One of the challenges with Pinterest is tailoring your board so that you only see the type of images you want to see, and don’t see those you don’t want to see.
For example, not long ago, one of the guys who I follow posted 40-50 pictures of bacon every day for a week. (What IS it with men and bacon these days, anyway? I know it tastes good, but this is becoming ridiculous!)
Then, a couple of days ago, another guy started posting multiple pictures of scantily-clad women every day. Not only did that make me uncomfortable, but I’m not really interested in having my wife walk in and ask me what I was doing…
So, how do you get rid of pictures that people are posting that you don’t want to see?
Until Pinterest improves its filtering capabilities, it comes down to either unfollowing the individual doing the posting or unfollowing the board that’s not working for you.
Here’s a 3-minute video that demonstrates exactly how to do it.

Thank You, pretty well-pointed, Don!
Pity there’s no any real way to remove a follower
anyone will avoid like pest, while Pinterest simply
ping-ponging back their answer… sorta ‘mhmn,
we might will develop such app for some day…’
Looks like must to happen something really grave out there, or what…
Nonetheless for now, I’m obligated to change almost all my virtual
identity to stay online but avoid actual harassment …phew!
My Pinterest is actually abandoned orphan, cannot pin nor
make any movement over there….
Oh, although it sounds alike, but please stay assured,
I’m not any paranoid! LOL
So, Don, if you would be able to find out a way,
how to block asome malicious follower,
I am sure you’ll receive much more
THANK YOU than just from me one…
Ditto about the wife/girlfriend walking in leading to awkward conversations! 🙂
Nice, I was actually wondering this myself recently! Who woulda thought Pinterest would be confusing?
Nice tip, Don – thanks…
Thanks a million for this, Don. I have not started with Pinterest yet, but maybe in the next month when I rearrange my whole site. This would have totally uncorked me if I had not visited your site!
simple but effect method to weed the pointless “follows.”i used to click follow all but will choose to follow.just the intetesting boards instead.Thank You Don!
Don–how do you unfollow a group? I unwittingly said yes to a bunch of groups with “inspirational” sayings, etc., and can’t figure out how to get them off my boards that everyone else sees.
Thanks from your long lost relative that you don’t know.
Cool, great tip Don. Thanx:-)
