One of the biggest photo sharing social networks, if Pinterest went down today it would mean those that share photos across millions of blogs, within mobile apps, and those using these visual bookmarks will be greatly impacted by the outage.


Problems with Pinterest can involve issues with getting boards to work, or even the whole website not working. One of the standard messages offered when something goes wrong normally states, “Sorry. We’ve let our engineers know”.

If you don’t know much about Pinterest, then in a nutshell it’s a social service that allows you to share and collect photos within boards. You pin them to new boards, or existing ones. If you already know this picture network well and use it, but have problems today, then you will see if others also share your frustrations below.
