Many Pinterest users have lately been complaining on social media that they cannot comment on pins and notifications have disappeared.
Why Pinterest Comments are turned off?
Pinterest comments can be turned off because of a number of reasons. The most common ones are age verification, system glitches, use of filtered words, and violation of terms.
If your account has not been restricted, then you can self-troubleshoot the comments issues using the solutions provided below.
How to fix Pinterest comments problems
If the problem you are facing is comments disappearing once you type and click enter, then it is likely that the Pin Creator has filtered words you can use to comment. To confirm whether this is the cause of the problem, use different words to comment or comment on another pin.
To add comment filters in Pinterest go to settings > Social Permissions > under comments, enable filter comments on pins, and add words that you don’t want to appear in your pin’s comments.
Comments Turned Off
If people cannot comment on your pins but you can comment on others, then it can be that Pinterest automatically turned off comments on your pin.
To check and enable commenting, open a pin that you created > click the three dots, and then click allow comments button to allow or disallow. As of publishing this article, there is no way to disable commenting for all pins, you have to do it per pin.
To protect its users, Pinterest has started restricting some features for users who are below 18 years. Make sure that you have added your birth date to have all the features enabled in your account.
