Here Are Pinterest’s Top Pins Of 2013

Taco cupcakes, yoga poses, and grandmothers as flower girls were all hits in the pinning community.

Pinterest on Thursday released its top pins of 2013. From hipster haircuts to travel inspiration–or shall we say, pinspiration–the list shows the community has had its eye on a number of things beyond wedding ideas.

The selection of top pins are broken down by category, including food, travel, and technology. 2013 has been a monumental year for the social networking site. In addition to a $3.8 billion valuation, Pinterest also jumpstarted its revenue stream with the roll out of promoted pins. According to marketing firm Piquora, each pin is worth about 78 cents in sale, a 25% increase from last year, and drives two site visits and six page views.
