Though frequently compared to the cohort of social media sites including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, Pinterest characterized itself in the S-1 as a place to "discover ideas" and focused on its identity as a place for "search."

The company brought in $755.9 million in revenue for 2018, up 60% from $472.9 million in 2017. But the company is still losing money. It had a net loss of $63 million in 2018, compared to a loss of $130 million in 2017.
