An addiction called PINTEREST (with Infographics)

 

If you're in the world of marketing and advertising, chances are you're familiar with Pinterest. (if not, then you better get a move on, and I mean pronto.)  Pinterest is the fastest growing social network right now, or as Stephanie Buck describes it: " an addiction that seems to be spreading like a zombie apocalypse virus." People can't seem to get enough of it.

This virtual pin board and social network allows users to "pin" things that are of interest to them, which in turn lets them promote them for free. With a growth of 4000% in the last six months, marketers cannot turn their heads to its potential. For photographers, retailers and fashion designers, it's an excellent digital portfolio that showcases their products and best work. In view of its success, here are two infographics which I find illustrate the fascination, craze and ins and outs of this new revolution. Oh, and here's a look at its most popular categories.

Happy pinning everyone!
