Pinterest News – Blocked Pin

I have a Pin Board on Pinterest – Art & Sculpture. I found a Street Art from Mexico interesting, and wanted to share it on the social media, including Pinterest. But I was surprised when Pinterest blocked this pin for our safety, and I would like to share my experience with you.

This is the post that I wanted to share on Pinterest:

Street Art in Tijuana

When I tried to pin the above Street Art post on January 31, 2014, and again today, I failed to pin it on both the occasions.

The Pinterest gave the following Pinterest Error:

This pin contains a link or text that we do not allow. We have blocked this pin for your safety.

Blocked Pin

Basically this means that Pinterest does not like the links or texts in this post. I don’t find anything objectionable either in the image or in the text of this post. I have pinned many street art images from the same source without any problem.

It was successfully published on other networks like Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.

Have you faced such a problem? If yes, please share your experience on this blog post.

Social Media consists of media that support and encourage social interaction among users. For instance, online discussion forums are designed to allow people to post messages and for other users to respond in kind.
While there may be social aspects to any medium (e.g. links to share an article by email), social media typically refers to those media whose major functions are oriented toward sharing of information, and consequently most of the information on such media are generated by users. Common examples of social media sites are Twitter and Facebook.
Social media marketing is the process of promoting your site or business through social media channels.
