Hmm – well

still interested to hear what photographers are using Pinterest for…if anything… that said if you were thinking nudity and Pinterest go together.. read on…

So I read the entire TOS and there was nothing about nudity in it that I could find…

So I put "nude" in the search box on Pinterest and got the below warning – well and about 1000 posts for nude colored shoes – clearly with the link it clearly shows that Nudity is not allowed on Pinterest… which is odd seeing in the first 5 minutes of looking at it I have seen more boobies on one page than I have in a month here on G+…

I will just assume it is about the definition of the word "may"……

But then dig deeper and find this:

Report Objectionable Content:

We do not allow nudity, hateful content, or content that encourages people to hurt themselves. If you find content that violates our Terms of Service or Acceptable Use Policy you can submit the content for review by pushing the ”Report Content“ link.

Maybe I do not get Pinterest – it seems its an interesting way to share images but it also seems like a viral avenue for images – well really for that matter anything to be repinned and compleatly lose control of a persons content..

Do not get me wrong – I am not sure thats bad or good – I know for some it is bad and others it is good.. but I think I will stick here for now and concentrate on my very cool followers here…. well and more so my friends here…I am not sure they have a very personal interface, just more of a sharing portal…

Best part is there are hundreds of pages like this:

Ha – NSFW by the way:

Nudity is a crime……!

    The words pin and genitalia should not occur in the same sentence. That is all.
