Believe it or not, men on Pinterest do exist. To prove this point, we gathered 16 of the manliest accounts we could find. Even in 2014, many people still believe that Pinterest is a site made specifically for women. However, what many choose to overlook is the fact that men on Pinterest actually make up at least 20% of the networks audience. Pinterest stereotype runs so ammock, that I recently had a friend (who just so happens to be a man) try and guess what it is I do for a living. This was his interpretation, doodle and all: As you can see, his take on Pinterest is a pretty stereotypical one, full of “pretty people”, recipes and cute animals (though I’ve yet to run into much voodoo). So, in an attempt to show the power of Pinterest for the typical male, and to prove my friend wrong, I’ve compiled a list of 16 profiles that prove men on Pinterest do actually exist.
