Pinterest is the fastest growing social networking platform, ever!And why is this?Pinterest is a network built for sharing and organising images, whether it is your own photographs or other images that you find on the internet. Statistics show that our brains process visual information 60,000 times faster than text and 90% of the information that enters our mind is visual. So it is not surprising why a visually focussed social networking platform has flown through the roof!
