Social scrapbooking application Pinterest is midway to maturity. It recently introduced the long-awaited Buy button, which lets people purchase products they’re perusing on the site. It has hit 70 million monthly active users according to ComScore and raised over a billion in funding, more recently from Wellington Management Company and Goldman Sachs.

The service is figuring out what it wants to be when it grows up and how it wants to make money. CEO Ben Silbermann and Re/code’s Walt Mossberg discussed both onstage at the Code Conference this year.

“How do you build world-class search, world-class recommendations, the best tool for saving later?” Silbermann said. “We’re laser focused on this idea that Pinterest will be the place where you discover.”
