While the new look of Pinterest got so much attention last week, there is still a lot of word flying around about the new analytics features that came along with the new look. With these upgrades Pinterest proves it’s seriousness in the Social Media arena. It is noteworthy that Pinterest not only introduced cosmetic changes but also a utility tool that will woo the brand owners.
Unlike Twitter which is moving towards a commercial model with its Promotional Tweets and lets users depend on third party tools, Pinterest is setting its goals towards acquiring more users who treat it as a ecosystem where they can spend hours, much like Facebook.
Anyway, will see how it all measure up in future. We just fooled around on Pinterest, much at the behest of Christine from Florida.
@organicsocial Fool around with it a bit and let me know what you think!
