I agree! I don’t want people seeing my wedding inspiration! I’m holding back all the real photos I have.. I wish we could keep people from following us! 

 

And good luck and many good thoughts with your husband! I know this feeling all too well (job searching).

Ugh, I’m the same way with wedding stuff. Nobody knows that we are thinking about getting engaged soon, so it was embarassing when people started following my wedding idea board.

I would just make the folder titled “Maybe someday” or something similar just so they don’t jump to conclusions.

Ladies, its time to make ghost accounts- I do NOT want my friends knowing knowing where I got my insperations from ๐Ÿ˜‰

They’re not actually following you necessarily.  Whenever one of your contacts joins pinterest, it follows their friends automatically, whether they view the items or not.

Agreed.  I think it’s really annoying, especially when it’s random fb friends I barely talk to.

Was gonna say the same thing as @Miss Longcoat. It’s kind of awkward, too, because it makes me wonder how many people got e-mails when I joined pinterest telling them that I’m following them…. Pinterest automatically tells Facebook friends you’re following them which is why you get emails about random “friends” following you.

UGH! I feel your pain! We are pregnant and I want to pin all sorts of baby stuff but don’t want any one to get any ideas! So I have been holding back but it has been killing me!

Hmmm…well when I joined pinterest I got to choose which of my facebook friends I wanted to follow…it didn’t automatically follow all of them. Maybe it’s changed though. I agree, I don’t want people all up in my baby board!

Yup. Feel your pain. I have an extreme case of the baby rabies but I don’t want to pin anything just in case people start to make assumptions.

I totally agree… my friend gave me an invite and after a few weeks said “WOW you have a lot of wedding stuff…………..” (not engaged yet, but soon~).  Now I have fb friends I haven’t talked to in years starting to follow me, and I feel self conscious of everything I post!
