“Pinterest is social media’s rising star — and now has the traffic stats to prove it.
The darling network of brides-to-be, fashionistas and budding bakers now beats YouTube, Reddit, Google+, LinkedIn and MySpace for percentage of total referral traffic in January, according to a Shareaholic study.
Pinterest accounted for 3.6% of referral traffic, while Twitter just barely edged ahead of the newcomer, accounting for 3.61% of referral traffic. In July 2011, Pinterest accounted for just 0.17% of referral traffic, proving the site’s blockbuster growth.” -Zoe Fox from Mashable

Now I’m not hating on anyone as that might be your thing, but I would rather spend my time searching for fashion, beauty, and sweet places to visit.
