Pinterest has had amazing growth in recent months. Compared to Tumblr.com, a similar service provider, that launched in Feb. 2007.
Now if the growth from Sept 11 through Dec. 11 isn’t exciting enough, look at their growth during January 2012.
Traffic growth has slowed in 2012, but users are on the rise. Users have grown by 75% in 2012.
This user-base is NOT the typical user-base as early adopters of a new social media platform. Much of the female user-base is coming from middle America, not the west coast and not a young male audience like you often find are the early adopters in the highly tech savvy space of social media.
This user-base is also a much older audience. Often times you find the early adopters of a new social media platform are much younger with the bulk of the user-base falling between the ages of 20-30 yrs. old.
And in Sept. Shareaholic released a report showing that Pinterest ousted Yahoo in organic traffic taking over the #4 spot.
Large companies are joining. Using Pinterest to show their products, industry, related images, etc.
