The Growth of Pinterest

4 Mar

According to Nielsen’s 2012 Social Media Report, Pinterest is here to stay. It was quoted saying that “the big three sites (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) are about to become the big four […] Pinterest showed the most growth year-over-year for social desktop usage, social web usage and social app usage.”


As the graph shows, Pinterest has experienced a +1,047% increase in users in 2012 alone.  The next closest competitor was Google+ with an +80% increase, which is not even close to the vast numbers Pinterest is experiencing.  This graph supports what many professional social media analysts are saying in that, with experiencing this much rapid growth, Pinterest is a website that is here to stay.

Stay tuned for my next post!
