And it’s not alone.

Mobile photo-sharing site Instagram is also growing like crazy, and I’ll bet you’re seeing a lot more photo sharing in your newsfeeds on Facebook and Google+, too.

It makes sense.

Photos can communicate a lot more information with just a glance, and quick skimming of information is the name of the game today … for much of your audience, that’s all the time they’re going to give you to get their attention.

    Hi Mike,
    Interesting post. I’d love to post something to pInterest, but haven’t had any success getting a response from them to my (repeated) membership applications. Is there some kind of trick to getting on this site?

    Thanks for any tips you can provide.

      Just sent you an invite, Pam. Enjoy!

    please stop pinning on Pinterest… It’s not for type of thing and you all are ruining it for those of us who actually enjoy it.  Not everything is for promoting your business!

      I wish I could control what sites people use and which ones they didn’t … it sure would make some sites more appealing!

      I completely agree with you about not using every site to promote your business. I’m not encouraging people to post their own items (although I’m sure many already are). Instead, I’m trying to make the point that, if you have created something worth sharing, it’s worth taking an extra step to make it easier for your audience to share.

      Personally, I really enjoy using the site (and not for all things business) … it’s a great way to get a real view into what people like and want. Just like any other social networking site, if a business is there but they’re not sharing compelling information, it’s not going to pick up many followers … ultimately, the cream will rise to the top and you won’t have to worry about seeing the businesses that are just using the site to promote themselves.

        I think that a lot of companies and brands are “cheapening” the fun and experience of these social networking sites, but I guess there’s really nothing that can be done about it. As time goes by, people just become more desensitized to all of the marketing. That’s why marketers get paid so much, they have to find new ways to sell stuff! hahaha :)

        But thanks for the article… It’s super helpful. I was like, “WHAT THE HELL IS PINTREST?! THAT’S A STUPID NAME!” But now, I see a little bit of value in it. Time to check it out.

          It’s all fun and games until the marketers get involved, right? Thanks for stopping by, Tommy … good luck diving into Pinterest!

      There’s really nothing that can be done about it. hahaha They have to do everything they can to sell their stuff.
