According to the report, fashion and recipes have quickly become top topics on Pinterest, while number of its users grew hugely over the past year, digital media analytics company Comscore said.

Although Pinterest has tried different money-raising techniques, the company has not yet disclosed a commercial plan.

"They''re one of the main sites that serve the so-called social collectors, people who like to curate information across the web,' said an analyst, Darika Ahrens.

"What remains to be seen is what happens if they start to commercialise, how they''re going to do that and if they do it in a way that''s not going to alienate their users," she added.
