PinExt Everything You Need to Know About Pinterest [9 Infographics]

There’s no denying that there is a new kid on the social media block and her name is Pinterest and she is creating a big BUZZ.  Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board that originally appealed to mostly woman but has now been grasped by businesses and savvy marketers.  Similar to the new visual direction of Facebook’s timeline, Pinterest is also visual.

I am a huge fan of infographics, in fact, follow me on Pinterest to see my board on Fantastic Infographics.  There are some great infographics explaining the how’s and why’s of Pinterest.  Using some of the best visual examples I could find I will explain Pinterest.
