Do men use Pinterest? It’s the question I’ve been asked every year since I started Pinterest marketing. But this year, 2022, it’s about to get real. Pinterest is putting real effort behind getting more men to use the platform.
Recent Pinterest research has shown that men have big plans for the year… and they’re willing to spend more to bring those plans to life.
In fact, 75% of men in the study are planning to spend more to bring their goals to fruition, and they’ve stated that they’re more excited about their plans for 2022 (compared to previous years).
Men have set a variety of goals for the new year – for instance:
- Finding more activities to do with family (60%)
- Seeing more movies in theaters (55%)
- Eating out more often (55%)
- Hosting more parties at their house (50%)
- Making large purchases – like buying a new car (30%)

Men are also premium shoppers, meaning they’re willing to spend a bit more to get what they want faster or to buy a brand they recognize. They also appreciate platforms like Pinterest that help them cut through the internet clutter.
