Pinterest is the latest social media darling and with good reason! In Shareaholic’s January Referral Traffic Report, Pinterest was found to be a BETTER traffic referrer than YouTube, Reddit, LinkedIn, MySpace or Googe+ combined for many large retailers who have a Pinterest presence.
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard just like the corkboards we had in our rooms as kids and you may still have in your home or office. I have an old one with all my children’s art work from over the years on it. Pinterst has taken this same concept and create a social networking site that allows users to create photo collections online – like an online scrapbook. It is primarily a photo sharing website where the members are allowed to create albums pertaining to a theme or pattern. The interesting part it that it is taking the social media world by storm!
