Pinterest- Urgent Question

(11 Posts)
NameChangeFamousFolk Sun 22-Oct-17 18:11:14

I use Pinterest every now and then, but not a big user by any means. For a work project that needs to be completed tonight, I need to look at pins in various categories that have been repinned more than 1000 times.

I thought there was a counter thing in the corner of each Pin, but it's not there, and I have absolutely zero idea how to do this. I've Googled it several times and sent message to their FB page but no joy - I keep getting answers about how to get more Pins and the like.

Can anyone give some guidance? Much appreciated, thanks.

My instinct is that they took away the public repin counter in the first big update a few months ago; but I could be wrong!

If nobody knows for sure; I’ll have a look through the update guides - I’ll have them on my work email somewhere I think.

There used to be a counter, not there any more.
If you click on a pin, then scroll down a bit, it says "Saved to x boards ".

Yes the counter has gone, so has the like button. Also can't easily see where the pin is from or the comments. They call this improvements??

Thanks, I can't see this though. I can see where a couple people comment or try it, but no numbers as such saying how many boards it's saved to.

Just experimented - I can see the pin count on my iPad but not on my phone.
You can do a search for "popular pins", might make the task easier!

Thanks again, but I don't seem able to search within the categories?

Does anyone else have any bright ideas? This job is urgent and totally reliant on being able to do this...I"m trying not to panic grin

If you go to the ‘popular’ catagory it still has the pin count in the corner (on my iPhone it does anyway) but that’s just one catagory. There is every catagory of pin in there though.

Actually I can see it in all categories.

It’s there on my iPad too.

How weird! I've tried on my phone, Mac and laptop, and no flipping pin count!!! Driving me mad!
