Repins Showing Up as "Created" by Us - showing analytics and comments are coming to us -HUGE ISSUE

Highlighted
Just visiting

And all of a sudden whenever we repin someone else's pins to certain boards on our page through Tailwind or directly it pins them as "created" by  us  and puts them on the new CREATED tab - and thus tracks analytics as if they are our pins and comments come to us rather than the originator of the pin. (see below for Tailwind's response)

We have one board that is "Pins We Love From Other Low FODMAP Bloggers" that is all of a sudden now almost 90%  of the pins are showing up as "created" by us, rather than just re-pinned by us. So they are all showing analytics data, and the comment readers are making are showing up in our comment feed, and not the original pinners feed. And it's not consistent. Some of the pins we repin show up the way they should - attributed to the original pin creator and no analytics showing. But most are now posting as if we created them. Anyone else having this issue? 

 

This is a close up of one of the pins we repinned that is now attributed to us as having created it. With analytics showing. Close up of repinned pin showing up as created by us - with analytics.Close up of repinned pin showing up as created by us - with analytics.

 

This is our Created tab - showing the repin above.

This is a screen shot from our "Other Pinners We Love" board which is ALL repins. See how its now showing most of them as "created" by us? And we can see analytics and the comments on these are coming to us rather than the originator of the pin.

Tailwind's support tech responded with: 

Our engineers have looked into this and we have had our Pinterest Product Specialist look at this as well. The 'create' tab is new and it is still not rolled out on everyone's account so how it is tracking may also change in the future. We are working on our end to ensure that we are in alignment with the changes. However, the way the Pins are categorized on Pinterest itself is not something we are able to view or change. 

If you have specific questions about how Pinterest is categorizing repins from third-party apps like Tailwind going forward, you may want to contact Pinterest directly.
