Social Dinosaurs vs Social Mammals

The Rise of Pinterest

Pinterest is growing fast – REAL fast. Last month it broke a record and became the fastest independent site to hit 10 million monthly uniques in the U.S. While Facebook and Google are battling for social-world domination, Pinterest is recruiting more and more users by the day. I personally get a notification about a new friend signing up or following me almost on a daily basis. The best part – people seem to enjoy it much more than, say, Google Plus, which launched with high expectations but for now doesn’t live up to its promise. Unlike GPlus, Pinterest is not another Facebook imitation, as it brings a different sort of experience and value to its members. I won’t give you a full review of its features here but instead I’ll let you do your own research. In the meanwhile, let’s sit back and enjoy watching Google and Facebook battle like the two dinosaurs they are.
