Today’s connected world contains over 10 billion connected devices and accounts for over 1.5 billion monthly social media users. Pinterest accounts for around 70 million of these active users.
Pinterest is playing an important role in social networks pushing a more visually optimized experience for their users. Where Facebook made photos a vital part of online social media interaction, companies like Instagram and Pinterest have taken this idea to the next level with social networks that function almost exclusively on visual content.
Perhaps no social network though is quite as genius when it comes to business use and marketing than Pinterest.

Where Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram users are sharing photos of vacations, family, concerts, etc. Pinterest users are sharing products! From tattoo ideas to dresses, decorations, and recipes to try, Pinterest posts almost exclusively consist of calls to action for purchasing.
