Facebook and Twitter have a serious competition in the form of Pinterest. The new social network site has had an amazing growth from the start and got eleven million hits in just 1 month!

It is said that Pinterest can drive more traffic to your website than Facebook. So what is Pinterest? And how can you use its features for the advantage of your business?

Pinterest is a social sharing site. It uses a virtual pin board theme where you can pin images, videos and other content that you would like to share with other users.  It is easier for product based companies to use Pinterest than service based ones as the site is based heavily on image sharing. But many service companies are finding ways to use Pinterest for promotion.
