Top 5 Facts and Trends of Pinterest

In only five years Pinterest has become the top visual search and bookmarking tool for millions of crafters, party planners, and home renovators.

On Pinterest’s 5th birthday we see the following interesting facts and exciting trends.

1. Personal Use

The main purpose of other social networks is to share what you did. Pinterest is a bit unique in that most Pinners primary purpose is to bookmark items for personal use such as inspiration for a wedding, birthday party or home design.

2. Global Presence

Pinterest is rapidly expanding with availability in 30+ languages and offices in 6 global locations.

3. Man Share Growth

Although the user base is predominantly female, use by men is on the rise.

4. Mobile Device Use

Interestingly, a whopping 80% of users pin and search on their mobile devices.

5. A New Way to Shop

With Rich Pins and Promoted Pins, brands have new ways to market to their customers. In fact, much of the content on Pinterest comes from brands.
