The Most Common Bugs & Glitches With Pinterest

Pinterest, being just three years old in the social media world, had achieved a lot of users that went up to 25 million in the present. Now, it is even holding the title of the third largest social media site in the World Wide Web. It has offered it users a lot from being a site for socialization up to improving business profits. But just like any other websites, it too has had some bugs and glitches that made users complain for the past years. In this article, some of the bugs and glitches will be discussed to bring awareness to the Pinterest users.
Have you experienced the bug on Pinterest while feed-building? Too bad, this issue has been blamed with the new users of the website. It has been said that the endless “building feed” message is due to new users who had not properly completed the process on registration. To get off this loop you need to by-pass the feed building or go to the Help Desk. To by-pass you have to click on “Popular”, which is located on top of the page you are in, then randomly select any Pinboard, and hit on the pinner’s name, as soon as their profile is open you may click on “Follow All”. Lastly, you will need to click on the “Pinterest” text that is color red on top of the page in line with “Popular”, and voila! You are back at the Pinterest home page.
There is also this complain on the search bar of Pinterest sometimes. Users claim it to be incurably slow. Sad to say, there is none yet cure for the bug but to extend your patience.
Now, have you been using the iPhone Pinterest app, but then you suddenly can’t log in? Check for your version – your app may be out-of-date and need an upgrade. Do that and the problem is solved. But what about when you’re stuck while loading friends? This kind of bug can be easily fixed! You just have to log out of the website and log in again. You may use Facebook to log back in.
There had also been complains last December of 2012 about Pinterest on Mozilla Firefox. Users report an error 404, or otherwise known as “Not Found error message”. This error is actually a HTTP standard code in responding to clients that they were not able to connect with server or that the server was not able to find the page requested. There is still no lucid response about this error on logging in to Pinterest using Mozilla, but there had been rumors that it was just one of the Christmas rush-hour traffic on the site.
Now another complaint that came in loads is about clicking on an image in Pinterest, and then they get pointed to an error page saying that image was removed. Or for some cases, they get taken to a spam website or to another website that’s not related to the pin. This is because the original source of the image does not allow pinning. So, always check for the source first.
Another one of Pinterest’s glitch is the “No Usable Images Found” error. You may get through this by simply using the “Pin it” Bookmarklet tool. Just install it. You may drag then drop the Bookmarklet into the Bookmarks Toolbar. As soon as you have done this, you may now go back to the page where you got the error and then click on the Bookmarklet and there you go! All the images will now appear on the page. Goodbye “No Usable Images Found” error!
So, these are some of the most common bug and glitches that have been crawling with Pinterest. Some of these bugs and glitches mentioned may already be fixed by now and have fled the website.
