If you are trying to explore ways to share and talk to other church members, your church can set-up a Pinterest account. Not many people know about these 10 Pinterest stats and how Pinterest can be used for the church.
Pinterest focuses mainly on images, gifs, and short clips. You can be creative on Pinterest! In other words, create images, posters, and videos reflecting your church and its beliefs, then post them on Pinterest. Here are 10 stats you’ll want to know to set-up a Pinterest account:
Pinterest is now the third-largest social network in the U.S.
Pinterest now has 88 million MAUs in the U.S., marking an 8% year-over-year growth. The stats, which were announced in February in the company’s Q4 earnings call, blew most analyst estimates out of the park. EMarketer had projected Pinterest would close 2019 with 82.4 million U.S. users, ahead of the 80.2 million estimated for Snapchat.
Pinterest closed out 2019 by overtaking Snapchat as the third-biggest social network in the United States. Facebook and Instagram hold the top spots. Throw YouTube into the mix, and Pinterest falls to the fourth position. The community on Pinterest is growing. More and more people are joining this app. It’s time that your church does the same.
Women on Pinterest power buying decisions
71% of global Pinterest users are female, according to Statista. When concentrating on the U.S., Pinterest reaches 83% of women ages 25-54. That same group makes 80% of the buying decisions in U.S. households, and they are harnessing the power of Pinterest to visualize their future, strategize about their goals and assist them on their purchasing journey.
Pinterest is the new magazine. All you need is to have an internet connection and to download the app. Luckily, this app is free! Your church can set-up an account and create a magazine-type board where members and other interested individuals can pin your content on their board.
Pinterest Monthly Active Users
The 300 million monthly active users mark was crossed in the second quarter of 2019. It represents a 30 percent year-on-year growth and a 3.1 percent growth from the previous quarter.
The growth of Pinterest is very promising, and people are enjoying visual content rather than content that is purely written. A communicator shall be versatile and learn to communicate with people in any form or method.
Pinterest is most popular with women—especially moms

It is not the app’s primary intention to focus primarily on fashion. Still, it has become a tool for females to check the latest fashion trend and see the next fashion statement. Despite this, the church shouldn’t be discouraged because it offers more than the latest fashion trend. It has the capability of reaching people needing spiritual guidance.
Nine out of 10 Pinners describe Pinterest as filled with positivity
90% of users agree that Pinterest is “filled with positivity,” and the platform is doing its best to keep it that way. In the summer of 2019, Pinterest unveiled a “more compassionate search experience” with a collection of emotional well-being activities for users experiencing sadness, stress, anxiety, depression, and beyond.
Positivity is what the church is trying to spread. Our life with the Lord will always be positive no matter what situation we are in, whether good or bad. A single Bible verse from your page can change a day or even the life of any person who needs to see it the most. Pinterest is one of the few apps that let you spread positivity through pictures.
More than 14M articles are pinned daily

As above-mentioned, Pinterest views images that lead a person to the article that is why it’s easy to post on this app, and at the same time, it does not irritate people.
