    Nice visual explanation of Pinterest! Thought you might be interested in an article I just wrote concerning “101 Best Stores to Follow on Twitter”: http://www.joeshopping.com/blog/3111/101-Best-Stores-to-Follow-on-Pinterest

    It took a lot of research to put this post together, and it was quite surprising how many popular merchants don’t even have an account on Pinterest. Just as bad, a lot of stores do have accounts, but have done next to nothing with them. So those who are doing it correctly, certainly deserve some praise and support. But in this day and age, it’s shocking how many brands just can’t grasp social media at all. It’s pure brand awareness, tied in with social interaction in a really fun way. Stores that “get it,” are hitting it out of the park. Stores that don’t, are just setting up a page and wondering why it’s not giving them any boost.
