Glamourflage now also on Pinterest, the hottest new social media trend
If you haven’t checked Pinterest yet, well, you should. Not necessarily because you like the stuff going on there, but because the site managed to go viral after we thought we had seen it all in social networks, so they did something right.
First of all what is Pinterest? It’s a social networking and social publishing site based on photos. Something like Tumblr meets Flickr.
The idea is that each user has a theme board where he can pin stuff he likes from around the web, and everything is represented through images. The visual appeal of the site is what seems to have triggered its immense growth (it’s the fastest site in history to reach 10 million unique visitors per month).
Why should you care?
First and foremost because the people who created the site got many things right to make it such a hit, so there’s a lot to learn there.
Even if you are not planning to launch a social network anytime soon you can still use Pinterest to promote your sites, to expand your network and even to make some money directly with it.
In fact there are some people claiming to be making over $1000 daily from Pinterest already. Sure, many are spammers, but I suspect there are many white hat people taking benefit from the phenomenon as well, so check it out.
