More women use Pinterest to post pictures of food and furry animals, and more men use Dartitup to share snaps of cars, a new infographic that compares sharing and user habits on the two content-sharing sites reveals.

Pinterest, the service that allows members to “pin” images, videos and other content to their online pinboards, has more female users (97pc) than male (3pc).

Dartitup, where users collect their favourite images and place them on virtual dartboards, is the opposite in terms of the gender of its users, although with less of a gap between the sexes – 88pc of Dartitup’s users are male, and 12pc are female.

The infographic published by Dartitup on Visual.ly also examines what users are sharing on Pinterest and Dartitup.

Furry animals, and arts and crafts are the most popular items to be seen on Pinterest, followed by hairstyles, recipes and food, flowers, and dresses and pumps.

Dartitup users most often share images pertaining to cars, humour, gadgets and tech, beer and liquor, sports, and clothing and sneakers/trainers.

Earlier this year, comScore reported that with 11.7m users, Pinterest was the fastest site in history to break through the 10m unique-visitor mark.

Dartitup has gotten off to a strong start itself, having amassed 350,000 page views 17 days after launch, according to the infographic.
