Pinterest Launches Curated Newsletters

Pinterest Launches Curated Newsletters | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it
Pinterest has rolled out a newsletter that emails users curated content.

 

From Mashable: "Users on Pinterest usually have to seek interesting content for themselves, but a new feature quietly rolled out today drives them to even more personalized content.


...many users are sure to appreciate Pinterest’s new weekly email newsletter, making it easier to find even more great pins and helping them keep tabs on how their own pins are doing.


Mimicking the website’s pinboard style, each pin or board in the email is linked to the website, but users are unable to re-pin or like a post directly from the newsletter.

 

The newsletter lists a few popular boards, pins from friends that might be of interest and a useful feature for brands especially: your most popular pins of the week."

Study: 1/3 of Women in U.S. Use Pinterest

Study: 1/3 of Women in U.S. Use Pinterest | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Pinterest's popularity in the U.S. has surged in the last year, particularly among women, according to a new study....

 

The social bookmarking service is now used by more than one-fifth (21%) of American adults, up from 15% a year earlier, according to a survey of U.S. social networking habits from Pew Research. That puts Pinterest slightly ahead of Twitter and Instagram, though all three are well behind Facebook.

 

Pew's data suggests that Pinterest has experienced strong growth among women in particular. One-third of U.S. women now use Pinterest, up from 25% as reported in a similar study in February. Just 8% of men use Pinterest, though that's up from 5% previously...

Social Networking For Marketers: How Pinterest Crushes Facebook

Social Networking For Marketers: How Pinterest Crushes Facebook | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Pinterest has a higher concentration of people who are in a ‘buy’ state of mind, while Facebook users are more interested in interacting with friends - and brands.... Understanding what people do on different social networks is the key to effectively using those networks for marketing. Companies currently spend 8.4% of their marketing budgets on social media, and that’s expected to grow to 21.6% in the next five years. But with so many social networks competing to grab marketing dollars, determining the most effective channels can be extremely difficult. To illustrate, let’s look at how Facebook and Pinterest stack up against one another. Different Networks For Different Reasons While both Facebook and Pinterest offer deep customer segmentations and user engagement, it would be a mistake to target audiences in the same way across both networks. For example, you wouldn’t market your product to someone shopping at a trendy boutique the same way you would to someone walking down the street with their friends. In a store, you’d likely look to make a sale, while on the street you’d probably have more luck building brand awareness....

Elsie Whitelock's insight:

It is so intersting that Pintrest is gaining so much traction;  I equate this to the old model of a beautiful house and home print magazine where females sit back with a cup of tea (or latte) and browse beautiful images allowing them to escapethe day's pressures for a little while. Also adding to this, is  the fact that Pinterest is so incredibly easy to use. Unlike google+ !!!!
