Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Pinterest is like a digital pinboard that people use to share, save, and categorize images and ideas for everything from crafting, tattoos, and photography to cooking, decorating, and collecting stuff. Although most pins people post are pretty clean, there’s some not-for-kids stuff that teens may happen across (pins that include nudity in the tattoo category, for example); and they will definitely find iffy stuff if they intentionally search for it. In some instances, Pinterest links to other sites, and some of those may contain content that’s inappropriate for teens. Users can create a Pinterest account via a Facebook account or an email address.

Pinterest is a  app that is designed for those 14.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Pinterest is highly visually engaging. It’s well organized by topics and subtopics, which makes searching for information or just randomly browsing within a particular subject area easy and absorbing. Creating your own boards is empowering and fun.

The Support Level for Pinterest is about a 3 out of 5.

The help center (found under app settings) includes an overview guide, a browsing section to search for specific help, and a “fix a problem” tab for troubleshooting.

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
