    Now they show board suggests at bottom of page after pinning, so no longer getting high number of people following these boards. It's not noticable anymore so I think many pinners just ignore it or didn't see it. I checked my Pinterest data of last 2 months and found board follower numbers have gone down. people repin like before but don't follow boards.

    Anyone experienced this ?

    Nope, did you check with another account if your pins still show up on their front page?

    There are plenty of bot followers out there and it could be that your being followed by a bunch of these that got mass-banned. I believe that for this reason, I sometimes see a drop of 200 or more followers overnight without any loss to engagements.

    That must be one reason too. Even someone of profiles have so many bot accounts following those. But these is one reason why I keep an eye on board followers and profile followers. Real people usually follow boards they like than whole huge profiles. This is something even I do in my personal account. Board suggestions use to appear on middle of page after pinning something but now its at bottom and I often miss it.
