Pinterest was the Fastest Growing Social Network in 2014

Pinterest recorded the biggest percentage rise in active users of every major social network in 2014, reveals a new study.

GlobalWebIndex surveyed internet users aged 16-64 worldwide (excluding China) and found that Pinterest had gained 97 percent more active users year-on-year, narrowly beating Tumblr, which saw a 95 percent growth in active users, into second place.

Instagram (+47 percent), LinkedIn (+38 percent) and YouTube (+13 percent) rounded out the top five.

Twitter added just 7 percent more active users in 2014, while Facebook fell by 9 percent.
