Statistics show that 80% of all Pinterest users are women leaving the other 20% of users as males. That lowly 20% of males who use the site make even less of the pins that are performed on the site. Men account for only 8% of all pins by gender with women accounting for 92% of all pins.

 

The number of men using Pinterest is on the decline and has been steadily declining since July of 2011. That is the first month that RJMetrics, the company who provided this data, has records on. The data firm says that it used the user names of Pinterest users to map to census bureau data to determine gender.
