Pinterest is a digital pinboard application which started just last year but has quickly become one of the top 10 most trafficked social networking websites according to Hitwise. During the second week in December the website had over 11 million visitors.  Pinterest is a great visual tool which can help libraries draw in their readers by setting up pin boards of book covers to alert library patrons of new acquisitions or recommended readings. Create separate boards for different book categories such as: fiction, non-fiction, young adult fiction, science fiction, horror, travel, most popular, recommended, etc.
