Any guesses on what men vs. women are up to on Pinterest? We looked at trending searches between the sexes so far this year, and found a few surprises and some common ground. Here’s the Pinterest he said/she said:
This year we’ve been doing a lot of work with our partners (like advertisers and developers) to find new ways to make Pinterest feel a little more personalized and useful for you.
For example, now you can connect your Pinterest account to different apps. That way you can do things like Pin from an app straight to Pinterest. We also worked with our advertisers to show you more relevant and interesting ads using info they collected from their own sites.
We just made it easier for you to save some dough on your holiday shopping this season. Starting today, we’ll let you know whenever a buyable Pin you’ve saved drops in price.
Say you’ve collected a bunch of gift ideas on your Holiday Shopping board. When that cashmere scarf for mom goes on sale, we’ll send you a notification so you can buy it right from the app.
There are all kinds of recaps and best-ofs this time of year, but instead of looking back, we’re jumping ahead and making some Pinterest predictions for 2016. We looked at trending Pins in popular categories, Pins from our most influential Pinners and even a few hand-picked by Pinterest employees.

Sometimes you spot something you really love on Pinterest, but you don’t know how to find it in real life, or what it’s even called. There’s that perfect lamp hiding in a Pin of someone’s living room, or maybe a random street style shot with the exact shoes you’re looking for.
Well, now we’ve got a new tool that lets you find all those things you don't have the words to describe.
Earlier this summer, we launched buyable Pins on iPhone and iPad. Today, we’re excited to start rolling them out to U.S. Pinners on Android! There are over 60 million buyable Pins to choose from, so now when you discover products you love on Pinterest, you can buy them without ever leaving the app.
With less than a week left till Halloween, it’s time for maximum creativity with minimal effort.

Here are the top 20 ways to keep it simple and get creative with stuff you already have in your closet.
Back in 2010 when we first started Pinterest, we were blown away by how many ways people found to use it. What started as a simple visual bookmarking tool quickly became a catalog of ideas that all kinds of interesting people—architects, designers, gardeners, chefs, parents—used to discover creative ideas they wanted to try.
You spend a lot of time searching for Pins and saving the best ones to your boards. But you shouldn’t have to spend a lot of time getting back to those Pins when you need them.
