Chris Stokel-Walker isn’t happy with Pinterest and writes how the company has ruined image search for internet users.
Beloved by moodboard aficionados and wedding planners alike, the platform is hated by rank-and-file web surfers. It’s not that it doesn’t have its purpose; it’s just that it intrudes on the search experience of pretty much everyone who doesn’t want to use it.
I have Pinterest to thank for one thing. My annoyance, and eventual hatred, spurred me to move to a standardized data curation system in which I store files in my own folders and not inside Pinterest’s putrid platform.

Fully agree. When I click a search link that shows a Pinterest web page, I immediately close it. Good bye!

True – search engines can (and probably should) solve the problem by disabling pinterest results by default.
