During a public engineering event at their San Fransisco office Pinterest stated that, men are now a much faster growing demographic than women on the platform, with men counting for over one-third of all new registrations.

Pinterest also revealed a number of other statistics, stating that it has over 30 billion pins on its platform with a regular growth of 25% per quarter.
