Pinterest is down – but data proves the social shopping IPO isn’t out

Published

on

Pinterest stock is taking a beating, as investors are turning bearish on digital companies yet to turn a profit. But, for Pinterest, the ‘yet’ could be coming soon, as its alternative data paints a far rosier picture than a number of the other big-name startups that launched 2019 IPOs only to have their newly-minted listed stock lose nearly 50% of its value from shares’ peak.

With Pinterest’s Facebook ($NYSE:PINS) Talking About Count, we can tell that there’s a big spike up in the online shopping social network, about a couple of weeks before the holidays. At the far right of our chart, we can also see that the trend appears to be repeating itself.

There are plenty of startups that saw their sagging share prices sap hiring ambition. Not Pinterest, though – in 2019, its job postings rose 48%, as it continued to scale up – hopefully in anticipation of a big holiday shopping season, although investors won’t know the full outcome until earnings at the end of January.

Pinterest is dependent – in part – on social media traffic, which is what makes its Facebook Talking About Count relevant as a performance metric. But, it’s also dependent on the digital marketplace to fuel its growth – and that’s what makes Pinterest’s Apple ($NASDAQ:AAPL) Store Ratings Count (the graphic above) and Pinterest’s average rating in the store so important. As our chart tracks, it grew its rating count by 18% in 2019 – a clear signal of engagement – and user reviews (the graphic below) logged a 3.2% year-over-year increase.

About the Data:

Thinknum tracks companies using the information they post online – jobs, social and web traffic, product sales and app ratings – and creates data sets that measure factors like hiring, revenue and foot traffic. Data sets may not be fully comprehensive (they only account for what is available on the web), but they can be used to gauge performance factors like staffing and sales.

Pinterest Publishes New Update on Employee Diversity and its Impacts on Product Decisions

Pinterest Publishes New Update on Employee Diversity and its Impacts on Product Decisions thumbnail

Pinterest has this week released a new update on its efforts to employ a more diverse and inclusive range of people within its organization, and the impacts that those efforts have had on its product decisions. 

As explained by Pinterest:

“It’s hard to feel inspired when you don’t feel represented – online or in your workplace – and research shows that diverse teams make us more creative, diligent and hard-working. When we are building products, a team of people with different backgrounds enables us to think through products, policies, and safety from all angles (for instance, how products could be abused or how they could unintentionally impact a community).”

Pinterest has set a range of targets on staff diversity, and it says that, for the most part, it’s now meeting those aims:

  • We wanted to increase hiring rates for full-time women engineers to 25% and surpassed it with a new high of 27%
  • We wanted to increase hiring rates to 8% underrepresented* minority engineers and exceeded it at 9%
  • We wanted to increase hiring rates for underrepresented minority employees across the company (business and product) to 12% and exceeded it at 14%

This increased focus on diversity has lead to some significant, inclusive product developments, including improved user wellbeing policies, the creation of a gender transition guide for organizations, and the implementation of a ‘skin tone’ search qualifier to hone in on more relevant search results.

In a more progressive, inclusive online world, Pinterest is looking to lead the way in showing how expanding your employee perspective can lead to a more beneficial, supportive and welcoming situation – both for the employees themselves and for those utilizing your services. The outcomes listed here highlight exactly what that looks like in practice, and as the world becomes even more connected, such initiatives will only increase in relevance.
