Unlike Facebook and Twitter, the third-most-popular social-networking site in the United States doesn’t charge businesses a dime to advertise their goods and services on its Pinboards. What’s the catch?
Pinterest is one of those social media networks that makes it easy for people to share visual contagious content with no cut and paste but just with a few clicks of a mouse. The power of the visual is its high share-ability.
What wildly popular social-network Pinterest lacks in revenue, it makes up for in users -- 20 million to be precise. It has yet to reveal a strategy, a new feature from online retailer Zappos could offer one possible business model.
