Named the ‘ Pinterest 100, ‘ the list, which has its own dedicated mini-site, includes ten key categories identified by Pinterest throughout the year based on trends in search and general usage.
As Pinterest explains:
“When Pinners are looking for new ideas, they come to Pinterest first. It’s where they get inspiration, dream about new possibilities and plan for what matters most. And every time someone searches on Pinterest, they’re thinking about what they want to try next.”
Added that:
“Multiply that behavior by the more than 320 million people using Pinterest all over the world, and you get unique insight into emerging trends.”
