Pinterest has apologized to some of its users who, the service erroneously assumed, were getting married.
An email message from Pinterest read:
You’re getting married! And because we love wedding planning — especially all the lovely stationery — we invite you to browse our best boards curated by graphic designers, photographers and fellow brides-to-be, all Pinners with a keen eye and marriage on the mind.
Several young ladies took to social media sites to point out Pinterest’s gaffe:
Pinterest assumed that I’m getting married cause all my pins are about wedding stuff for my brother’s wedding. pic.twitter.com/WSwtnMf8Lh
