I don’t know about you but lately I have dreaded getting on Pinterest because of all the PICKED FOR YOU PINS that show up in my feed. I go to Pinterest to see the pretty things from the people I follow, not to see what Pinterest thinks I want to see. There are days that over 50% of the pins are not from my choice of friends and bloggers.
It was quite discouraging and has made me stay away from Pinterest all together, but I was having withdrawals and needed to come up with a solution. So after much research I found an extension that can be added to my browser or phone to eliminate the PICKED FOR YOU PINS, insert happy dance here.
I thought others might be interested in how this can be done, so here it goes.
- Follow this link PIN BLOCK
- Click on the extension that fits the browser or phone operating system you are using
- Install the extension
- Sit back and enjoy Pinterest again.
Wow, how simple is that? It takes under 3 minutes for the whole process and you can return to Pinterest without seeing all that unwanted stuff. Hurray! I am back to surfing Pinterest again and actually enjoying it.
Update: I do notice every once in awhile a few, like under 5, still sneak in but nothing like before.
