I’ve been getting some questions about spam accounts on Pinterest. People seem to be worried about spammers following them, but that doesn’t really matter as long as you don’t follow them back or click-through their pins to the original web page. This post from the Pinterest blog explains how to report spammers.
Pin Watch is a new resource that will help you identify spam accounts and feel safer about your activities on Pinterest. Pin Watch is a group of pinners on the lookout for spammers, scammers and thieves on Pinterest. They call it neighborhood watch for Pinterest. You can follow their Pinterest boards and their Twitter account for more information.
