    Need help with Pinterest

    I finally broke down and decided to try Pinterest. As part of the registering process, they have you choose a few pictures you 'like'. Well I did that, not that they anything I would have really picked myself or followed, and now I find I am following several people that I do not want to be! And there seems to be no way to unfollow them. I am ready to quit before starting. Is there a way around this? I only registered because my daughter is starting to pin wedding ideas.

    oh dear... don't give up on Pinterest just yet. Its really a wonderful invention and very useful. If you go to the person's name, click on it, there should be a button in the center of page at the top that says unfollow. If you click on that it should stop you from following that person. Hope this works for you.

    do a search for quilts or quilting to see thousands of beautiful quilt photos!

    When I go into Pinterest I found that there was a bunch of stuff and people there too. After time they went away, but I found at the top of the page under the red Pinterest there were options~Following Categories Everything Popular Gifts I click on Following and there are the people I am following. See if this helps. My followings are mostly quilts.....dozens of them. I Love Pinterest.

    Go onto Pinterest, click on your name & you should see icons for "Followers"& "following". If you click on "following " you will see all of the people you are following & there is a spot where you can "unfollow" someone. I ended up following a few people that I had no idea how & I was able to unfollow them.

    Just unfollow the ones you don't want to follow.

    I love Pinterest. I have found so many links to awesome quilting blogs. And the variety of beautiful quilts is amazing. I also use it for recipes, books, etc.

    Oh, I am so glad to see this thread! I joined some time ago and had the same question as the original poster. Went back in today and it looks like I'm not following anything. I know this isn't rocket science lol, but just what are we supposed to do here? I'm interested primarily in quilting. Any advice as to what to do next?
