Notifications basics

Notifications are in the top right of Pinterest, right next to your name. When you have new notifications, you'll see a number in the notifications bubble - just click it to see them. 




Notifications tell you when someone Pins, likes or comments on your Pins, follows you or one of your boards, or mentions you in a comment.




Edit notifications

You can choose to get notifications when anyone interacts with your Pinterest account or only when people you follow do.

To change your notification settings:

  1. Click the notifications bubble and click Edit
  2. Pick your setting
  3. Click Save 
Note: Pinners with more than 5000 followers will default to receiving notifications from only people they follow
