Pinterest allows the user to show those who follow it images that they find interesting and useful - the image posts are called Pins.
Profile: Dimensions of 165 × 165 pixels, with recommended upload of 600 x 600 pixels. More than that, there will be resizing. The thumbnail will be 49 x 49 pixels.
Many brands are learning to use Pinterest as a space for marketing, especially those that deal a lot with the look. But to be well seen there, you have to pay attention to the size of the images. All social networks have their own limits for carrying images, so it's always good to be aware of them.
Pins: We recommend a ratio of 2:3 or 1,000 x 1,500 pixels. Pins with a ratio greater than 2:3 may appear cut off from the users' feed.
Videos: Use ratio less than 1:2 (width:height) and greater than 1.91:1. We recommend using square (1:1) or vertical (2:3, 9:16) videos.
Pinterest was officially launched in 2010. Founded by Ben Silbermann, in the United States, the photo sharing social network was voted one of the best sites of 2011. The application allows users to share and manage images in various categories such as fashion, travel, entrepreneurship, decoration and food.
Currently, Pinterest has over 200 million users worldwide. In addition, the platform is responsible for storing 100 billion ideas. According to the company's data, about 2 billion surveys are done monthly on Pinterest, 300 million of which are surveys per image.
According to Pinterest, the platform's mission is to help users do what they like. To do so, the company follows guidelines to guide its work. Among them are security, respect for intellectual property rights, privacy and quality.
To continue expanding the business, the company created Pinterest Labs, which brings together researchers, scientists and engineers for the development of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
