Pinterest – A Potential Goldmine for Brands!

In my view Facebook and to some extent Twitter are real successes in the social media story. Google+ might be growing but it has a long way to go yet. LinkedIn is nice, but it’s focus is on professional profiles. So when a new social product come up for discussion, I get a little apprehensive.

I felt the same way about Pinterest, before testing it out. I mean what it essentially did, was allowing users to share URLs with friends on Twitter and Facebook in an organized way. Social bookmarking is not exactly something new.

That said, Pinterest is very addictive and has a simple way of sharing things you are interested in.

A Potential Goldmine for Brands

First thing that strike you about Pinterest are the number of brands being endorsed by people. Pinterest does not really concentrate on building a network but more like a showcase of your interests. Most people share these things publicly, as it is about endorsing a product, brand, book or even a type of service.

At the moment, Pinterest is only by invitation and still is attracting a lot of interest. But the next few months will tell us, if it a social product that will continue to grow and become more interactive.
