How many boards can you have?

I know a couple of years ago there was a limit to how many boards you could have on your Pinterest account (and I don't think it mattered whether it was business or personal) and if memory serves... it was 300 (or so).

Is that still true? Is there any recommended amount of boards per account?

I checked the Pinterest help center, but I couldn't find any reference to this topic... anyone know the answer(s)?

Hi there below is the info verbatim on Pinterest Help:

 
You can have up to 500 boards, 200,000 Pins. You can follow up to 50,000.

To keep Pinterest running smoothly, there's a limit to the total number of Pins, boards, and follows we can store for accounts.

You can have up to:

  • 2,000 boards, including secret boards and group boards you didn't create
  • 200,000 Pins, including secret Pins and your Pins on group boards for personal accounts
  • 50,000 user follows

If you’re already following 50,000 people, you can only continue to follow people who already follow you. There’s no limit to how many people can follow you.

If you get an error that you hit a limit, try deleting some Pins or boards or unfollowing people.
