This statistic highlights Pinterest’s Monthly Active Users (MAUs) Worldwide from Q1 2016 onwards, splits between International and the United States.
Pinterest is an image sharing and social media site that enables the collection and discovery of information on the internet through the use of photos and, on a smaller scale animated GIFs and videos in the form of pinboards. People who visit this site are referred to as pinners by the company.
Pinterest’s Monthly Active Users divided into two regions:
|Regions||Q1 2020||Q1 2021||YOY Growth|
(All figures in millions, except percentages)
A monthly active user is defined by Pinterest Inc. as an authenticated Pinterest user who visits the website, opens the mobile application, or interacts with Pinterest through one of the browser or site extensions, at least once during the 30-day period ending on the date of measurement. The company generates revenue by displaying advertisements on its website and mobile application.
Pinterest monthly active users were 478 million in Q1 2021, an increase of 30.25% compared to Q1 2020. The company gained 124 million monthly active users in 2020. That was the largest growth the platform had ever seen.
Pinterest Inc. has seen considerable growth in International MAUs in recent years. Because of the emphasis on localizing material in international markets, overseas MAU’s have grown considerably. Pinterest’s International Monthly Active Users were 380 million in Q1 2021, an increase of 37.18% compared to Q1 2020. The company gained 103 million monthly active users in 2020 which is 91% of the overall growth of MAU’s during 2020.
Pinterest MAUs and revenue are higher in the US due to the company’s decision to concentrate its initial monetization efforts there, as well as Pinterest’s relative size and maturity in the US digital advertising market. Pinterest had 98 million monthly active users in Q1 2021, it was increased by 8.89% year-over-year from Q1 2020. MAU’s count of the United States has consistently increased every quarter. In Q1 2020, Pinterest’s MAU’s were 90 million and reached 98 million in Q3 2020. However, from Q3 2020 to Q4 2020 there has not been any change in the MAU’s count.
