I was introduced to Pinterest by one of my students about six months before the boom that made Pinterest a household word.


I wish I'd seized the opportunity and jumped right in. However, at first I just didn't get it.  Now in hindsight I realize that Pinterest is a curation platform-- one that appeals to millions.  Needless to say I'm now curating a dozen different interests!

I'd like to see actual data. The Infographic is one year old :)
Peg Corwin's curator insight, February 29, 11:26 AM

Do you have a Food-related business?  Was interested to see that 57% of Pinners interact with food-related pins.  It's their top category.
