How do I unfollow someone on Pinterest?

I’ve recently started using Pinterest and I’m really enjoying sharing my pics. Recently someone has been posting some unsavory pics and I’d like to stop following them. Haven’t figured out how to do that though. Any tips?


Pinterest is a great new medium for sharing photos and it’s actually one of the fastest growing websites ever at the moment. There is a tiny trick you need to know about unfollowing someone though, so let’s see how we can do that.

First of all, let’s have a look at all the people you follow. In order to do this, you need to click on your own name and you’ll be taken to a profile page. In the top right you’ll see a message that looks like: 52 followers 52 following, showing how many people you’re following and how many follow you. Click on the word “following” and you’ll be taken to a screen showing everyone you’re following that looks a bit like this:

Now here’s the thing. Do you see those greyed out “Unfollow” buttons next to the profiles. They’re not actually greyed out! You can click on these to unfollow the person, so go ahead, find the person you want to unfollow and click the button. You’ll be rid of his postings forever!

You can now go back to posting photos of your jewelry deals of the day, your favourite cat photos or anything else you fancy, without having to worry about pics you’re not happy to see.

Hope this helped.
