The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in economic slowdowns or shutdowns in impacted locations, both in the U.S. and internationally, and are continuing to do so. The restrictions positively impacted the pinner engagement and growth in both the United States and the International region, as people sought online entertainment and inspiration during the pandemic. Since mid-March 2021, the relaxation of restrictions related to COVID-19 has slowed down MAU growth and pinner engagement. People are spending less time online compared to the same period in 2020.

Pinterest has also been referred to as a “visual search engine” in recent years. Pinterest is mostly made up of “pins” and “boards.” A pin is an image that has been uploaded or linked to a website.

Every new pin that a user saves must be saved to a specific board and is connected with a certain context.
