Can you believe that forty years ago, smartphones didn’t exist? There was no way for people to angrily call your friend from the hall, asking them why they’re always so late. No way to call and ask your mom how much salt that recipe needs or to ask your brother where he kept your book. The rapid development of smartphones has brought about one of the most drastic changes in human life.
The unbelievable part is we don’t even realize the extent to which it has affected our life, for better or worse. Awareness is the first step to proper understanding and control, right?
Smartphones were created to make our work easier and less time-taking so that we could focus on more development and spend lesser time on research. However, we’ve done the stark opposite of that: we focused more on smartphones, almost too much.
Instead of using technology as a resource to be properly utilized and treasured, we’ve created cheap entertainment on it. Games, e-books, OTT apps, and social media platforms: all these were unnecessary creations made for entertaining us when we were bored.
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about whether or not you can see who viewed your Pinterest profile. Stick with us until the end of this blog to learn all about it!
Can You See Who Viewed Your Pinterest Profile?
Pinterest is one of the most aesthetic social media platforms. Not only the content but the overall app design itself provides a unique experience. The platform is strict with its users’ privacy and doesn’t take any risks with it.
There’s no option or feature on Pinterest that can help you see who has seen your Pinterest profile. However, you can monitor other users’ activity on your profile. For example, if they like, share, or comment on any of your pins, you’ll be notified.
However, if you have a Business account on Pinterest, you’ll still learn a lot about your current audience in the form of demographics. This includes the average age of the users who visit your profile, their rough location, and the devices most used to access your profile.
There’s much more that you can learn about your audience if you own a Business account.
How to create a secret board on Pinterest?
Having covered whether or not you can see who has seen your Pinterest profile, let’s now move on to how to create a secret board on Pinterest.
A secret board can be that set of interests you don’t wish to share with everyone. You can invite some people to view the board, but that’s about it. You can turn a public board into a secret board anytime you like.
If you have a large presence, it’s almost important to have a secret board filled with personal topics that might give away who you are or where you live.
Here’s how to create a secret board on Pinterest
Step 1: Launch Pinterest on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll land on is your Pinterest Home screen. At the bottom, you’ll see five icons. Tap on the icon at the bottom right corner, which is a thumbnail of your profile picture.
Step 3: This will bring you to your profile. Under the Created and Saved tab, you’ll see a search bar. To its right, you’ll see a plus (+) icon. Tap on it.
Step 4: A pop-up menu with three options: Idea Pin, Pin, and Board. Tap on the third option.
Step 5: On the next page, you’ll see an option called Keep this board secret with a toggle button next to it. By default, it is turned off. Turn it on, and you’re good to go.
