Pin trends of the week


Are your Monday Pins different than your Friday Pins? We were curious about what people Pin on different days of the week, so we took a closer look at what Pinners are up to when the week kicks off on Monday and then eases into Sunday.

Here’s a look at the most popular categories on each day of the week:

Monday: the week starts with good intentions in fitness

Tuesday: next up, gadgets are all the rage in technology

Wednesday: need a little something to get through the week —- inspirational quotes

Thursday: threads lead Thursday with fashion

Friday: GIFs bring some comic relief to the end of the week with humor

Saturday: summer vacations are top of mind with travel

Sunday: the week closes with food and craft ideas

See what’s trending

Humor is one of the fastest growing categories on Pinterest and holds the top spot on Friday. More than 3 million humor Pins are saved each day. And, in the five months since the GIFs launch, more than 400,000 GIFs are Pinned everyday. Here are some of the most Pinned GIFs:


On the fitness front, CrossFit is becoming a Pinner obsession, along with Paleo challenges and Tough Mudder Boot Camps.

By Saturday, Pinners are ready to hit the road or jump on a plane. We’re seeing all kinds of hiking trails in Portland, museum crawls in DC, and summer roadtrips through Boston. If you’re planning a European holiday, some of the most popular cities include Capri, Italy; Chamonix, France, Segovia, Spain.

Tell us which Pins have been your favorite this week!
