Pinterest reserves the right to remove or modify User Content, or change the way it’s used in Pinterest, for any reason. This includes User Content that we believe violates these Terms, our Community Guidelines, or any other policies.

Hello! Thanks for the information. Can you suggest or write an article on how can I attach my site to the pinterest account directly?


Hey there, @softkeyscom1. Try checking out this thread! There's some step-by-step instructions a fellow community member shared. You can also look at this article, too. 🙂 


Hello, how can I @share my Pinterest account with others so that they can click and find it?






Es ist eine Zeit, dabei ohne Worte um der Selbsstwillen. Was will ich damit? Freude und etwas gut zu tun haben bewegungen erzeugt dessen im Grunde nur der eine Mensch erzeuge. Von wegen die Masse bewege. Darum deine Pin Andreas


Hello @PinterestGabby First thank you for all that you do. I see many people 

1. Asking people to follow them

2. Promoting content that leads back to their website. I have a ton of tips on my blog and I have free courses as well but I never mention them in my posts. 

Aren't these all self-promotion? 

Please clarify. I can also give you some examples via private message.
