British multinational Topshop, that retails shoes make-up, and accessories, has teamed up with social media site Pinterest to launch a Christmas campaign ‘Dear Topshop’ which centers around customers creating and submitting boards for the holiday season. Customers in the flagship stores can now pin and share products on giant touchscreens.
Pinterest is all-set to launch Promoted Pins today. According to an announcement made on the Pinterest blog, each promoted pin will be clearly marked.
Here's what the social network has to say about Promoted Pins:
Pinterest has revealed how it will be making money from online photo pinning site, promoted pins. The scrapbooks that are shared across Pinterest have made the pinboards a popular destination for socializing. This specifically revolves around products. Moreover, Pinterest has become a popular spot for brands like Lowe's who prefer to build a merchandising vehicle presence to get people into online stores.
According to the latest survey, 41 percent of the eCommerce content is shared on Pinterest, which makes it the top social network in the online retail category. 37 percent content is shared on Facebook, while Twitter acquires third rank with 17 percent share. Pinterest is also a favorite among travel and hospitality sites, acquiring 19 percent of total share while Facebook still acquires 58 percent share.
Pinterest has rolled out a new design, which it had been testing since January. Pinterest is amongst the fastest growing social media website for sharing and collecting photos, news and other stories from around the web.
The purpose of the redesign is to make it easier for the users to navigate from one page to another. Also, much greater stress has been given on content discovery. The redesign aims at increasing the on-site time of every Pinterest User.
One of the fastest growing social media website in the current digital market is Pinterest without any doubt. What was missing on this social media site was a proper analytic tool to analyze and measure the user data. Not any more!
Pinterest, one of the fastest growing social sharing and media site has nofollow links, at last. Since its launch last year, Pinterest gathered a huge following, all thanks to its highly interactive platform. Till recently the social site sported DoFollow links, perhaps to get more users on board. However, after a lot of maltreatment of dofollow links, the site is now using the nofollow attribute (the attribute is a way to tell search engines not to follow links from the page they may have found).
