Expert Statement

Why Should You Reset Your Pinterest Feed:

There are some changes you might notice if you reset the Pinterest feed:

1. To remove unnecessary suggestions

Resetting your Pinterest feed is a great way to start afresh. Often you get displayed suggestions on your Pinterest feed that are unnecessary and you might not have any interest in those topics. Therefore, if you want to make your feed an interesting one that will show posts based on your new interest, you’ll need to reset the feed. 

Normally, Pinterest shows posts that are based on your previous searches, people you follow, and posts that you’ve published previously. But if that seems rather unnecessary to you, you need to reset the feed so that it can show you pins that you’ve grown a recent interest in. You might not want some suggestions on your feed and for that, reset the feed to get new suggestions. 

2. To unfollow particular channels

Resetting your Pinterest feed is a great way to unfollow certain channels that you don’t want to follow anymore. If you’ve followed certain channels in the past and you’ve lost interest in those pins, you can choose to unfollow them by resetting your feed so that it can only show pins from channels that you’re interested in.

Pinterest organizes your feed based on certain factors like your search history, and pins you’ve looked at and liked in the past, but often it gets filled with all types of pins from channels that you may not be interested in. This can only be removed if you choose to reset your wall. 

If you’ve recently looked at certain content, for example, food recipes, you’ll get a lot of pins based on food recipes. Therefore, you need to clear and reset the feed to stop getting pins related to your recent searches and lookups. 

Can You Remove Suggestions on the Pinterest Feed:

Pinterest feeds generally show suggestions based on your browser history, board, creators that you follow, topics you’re interested in and have searched for, etc. But often it might appear a little off and you might feel the pins that are being displayed to you are boring or of no interest to you.

You can always remove the existing suggestions if you don’t find them helpful. This can be done by deselecting all the topics you’ve chosen and then removing the ones that you’ve no interest in. 

You can also unfollow topics that you follow on Pinterest by getting into your home feed section and from there go to Topics to see the topics you follow. If certain topics are of no interest to you, Remove those.
