  9. 9. 99 problems… Pinterest has been attacked for its terms and conditions which make users liable for everything they share on Pinterest – and give permission to Pinterest to do what they will with anything you share on their platform This has led some to leave Pinterest in protest out of fear of being sued ©Reach Further 2012 www.reachfurther.com
