Pinterest is now the third most popular social network online, behind only Facebook and Twitter, so there was no better time to focus on this marketing goldmine. Now that social media is turning highly visual, Pinterest is the perfect site for businesses to turn to when it comes to their online marketing strategies.

Instead, Pinterest is a culture of curators. It’s an online community where users can share interesting information with one another, but what makes it different is that it is all visual - pictures that range from pretty home furnishings, to cute animals, to pictures of products that users want to purchase or already have purchased.
