Force Pinterest App to open links in system browser

I would not really complain, except that the functionality problems that I describe below affect paid Pinterest ads too.

Ad error: “Several of your ads were rejected for violating our Advertising Policy on social issue, electoral or political ads in the United States.”

Potential Facebook problems with wrongly attributed TOS violations. Again.

(Please don’t say or think “It’s something wrong with Facebook’s AI.” It’s not an AI. Stop using the word AI! You are cluelessly falling into hype intended to wow you.)

Ad error: “Your ad will not run on Instagram because the caption is longer than 2 200 characters. Edit the caption.”

Be careful when you are making ads on Facebook with auto-placement. Certain high traffic placement have limitations that Facebook does not.

After running some ads for a while, I noticed “Your ad will not run on Instagram because the caption is longer than 2 200 characters. Edit the caption.”
