750 million pin boards had also just been created in the last six months helping re-pinning statistics to also grow by 20 percent.
With billions of photos to scroll through, Pinterest also announced a new guided search feature which allows users to post questions and receive relative pins as answers. For example, a user can ask how to make a eggs benedict and receive pins and posts of different recipes.
“Search engines are great for answering specific questions – the weather in San Francisco or the capital of Peru – but Pinterest can help with the questions that have more than one right answer. With so many possibilities, you might not know the best one till you see it,” stated Pinterest discovery team head Hui Xu.
