Popular social media website Pinterest has captured a lot of attention from people all over the web by allowing users to “pin” images on their pinboards. It’s popular because of its graphic nature and the simplicity in design. But it’s also been good for traffic for a lot of websites, which is why the site has continued to grow.
Recently, however, Pinterest entered into a partnership with YouTube that allows users to pin videos on their pinboards.
This will only serve to make the site even more popular. If you thought that pinning images was fun and exciting, then wait until you see your friends’ videos. You can see the popularity of videos as people share them on Facebook and Google+. Now, you can see your friends post them to Pinterest – and you can as well.
I’m curious to know. Do you use Pinterest? If so, do you post videos to your pinboard? How often do you use Pinterest? And have you seen an increase to your website’s traffic since you started?
It’s just a matter of time, I think, before Pinterest positions itself as one of the top 5 most popular social media sites. So far, it’s Facebook, YouTube, Google+, Twitter, and LinkedIn. When do you think Pinterest will move up into the top 5 and who will it knock out?
