Using Google+ Is The Best Way To Boost Your Website's Search Ranking With Social | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Pinterest: Everything You Need to Know About the Hottest Niche Site [INFOGRAPHIC] | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

I rescooped this from my topic Pinterest Watch, because I feel this infographic really gives you some insight into what's really happening on Pinterest and it's definitely something I want to bring to your attention.

 

If it makes sense, this site is a great mix in your marketing efforts. Niche sites, especially ones that are visual with less text are becoming more popular everyday and Pinterest is definitely leading the way. Take a quick look at what's happening.......

 

Intro:

 

"How fast is Pinterest growing? How many people work there? This infographic lays it out.

 

**Pinterest has emerged as the runaway social media hit of early 2012. You probably knew that already. But did you know the company just has 12 people? Or that 97% of Pinterest’s Facebook fans are women?

 

**Lemon.ly, a visual marketing firm, took a deep dive into the data to catalog Pinterest’s stunning rise and produced the infographic below.

 

**What’s clear is that with 10 million users, Pinterest has already made its mark in terms of web design influence, if nothing else.
