- I keep seeing Pinterest batted about but have so far remained ignorant to it's existence. What is it all about?Apr 24, 2012
- Hi- essentially it is a social network that in purely based on imagery. Initially it took some getting my head around what the point was - but for some industries that have very photogenic products (or services) - it can be an amazing way of showing what you business offers.
People create "pinboards" which are usually themed around a particular subject - and then add their own photos (or other peoples photos).
What has amazed me has been the number of people who have visited my website from there (especially when at the moment I have so few followers). What I have seen is that a picture is much more likely to be repinned than a tweet retweeted (provided it adds some value or is interesting!).Apr 24, 2012
