Pinterest is an increasingly popular site that allows users to create virtual pinboards of images and videos. These pinboards can be used for anything, from a collection of recipes to a visual diary of life events. Unfortunately, it’s also possible for users to post pornographic and offensive content on their boards.
When exploring the site, most users want to find images that are appropriate for all ages and aren’t immediately confronted with adult material. Therefore, “porn pins” should be flagged so other users can be aware when browsing through the site.
At Pinterest, user safety is a top priority which is why they take steps to limit any inappropriate content on the platform. To keep Pinterest as a safe place, they have developed an automated system which monitors content being uploaded and makes sure it conforms with their usage guidelines. Additionally, when searching within the ‘explore’ tab there will be parental controls that restrict certain types of content from appearing – this ensures everyone feels secure when using Pinterest.
Moreover, anyone can report pins that may contain sensitive or explicit material directly to Pinterest itself if required. They have an internal team dedicated to issue resolution who will then review reported pins in order to ensure only appropriate content is shared on their platform. If necessary they will remove any pins that don’t comply with their terms and conditions – making sure others don’t come across any lewd images or videos whilst browsing!
In closing, Pinterest has placed considerable effort into creating a safe space where people can view artwork, clip recipes and gather inspirational ideas without having to worry about coming across any porn pins during their search. The site does however recognise that what some people consider inappropriate varies greatly – so if you encounter something offensive you can take action by reporting it directly or making use of the parental control feature in order to avoid seeing further objectionable material!
