    It is a social bookmarking service which is doing this in a different way. They bookmarking links as the pins are pinned upon notice board and that's why it is named PINterest.

    Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. You can post interesting stuff and it gets 'pinned' on your profile. More at http://pinterest.com/about/

    Pinterest is a site that encourages users to post images and photographs that they do not own the rights to. That is the purpose of the site, even though they thinly pretend it isn't the case. It's a giant smorgasbord of stolen content. Nothing but stolen content.

    Being popular on Pinterest results in nearly zero traffic for your website. Pinterest users STAY on pinterest. Your work is routinely not attributed, and if it is, it is lost upon 'repin.' Visit pinterest and see for yourself. Would YOU have motive to go to the original website when other people's FULL-SIZE images, hosted on Pinterest's own servers, are already there on display?

    Pinterest can monetize content that YOU created. It is a vampire. You'll get no exposure, and no traffic from all the pinterest attention.

    They make it difficult to opt out, as I have static code. I'm filing DMCAs up the wazoo.

    Trust me, I target the ladies. If your content consists of photographs that they can fully view on Pinterest, they have no incentive to visit your site - and trust me, they don't.

    I'm sure it's different if you are peddling a cute product that they go gaga over, and can buy. YAY SHOPPING!

    Obviously, if you can exploit them with affiliate links, have a ball. It's not because Pinterest doesn't work with my model, that there isn't cash to be made in other ways.

    It's basically social bookmarking with images.

    It can get pretty addictive after you spend a while on there :p

    Not only that, but those content stealing pirates deserve nothing better. I'm rooting for the spambots, and I'm joining the fray.

    A rock is a rock helleborine, you can use it to kill or to build. Same is here, you can use these tools to promote your stuff alone, or manage your stuff. The most succesfull marketers out there agree.

    If you spam/steal etc. then you have no quality, something with no quality won't last. But quality... then we are talking!

    Pinterest is social media platform and will be soon included in top 5 online brands of 2012. Its good for bookmarking but best for eCommerce sites and the majority of visitors of this site are 52% females plus its good referral site. I love it.
