The Rise of Pinterest

If you haven’t heard of Pinterest, you might be living under a rock. The image sharing site has catapulted into the limelight, becoming the hotspot for fashionistas, crafters and all inspiration-searching internet folk.

Lucky for you, AddThis supports the Pin It button, which has become a hot commodity for our users. And who can blame them with Mashable recently reporting the service as a top traffic driver, especially for women’s lifestyle sites.

We even took a dive into our own network’s data and things look as you would expect. Up and to the right:


So, don’t be the last one on the bandwagon. Get your AddThis implementation set up with a Pin It button, watch your photos get the inspirational love they deserve and turn that rock you’ve been living under into something like this!

  • Thanks for your thoughts with this an amazing submit, You’ve actually written a quite good quality post here.
