Offering a unique visual spin on social bookmarking, Pinterest allows businesses and individuals to create stunning palates of their works and offers. In less than three (3) years, it has become the third largest social media site in the United States, only behind perennial leaders Facebook and Twitter.
This photo-sharing “pinning” site allows users to create theme-based boards (e.g. travel, sports, fitness, fashion, etc.) that others can later “pin” or share with their friends.
Sharing interesting photos can be a lot of fun and a great hobby, but Internet marketers are probably wondering: Can Pinterest be useful for me?
