Pinterest is now the third most popular social network

9 Apr

Pinterest is now third only to Facebook and LinkedIn in the US in terms of social networking.

I’ve begun to notice the odd brand or agency being active on Pinterest, but only a few. If the (rather cringeworthy and clichéd but legit) mantra of ‘fish where the fish are’ is still going to apply in 2012, isn’t it time that more brands had a presence on there?

Gap used Pinterest well over Christmas last year, with their holiday gift guide, but I’m yet to see any UK brands really stand out on there. Have you noticed any?

And, in light of Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram for $1 billion (which, quite frankly sounds like something from Austin Powers), I wonder whether Zuckerberg and co.  have been trying to buy Pinterest – and for how much?


Interesting times…
