And now that same visual discovery experience is coming to the hugely anticipated Galaxy S8 from Samsung.
Nothing against traditional weddings, but it’s nice to see brides buck the norm and do their big day, their way. It's all about personalization and having fun, from printed bridesmaid dresses in lieu of mismatched solids, to the taco bar riff on family-style buffets.
There are over 150 million people who use Pinterest to find ideas, and more than half of those are from outside the United States. That’s why we spent the last year making sure that our app works quickly and smoothly for everyone—no matter where you live or what language you speak.
We interrupt your regularly-scheduled pinning to bring you this special trend report. Every month, our number nerds look at search and save patterns to pinpoint what’s growing in popularity over time—and the results are just too good to keep to ourselves. Here are the top food, home, beauty and style trends on the rise in March.
Pimped out popcorn
Last month, we introduced our new real-world visual discovery tool, Lens, to a small group of people on Pinterest.
After a good, long month of learning and tinkering, we’re happy to say that the beta version of Pinterest Lens is now available to everyone in the US, on iPhone and Android.
Last month we launched a new set of tools for visual thinkers: Instant Ideas, Shop the Look, and the beta version of Lens. Now anything you see on Pinterest, or capture with the camera in your Pinterest app, can kick off a search for great ideas—all without typing a single character.
If we’re going to crunch numbers, we’re going to crunch ones related to fun stuff—like food and booze. Who put Coca-Cola in their meatballs? WTF is survival bread? Who’s still drinking Peach Schnapps? Read on for answers to these questions, and more.
When it comes to looking for something you want to try—a new pasta dish, a new pair of shoes, a new table for your dining room—you really need to see it first. Humans are visual creatures. We use our eyes to decide if something looks good, or if it matches our style.
Evan and I have always believed that building diverse teams is essential to building great products. Diverse teams come with a broader set of experiences, which means they often have new perspectives and ideas. That’s important for Pinterest as we set out to help people around the world discover and do things they love.
Even though we always valued diversity, as we grew quickly, we found that we started to look more and more like a typical technology company—we just didn’t see as many women or underrepresented minorities on our team.
There are all kinds of recaps and best-ofs this time of year, but instead of looking back, we’re jumping ahead. Our insights team dug through a ton of data from the past year to identify the top emerging trends on Pinterest. And the results are just too good to keep to ourselves.
It’s the beginning of December, and the gift-buying, party-planning frenzy of the hardcore holiday season is officially here. What to wear to the office party? Which cheerful drinks and finger foods should you serve at your own holiday spread? What are you going to get your kid for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or their unfortunately timed December birthday?
There are over 75 billion ideas on Pinterest, and people around the world save millions more here every single day. With so many great hand-curated ideas making their way onto Pinterest, there could be some you'd really love if only you knew about them.
That’s what Pinterest Explore is all about—helping you make sure you don’t miss the good stuff.
So you’ve found an idea on Pinterest and brought it to life. Now what?
