I’ve noticed it too recently, in fact my husband told me that someone was finally following his company (bedrockcg) and when I checked it out the guy had 40+ boards with one pin each. The next morning, I had a notification that the same guy was following my artist boards (paintedhill) and also the cabinet company I work for (canyoncreekcabs)!
All three accounts have different logins, and none are linked to FB. Turns out he’s following more than 10,000 people, although he does now have multiple pins on a lot of his boards. Maybe just a lot of time on his hands??
@mssilvr I take a look at all followers’ boards before I follow back too; and typically follow individual boards rather than the entire “collection.” I’m also careful about what I repin; If it doesn’t link back to a website/blog or if the pinner doesn’t say “look at this photo I took and uploaded,” I generally don’t pin. I’ll frequently put a link to someone’s site in my comment too to help spread the word for someone.
I do expect the spammers, hackers and scammers to join the party soon though
