Did you know that Pinterest is now the third most popular Social Media Network? Users spend over 98 minutes per month on the site, creeping closer to Tumblr at 2.5 hrs and it can be assumed that it may reach Facebook at 7 hrs. How do you think this happened? Pinterest took a very simplistic approach that people are attracted to. They take away confusion by creating a one-click wonder button that gives the user butterflies every time it’s clicked. Being able to instantly move images and files from one page to your own page with the click of a bookmark button on your browser has its appeal in many ways.

With topics ranging from women’s clothing, DIY tips, healthy recipes, makeup tricks, men’s sports, and so on, how can this site not be addictive – right? Okay, that’s not convincing enough … just check it out for yourself at And check out the infographic below to prove we’re not the only ones.

There have been more and more PR and Social Media agencies joining by the day too. We’re not sure if L’Acadian will have a Pinterest page just yet, but it would be a good excuse to play more, right?
