Among contributing factors of Pinterest’s exponentially growing membership is its inclusion of a short quiz to select ideas, ideas which users wish to see more pins and boards on on their feed.

What’s more is that users can come back anytime to choose more ideas they like. Pinterest shows pins under “ideas” in the quiz based on user searches, boards and recommendations taken by users from the recommended content.

It’s almost as if Pinterest is your very own person, one incredibly good at understanding your interests.
