Outlook

Pinterest's current expectation is that Q4 revenue will grow around 60% year over year, a modest acceleration compared to growth rate in Q320. Company continues to navigate uncertainty given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and other factors.

Pinterest is also operating in a more remote working environment while maintaining investments in the long-term strategic priorities of the company. Company continues to evaluate spending as the situation evolves.
