Asked and answered: Do you use Pinterest?

My Pinterest boards (May 2012)

I asked and you answered.The question was about using Pinterest and 47% of you (that's 8 out of 17) said no. 24% (4 out of 17) told they have an account but never use it. Only 29% (5 out of 17) confessed using Pinterest.

This doesn't say much about Pinterest, to be honest. It says something about those who follow this blog and their lack of interest in services such as Pinterest. I'm guessing most of those who voted were men.

This is mostly interesting only for me and the future of the site. Besides, 17 is not much of a take, is it?

It's been reported the Pinterest growth curve has declined. Less people are signing in, less are pinning. It just doesn't really show for a regular user. There's loads of active users there, pinning their until their wrists hurt.

What a regular user sees is a constant flow of pins and the most enthusiastic pinners going on and on. Amongst those I follow the amount of pins doesn't stop, it just seems there more every day. Most likely those who came to the service to see what's the hype about are now leaving, as the active ones are staying in.

Maybe the lawsuit scare has been part of the reason of the decline of users as well. Some have been deleting their Pinterest boards and accounts, even if it could be an overreaction. I think the biggest reason however is that usual thing: The hype has started to pass and only the most interested parties are continuing to use the service.
