Our growth at Pinterest has been driven by more than 200 million monthly active users that have saved 100 billion Pins and counting. Each of these Pins represents an opportunity to drive traffic to creators.
Last week, Shareaholic released their 2017 report that tracked social referral traffic across 250k+ mobile and desktop sites. While Facebook’s share of traffic is dropping due to a variety of macro trends (down 25.8% YoY), Pinterest continues to increase as a source of social traffic to sites, increasing 27.5% YoY.
