At Pinterest we measure the success of our product not just by what people are doing, but by what people are feeling. For many, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, but for others, the holidays are anything but wonderful. In October, we announced some new updates to improve how we support our Pinners, especially those who might be struggling with their emotional well-being. Just search for “#pinterestwellbeing” to find resources and activities that should both help you with how you’re feeling, and improve the quality of the inspiration you find on Pinterest. And just last week, Pinterest extended its compassionate search experience to better support people who are feeling sadness, pain or other emotions related to the urge to self-harm.
Pinterest has always been a positive place where people can explore the dreams and ideas that will fuel their future selves. So it’s no surprise that since last year, searches for “transgender transition” have increased 3919%³. Pinners are also finding inspiring quotes, artwork, style tips, wellness ideas and representation in the growing number of trans, nonbinary and genderqueer celebrities online.
