Other Pins, like beautiful images of food or travel, get saved a lot but readers don’t click through until later. BuzzFeed 5 Lessons Using Pinterest 2.

BuzzFeed posts from classic categories like Beauty, Home, Crafts, Fitness and Food do well on Pinterest, but they’ve learned that other topics like tattoos, books, Disney-inspired posts and humor do well, too.
