Pinterest Drives More Traffic Than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn Combined [STUDY]

Pinterest Drives More Traffic Than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn Combined [STUDY] | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it
Pinterest now beats YouTube, Reddit, Google+, LinkedIn and MySpace for percentage of total referral traffic in January.


Wow!  Pinterest is growing like gangbusters, like an 8000% increase, (another Pinterest post in my Peer/Social Learning & Curation stream here.)  


It remains to be seen what that means for the company and its sustainability.  The monster growth it's showing - is, let's say, promising?


Excerpts from Mashable:


The darling network of brides-to-be, fashionistas and budding bakers now beats YouTube, Reddit, Google+, LinkedIn and MySpace for percentage of total referral traffic in January, according to a Shareaholic study.


Pinterest accounted for 3.6% of referral traffic, while Twitter just barely edged ahead of the newcomer, accounting for 3.61% of referral traffic. In July 2011, Pinterest accounted for just 0.17% of referral traffic, proving the site’s blockbuster growth.

The Best Image Editing Apps for Macs besides PhotoShop

The Best Image Editing Apps for Macs besides PhotoShop | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

There are a handful of good image editors on the Mac, but Photoshop has long been the king of them all.  What else is out there, including good & free?"


I've used an older version of the expensive Photoshop.  Big learning curve.  It is also called bloatware by some and essential, robust by others.


I've also used GIMP, free.


I'm curious about Pixen.   Anyone used it?


See the comments and full article on Lifehacker for more, as well as the commentary on the Lifehacker Facebook page.  Other tools are being suggested.

I'm posting this also to our Social Media Learning Lab Facebook page.
