  5. Hi there:
    I’ve heard so much about this site, I’m dying to join. I received my invite. The only problem I have is I don’t do Twitter or Facebook…(yes still in the dark ages somewhat) How do I get to log in another way? Kindly let me know, as I have a lot of party planning to do, lol.
    Thanking you in advance.

    • Hi Trudy,

      Unfortunately, Pinterest is not letting anyone sign up unless it is through Facebook or Twitter. I would sign up for a Twitter account and then not use it, if you do not want to. They made this rule so you would share things to other social networks to get others to join. I’m sorry!


  6. I have received numerous invites by friends as well as an invite by Pinterest a month ago. I am unable to create an account. When I click on the facebook option it says I don’t have an account associated via facebook/pinterest. I am not getting the “allow” feature that allows me to link facebook with pinterest. Suggestions? I am really frustrated.

    • Hi Linda –

      I would ask for another invite and try to start over. Are you logged into your Facebook account when you try to sign up or sign in? I’m not really sure what’s going on here and I’m so sorry!


      • Yes, I am signed into my Facebook account when I try to sign up/sign in. Am I not supposed to be? And your invite didn’t work. :(

        • Linda – I’m not sure what’s going on. I don’t know if you should try signing out and signing up with a different email or what. I would try to contact Pinterest about this issue too.


  7. Hey I don’t know if you’re still taking invite requests but I would love an invite to pinterest!

    if you need my email let me know…

  11. Hi can you please send me an invite? All of my friends have an account and I feel quite will because I don’t! Haha hopefully you’re still sending invites! Thank you!!

  12. Oh THANK-YOU I would LOVE an invite! I don’t know want go through my social networking. I don’t see any recent replies from you however so I don’t just want to post my email if this thread is dead.

  13. Please invite me to pinterest. I requested an invite 2 months ago on the website and still haven’t gotten it.

  14. I’ve found this website very helpful! I’ve been trying to get accepted into pinterest for a while and didn’t know I needed someone that was already a member to invite me! If you don’t mind please send me an invite. Thank you!

  15. Hi could you please send me an invite? Im from Scotland and have only just heard about pinterest! Thanks xxx

  16. Hi I have been trying unsuccessfully to register with pinterest via e mail. Every time I fill out my user name it tells me the name is taken – I have tried many different user names to get round this but to no avail. I thought maybe I had registered before but it tells me it doesn’t recognise my e mail address or password so I obviously haven’t. My friend invited me but the same thing happened. It is very frustrating can you help please?

  17. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here regularly. I’m quite sure I will learn a lot of new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

  18. As a newbee I lost my sign in ID . I opened another account but it will not link to facebook because the 1st acount is linked to fasebook. I need my pasword or how to unlink facebook . Any ideas?

    • Hi Bonnie –

      On Pinterest, I would try to login using Facebook. That’s a function instead of logging in with an ID. Try going to Pinterest and using the “login with Facebook” option and that should help!

  19. Appreciating the hard work you put into your website and
    in depth information you offer. It’s nice to come across a blog every
    once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information.
    Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
