Admittedly, I am an avid Pinterest user. Although, I avoided joining for as long as I could. But once you start pinning, you never really stop.
Pinterest has gained popularity like wildfire, almost everyone I know has a Pinterest and is a big fan. It’s a virtual idea board, where other people’s ideas are on the tip of your fingertips. It’s a giant sharing network, where people can view the ideas, tastes, preferences and styles of all their friends and even some strangers.
The range of content on Pinterest is also mind blowing. Everything from recipes, to DIY face masks, to photos of foreign countries, to pictures of pets is on Pinterest. The amount of content available would take an individual years to collect, but instead, there it is, all right in front of you.
This week on TechCrunch‘s website, they reported that Pinterest had hit a record high 11.7 million individual visitors this month. According to the research of comScore, “Pinterest would be the fastest site of any kind to hit 10 million monthly uniques in the U.S.”. This research shows how content sharing is one of the more activities. Take a look at the introduction and now prevalence of Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and FourSquare.
Although I held out on Pinterest for a while, I am glad to say I joined!
