Social Media Roundup Introduction You may have heard some buzz about Pinterest the last few weeks. Pinterest is a new social media platform that continues to grow in popularity so it’s important to keep it on your social media radar. Pinterest is a “virtual pinboard” that allows users to share ideas, images and tastes they find interesting or inspiring. Users post “pins,” usually images or graphics, onto their own categorized pinboards. Pinterest’s primary focus is ease of use. The site is now one of the top 10 social media platforms and has moved to the #5 referral site – meaning that it drives more traffic than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn combined. Despite its invitationonly policy and waiting list, Pinterest is becoming more popular and boasts 11 million total visits per week.
