Most of the big Internet companies are sharing their year-end lists for 2015, but Pinterest is sharing things that people are frequently searching for around the world at the present time.
Pinterest has more and more been positioning itself as a search offering rather than a social media channel though it certainly features elements of both. As it bolsters its technology and staff to cater to the search and shopping experiences, it's interesting to get a peak at what people are actually looking for on the service.
Here are the trends for six countries as presented on Pinterest's blog:
In the United States
Harry Potter, Lob hair, Iceland, Men’s fashion, Pallet projects, Bathroom storage, Small tattoos, Scandinavian interiors, Vegan recipes, and Alice in Wonderland (this being the book’s 150 anniversary!)
Eggs benedict, New Year’s cards, Detox water, Glamping, Botanical, Marsala, Cheese fondue, Christmas decorations, Lifehacks and Wedding welcome boards
Scandinavian living rooms, Small bathrooms, Firno clay, Easy recipes, Sewing patterns, Short bobs, Street art, Bohemian weddings, Woodwork and Small tattoos
