Parents need to know that Pinterest is a photo-sharing site. To join this digital pin-board site and app, you need to either enter a username and password or sign up using Facebook. People use Pinterest to share, save, and categorize images and ideas for everything from crafting, tattoos, and photography to cooking, decorating, and collecting stuff.
There’s no language, violence, or drug filter to be found on the site either, so it’s entirely possible that kids can be exposed to mature content. Users will also have to worry about being exposed to various product shots and ads that are constantly posted across user boards.
