Areavoices Digest #73 – Capitalizing on the Pinterest explosion

No doubt you’ve heard about the meteoric rise of Pinterest. In two short years, the digital bulletin board has become the third most popular social network trailing only behind Facebook and Twitter in the number of monthly users. In fact,  Pinterest doubled it’s number of users between January and February of this year and no other social network reached 10 million users faster than Pinterest. Although recent reports suggest that growth is slowing Pinterest is still a hot commodity for it’s millions of users (80% of them female). Now one of our Areavoices bloggers is making it easier for you to Pin without really pinning.

Her name is Jen Burris and she’s taking what she sees on Pinterest and trying it out for herself. And we get to read about it on her blog. It’s just one of the recommended blogs of the week. Enjoy!

  1. It’s great to see so many areavoices bloggers talking about pinterst! I hope they have their own accounts for themselves or their business.

    Although we’re not sure in the long run how a brand aka nonprofits, businesses, or agencies will do on the site (if it’s for our niche or not), it’s fun to try it and be part of the first ones on pinterest.

  2. Not to be too much of a perfectionist, however the metaphor in your first sentence should have read “meteoric rise”. And on a side note, meteors actually do not rise they fall.

    Have a great day!
