I had access to the Story Pins feature a few weeks ago, I've used it on two of my Pinterest accounts, creating a couple of story pins on each profile.
Today, after spending half an hour creating a new story pin, I go to upload it and see that access to the feature is no longer there. It has been taken away. I'm no longer able to upload story pins.
I'm based in the UK, if that makes a difference.
Has anyone else had this, or are Pinterest making changes again?
I'd appreciate any insights here.
Note: They did give me the option to request access to the feature, which I did, but I just find it strange that they would give me access and then take it away. I've not made any changes to my profiles or location or anything.
Hey @momoftwolittlegirls, thanks for writing in to the community. We’re always experimenting with new products, and sometimes we remove a product to improve your experience.

I would love to get the feature back. I sent in a request but I still don't have the feature of Story Pins. Is there something I can do to get them? I know others who still have access.
Yeah, I lost access to story pins after about only a week as well. I'm really confused as to why.
I'm based in the Pacific Northwest though, not the UK. I was given the ability to request it, then I got it, then I made some, then it got taken away. Basically the same situation as you.
Yeah, I just started my business account and would like to create a story pin. I have watched many videos on how to request one but I just don't seem to have the story pin option. I will be waiting, I'm just hoping it gets updated soon.
