Launched in 2010, Pinterest is a social media site, largely devoted to displaying images and video. Users can upload, sort, and manage images and media, known as “pins,” on pages called “boards.” Pinterest is known for both exploration and product searches, and gives users the ability to purchase products displayed on the site. It was originally seen as a site used primarily by women, but it has been adding male users at an even clip in recent years. In September 2018, it announced that it had 250 million monthly active users. Its growth in users and revenue led to a successful IPO earlier this year.
