This piece was written by Dave Copeland for Readwriteweb. There have been many articles about Pinterest but if you do nothing else, read the white paper by Engauge and report they're referring to. It is absolutely the best one I've seen to date. (more details below)
The most important thing in this piece is the report, here's what you'll see:
A new Engauge white paper breaks down:
**the make-up of the average Pinterest user
**shows that the end result of less reading is more of a focus on content curation than creation.
**The timing of that trend, combined with a stunning design when Internet users are focusing more on visual than text, has allowed Pinterest to explode in popularity.
This is what caught my attention - a quote from a user:
"When I'm looking for new trends on specific topics like fashion or birthday party themes, I now search Pinterest first -- not Google." - Karah Street

Pinterest es un buen medio para la educación del paciente, ya que muchas personas aprenden mejor visualmente.
Pinterest es una red social basada en la imagen que se ha disparado en popularidad en el último par de años. Pinterest funciona como una forma de organizar visualmente las cosas en el Internet a través de "Juntas", que actúan como el tipo de carpetas, para organizar los pensamientos en determinadas categorías o intereses. A medida que más y más personas utilizan Internet para buscar sobre la salud, Pinterest es una forma de organizar la información que encuentran, permitiendo también a compartir contenido fácilmente con los demás. El otro beneficio potencial de Pinterest es llegar a las personas cuando están en Internet "mentalidades diferentes." Puede ser una forma de llegar al paciente cuando no están necesariamente interesados en un problema particular en este momento (es decir, la búsqueda de la salud específica información para un problema que tienen ahora mismo). Pinterest puede proporcionar un medio para llegar a los pacientes a recordar a la gente de los muchos aspectos de su vida en el que la salud juega un papel importante. -

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to let your scoop.it content to reach more people and to get discovered by those who are not yet aware of you, the new Pinterest integration in Scoop.it should certainly be a welcome addition.
With this new addition, not only you can share your curated stories inside your Scoop.it newsradar with your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Wordpress friends, but you can also "pin" selected ones to create alternative "collections" on Pinterest.
N.B.: To access the new "Pin it" button on Scoop.it, click the sharing button below any scoop and you will find it there next to the G+ one.

Jan Gordon: This is a post after my own heart, brought to my attention by gdecugis, thanks Guillaume, you know I love Scoopit, glad to spread the word about this winning duo, Pinterest and Scoopit.
Feel free to visit my other topic, Pinterest Watch to learn more about this social network
Here's my commentary based on my experience of using Scoopit and Pinterest
To me, Pinterest and Scoopit go hand and hand. They are both visual and it's important to consider if you're on Scoopit already or thinking about it, expressing yourself on both platforms, (if it makes sense for your business) because it can be very powerful.
Here are some of the reasons it can help your business:
Scoopit is a platform that showcases your expertise, share your hobbies and other interests through content in a beautiful format. It is part of your online personna and it's a vibrant community I have met some wonderful people here.
Pinterest is also a community with some of the same people from Scoopit and many others, (new people are joining everyday). Linking your posts from Scoopit to your pins on Pinterest not only drives traffic to your scoopit site and visa versa but those people can see another side of you that you can't express there.
Pinterest is like a delicious menu of visuals that captivate and attract people to you. I have put all my business boards at the top and my interest boards underneath them.
Pinterest gives people the ability to see who you are beyond your posts. If you're a brand, this is where you can create an online story of text and visuals that gives consumers points of entry through common interests. It's a brilliant way to do business.
I could go on and on but I'll let you see for yourself how I've combined Scoopit and Pinterest together which continues to produce unbelievable results, increase in traffic and brand new relationships from both sites.
