How to Tag Pinterest Members

By Kelby Carr

In a pin description, you can tag another Pinterest member to draw their attention to the pin. Tagging them also makes their profile name in the pin description link to that person’s Pinterest profile.

To tag a member while pinning, repinning, or commenting, follow these steps:

  1. In a pin description or a comment, type the @ character and (without a space) the first letter(s) of the name of the person you want to tag in the description.

    A drop-down list of friends whose names start with that letter appears.


  2. From the drop-down list, select the name of the person you want to tag.

    The name is filled out in that spot in the description.

  3. Finish writing your comment or description and then click the Comment or Repin button to publish.

    After you tag the person, the description of the pin features her name, and it will be linked to her profile page.
