Think about all the social networks that people look at every day. Think about all the connections and all the possible updates/posts/tweets/statuses/pins that people see. You need your update to break through these and get noticed.
In place of Pinterest's activity feed, the company has installed a new tool called "News." The feed displays boards where your recent pins have been repinned, creating a feed of potentially relevant content that users can peruse from their own profiles or those of others.
According to an entry in Pinterest's help center, News is meant to foster content discovery. "To make relevant and interesting content easier to find, we are introducing News," Pinterest writes. "We think this will help pinners like you find more relevant boards and pins more easily."
Pinterest began testing News among a gradual population of users on Jan. 16. It is unclear precisely when News will roll out to the entire network, although the company anticipates "over the next few weeks." Pinterest could not be reached for comment.

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.
As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.
Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.
Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.
In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand?.

Your friends have shared their life with Facebook. Now, Facebook is making sure you can actually find what they've shared.
The social network unveiled a new search tool, Graph Search, that Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg described as the "third pillar" of Facebook, alongside News Feed and Timeline.
Graph Search, which is initially launching in beta as a limited preview for U.S. audiences only, will allow users to uncover social connections between other members of the site and quickly identify which friends have been to certain places, "liked" specific topics or appeared in certain photos.
"To say that Search Engine Optimization is a volatile industry would be a gross understatement. The ever-changing landscape of search rewards the most inquisitive, innovative and agile, while it punishes the devious and the stubborn. It seems that now, as 2012 comes to a close, the SEO industry is once again on the brink of a tidal shift that few are pivoting for.
While the aspects of technical SEO, specifically site architecture, will most likely never go away, many of the tactics that used to win at search simply don’t work anymore. At the same time, previously weaker or unproven tactics like social media and content marketing continue to grow in effectiveness while influencing SEO tactics.
The result is a new discipline: inbound marketing, which combines SEO, content marketing and social media.
One common thread amongst the three components of inbound marketing is content (which is different than content marketing):
1) Content Marketing: the pursuit of developing and distributing content that solves customer problems and generates leads.
2) SEO: the pursuit of getting your content to appear in the search results.
3) Social Media: a delivery system for your content".
