- Be Respectful
Users are urged to stay respectful when it comes to their posts and comments so as to create a friendly community within the site.

Originality is highly regarded on Pinterest. Since it heavily relies on user photos, images, and everybody is advised to use only their original work if not for re-pinning purposes.
