It appears to be a Pinterest problem. Others have found this too in the past week. Pinterest doesn't seem to be notifying people. You may want to take your second link down. The text is clearly visible through the yellow.

Same problem for me. So far, 10 new accounts built after 11th April do not have people following back.

At best 6 to 9 new followers before the 500 limit is reached. For some there's none. 

I've tried to manually unfollow people so that SM2 could follow new people but so far this doesn't change anything.

All of my older accounts still behave normally with new followers adding every day.

Has anyone built in the last 10 days new accounts without facing this issue? I'm trying to figure out if this is something related to proxies (I'm always using private ones) or if this is a general problem which only requires patience.

Any clue about this bug would be much appreciated. Is there any workaround ?

Hi Meg and Azharrahim,

I have the same issue with all my new accounts. I don't know any reason. :(
This way it's going to be impossible to get followers... or just something I do wrong?

Any help is very welcome!
Thank you!
Péter

I don't think WE can do anything but Pinterest won't like it if people don't follow because that is part of their business so presumably they are gong to have to change this. On my new account, I have turned following down to 1 per board until the number of follows increases again.

Thank you Meg for your quick reply! I agree that this is something with pinterest and not about the tool. The question is always how to get back on track. :) I didn't follow it so close to see since when it's happening, but it clearly something I need to act on as well.

How do you mean "turned following down to 1 per board". You mean by pinterest account? Do you see any change since you modified the settings?

Thank you all!
Péter

In SM2, my new account is following 500 and won't follow more until I get more followers, so I have changed the number of people I am following in SM2 to 1 person per board. Once I see the numbers I am following go up, then I will increase my followings in SM2.

We have some preliminary evidence that it may not matter if it doesn't pass. We have a brand new account that's generated some traffic in its early days despite having zero followers. It's early yet, and we're monitoring the situation, but if the traffic continues to grow then Pinterest has likely modified their algorithm to not require as many followers when putting pins in the search results. Could be very good news for us all.
