What's interesting is that there seems to be a flood of bot run pinboards. How much of that popularity is artificial because of them?
 
There's also tons of spammers and bots on Pinterest. Not saying that G+ doesn't have those as well...
 
Though G+ does appear to be policed for bots far far better. :)

I haven't seen any in a month now.
 
Still not interested. Or pinterested.
 
yeah...right. Coming from a site that you have to be invited to join? I doubt the veracity of this story...
 
Bots are people my friend... or at least Pinterest bots do a good job pf pretending to be people. Where's a Blade Runner when you need them?

But Google+ has 100 million followers. Pinterest has 20. How did they work out that Google+ is less popular o.O
 
I'm guessing by the +1 and resharing counts of all shares. :)
 
On my site I get more pins than Facebook likes. Does that mean Pinterest is more popular than Facebook? No
 
And also, that article has more +1's than Facebook likes :P
 
Hi!

Thanks for joining the Pinterest waiting list. We'll be sure to send you an invite soon.

In the meantime, you can follow us on Twitter. You can also explore a few pins.

We're excited to get you pinning soon!

- Ben and the Pinterest Team

Yeah...you can't even JOIN...
 
If someone invites you then you are in immediately and can invite yourself under different aliases - setting up a web of bots.
