It’s been called the fastest growing site on the web, and while another network actually holds that distinction, you can’t deny the massive growth and interest Pinterest has achieved in such a short time. It’s hard to argue with over 4 million users within a year of operation and 11.7 million unique monthly visitors.
So what does Pinterest have that other networks don’t? Well for starters, it’s easy. Crazy easy. The "Pin It" bookmarklet captures images from nearly any online resource, users can upload content from their desktops, and their app allows for mobile photo uploads. Couple that with highly visual and engaging content, and it’s hard to resist the charms of this digital, social scrapbook. We’re always excited by the possibilities that come with a new social network and have been inspired by the creative uses people and brands have found for their pinboards so far.
The only drawback for this open network (at this moment) is the need for an invite to join the pinning party; don’t worry, they’re not too hard to come by. Whether you’re just getting started, or are a Pinterest Pro, follow our boards - we’d love to connect and share with you.
