    I absolutely HATE the new Pinterest set up. I find it totally uninspiring to see a partial picture with four more which may or may not work with the one larger one. I have been a Pinterest "queen” with 139 boards, 16,775 post and 677 followers (which I am sure is not accurate because that number has not changed in ages). I enjoyed looking on the left-hand side to see who was pinning from my boards and had gotten to the point where I knew a lot of them with similar taste. I would see their names and check out what was new with them. I also took the time to write a note/comment to those who wrote one to me. I lived overseas many years and found it lovely to touch base with people from all over the world. Shame on Pinterest they have stolen my joy. I do not know if I will continue. Where can I write to complain effectively?
