You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Rocksatedy again.
Thanks a lot for this info, Rocksatedy. Really interesting and useful. Unfortunately, locally is not so popular for now. I believe that the stats are based on the world wide trends. And mainly USA.

But one thing I notice - more and more companies open Pinterest account to drive traffic from there. Specially some niches, targeting the female audience, like shoos, jewelry (as you wrote), pets, clothes, flowers, and many others. Also, the sharing there is much more interesting instead of the other social networks. I believe that Pinterest will increase its popularity and soon will be in top 3 social site next to Facebook and Twitter. That means that Google+ and LinkedIn will drop down on this list.

I like Pinterest just as an regular user and I advise people who have business with more female customers to try it, you will not regret :)

Just wondering when they plan to start selling ads - make some money out of the traffic they generate.
Pinterest ad network is coming soon. I am not sure, but i think they are testing it right now, check out this
The idea of that network - paid boards, located in the header of every single search result, but its just my suggestion:mrgreen:

By the way, a lot of new BG sites (and suppose some European, local, as well) include Pinterest as an social channel on their site? Before that, they didn't do it. Most popular was Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, Youtube. I also recommend it to all of the people who have sites and wanted to be a little bit more social. :)

I think that Pinterest is the opposite of Twitter, where you can share pics and graphics mostly, instead of sharing only links and text. Pinterest is mostly focused on that. In conclusion - every social site have chances as long as it unique, different and not at lease - useful. :)

Try to explain it the best way you can, and I feel you. :) Joking. ;)

For me Pinterest is just another useless social site. Sorry for my opinion here, but scrolling and looking at some pic and doing the same oven and over again is not what I imagine in my mind for a valuable resource. Yes, there are some interesting and catching stuff, but you can see them not only there, which makes it another image hosting site. :)

How many of you, guys use Pinterest as and second, even third party traffic resource. Yes, that's right. You just have it, because others do. :)

Yep, you are right, if you use this network as regular user, otherwise you are completely wrong:)
