In case you haven’t heard, Pinterest is the latest site to create a buzz on the Internet, especially with women. With 73 million unique visitors, Pinterest is quickly becoming the newest social media website to take the country by storm. Over 80% of the visitors and 10 million registered users are female. According to the Pinterest website, their goals are, “to connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting.” The photo-based virtual pinboard allows users to collect and share everything from recipes and craft ideas to home decor designs and fashion pieces.

    Glad to see this post. I love Pinterest and have been working on a wbinear to introduce some of my friends. Tricia did an excellent job of explaining how to use it and why you should use it. I was shocked with the amount of time an average use spends on Pinterest. So far, I have been able to limit my time to about 15 minutes and feel I have looked at a lot in that time. I think Pinterest will continue to grow and be very popular in the years to come.
