Even Pinterest CEO, Ben Silbermann, wants you to stop treating Pinterest like a Social Network.  Pinned items aren’t inherently there to be shared; rather, Silbermann says, they’re a kind of bookmark that people use as ways of filing and organizing their lives.

Pinterest is a “catalog of ideas” that has a different objective than a Social Network site.  Social Networks are used to share information with other people to like, where Pinterest is a site where you like and save things that are of interest to you and you alone, it is self-serving. read more

Do you instantly think of Millennials or a younger crowd when you think Social Media?  If you do, you would be incorrect to assume this group were Social Media fanatics.

A recent Nielsen report released this past January revealed that Gen Xers were more obsessed with Social Media than Millennials.

Adults 35 to 49 spent an average of 6 hours and 58 minutes a week on the Social Networks compared to only 6 hours and 19 minutes by their younger counterparts.

Sean Casey, the president of Nielsen’s social division, said the finding initially surprised him because “the going thought is that social is vastly owned by the younger generation.” read more

  • 52% of marketing professionals worldwide list video as content that provides the best ROI
  • 93% of marketers use video for online marketing, sales and communication

Really, of all the Social Networks it would seem Pinterest would have been on board with native video ads much sooner.  In the last year videos on the site have increased 60%.

With workout videos, beauty instruction, fashion it makes absolute sense that videos are becoming popular on Pinterest.

Because of the interest and popularity of video, Pinterest has just added a new option which allows businesses to use video for marketing purposes.  Called “Promoted Video” this offers businesses the ability to expand the video and offer a separate tab that lists relevant products below the video content. See how it works in the video below: read more
