Pinterest Now Lets You Block and Report Users

Pinterest has added a new feature that lets you block and report users.  Users can flag specific pins and report entire profiles.  Pinterest software engineer Dannie Chu wrote “People use Pinterest to discover new ideas and be inspired by a community who share similar interests. We’ve recently added the ability to block and report a user to help keep our community positive and respectful.”

Pinterest has banned content like inappropriate and “hateful” propaganda.  However a lot of users are able to slip through the cracks and post inappropriate content on the pinboard social network website.  This is a great way to filter the social network if you are worried about kids.
