  2. 2. Pinterest vs Google Images for marketing? “In the early days of Pinterest, there was carefully curated content; as it exploded, it became a vast landfill of images with no value-add – users didn’t add any context to why they posted the image. With so many images and without context, users will have to resort to search to find what is valuable, making it less and less valuable to marketers.” - Dr. Augustine Fou Skip to the end for the tips for what to do.April 11, 2012 2
