Pinterest’s Q3 Performance Update Displays Solid Rise In Active Users With Steady Growth In Revenue

Pinterest seems to be on a roll as the latest performance update (i.e. Q3 2023) of the company showed some promising stats that are worth a mention.

The popular app witnessed a solid rise in active users followed by a steady growth in revenue as well. These changes are clear proof of its popular relevance in today’s time for millions of people around the globe who adore using the app.

For starters, the company added a whopping estimate of 17 million users who were actively using the platform during this time. This took up figures to a staggering 482 million in total as far as the monthly active user count is concerned.

This is the company’s biggest-ever figure for users per month and it even went on to outweigh the stats for users seen during the pandemic period. And in case you did not know, the app really spiked during that time. And the figure counted for was 478 million.

Meanwhile, experts also mentioned how several analysts looked at the stats as one that was a clear indication of how willing people were to carry on with the trend of buying things online. And that would stand true even after the period of lockdowns ended.

However, they were wrong and as stores began to open, people were going out to make purchases and the spike for online shopping witnessed a great decline. After all, going back to old-time habits of buying things online seemed to be fruitful and more reliable to many consumers.

In the same manner, we saw the app witness a loss of nearly 47 million active users per month and that was before it started to get things back into place and in its favor.

Things right now are looking better than ever and the app continues to witness a growth in the market that entails different parts of the world. Two nations in particular that were really seeing a great standout in terms of peak performance for Pinterest were Mexico and Brazil.

On the the other hand, the stats for places like the European and American markets were more inconsistent and that continues to be a concerning factor when you stare at the chart.

Today, the platform still generates the highest amount of revenue from users located in the US region while next in line are clients present in Europe. This is clear proof of the opportunity that it highlights in the future but the app must begin to make the most of this front to really better its potential for earnings in such vast markets.

Speaking on the same subject, we did see another great indicator for growth in the future for this app and that had to do with the rising strength of Gen Z who adore using the app and are turning out to be Pinterest’s engaging user base.

As per stats, the app reported a huge growth with Gen Z and it’s now being dubbed as the fastest growing market of today with people saving close to double the figure of content during the first year on the app as compared to before.

Today, the app is really growing big time, and it's the younger lot who are loving it. These are some clear indicators of success for this app but whether or not the market sees this as the most positive aspect of them all is another story altogether.

As far as revenue is concerned, the app bought in a whopping $763 million for this time period and it’s up by 11% YoY, going above and beyond estimates. The overall costs and expenses related to this turned out to be $768 for the same time. And we do feel that it’s a fall from what we saw during Q2 but it continues to be a major key point worth focusing on.

The app did estimate how its expenses will end up falling nearly 13% when moving forward, thanks to a fall in costs as well as rationalization during the time. As a whole, we do see how the app continues to be in that dreaded red zone despite the fact that it produced some steady results.
