Number of the day: 400% [Pinterest]

That’s the percentage growth in unique visitor numbers  to Pinterest from September to December 2011.

There’s a bit of buzz around the site at the moment, led by Pete Cashmore’s article for CNN.

It’s a content curation social media network, or “online pinboard” as it calls itself, for sharing things you like on the internet.

Brands are getting involved, too. Have a look at Whole Foods Market’s pinboards on Pinterest.

Apparently, it drives “more visitors to third-party websites than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn combined” (Pete Cashmore’s article). (In the last month, 70 people have come through to this blog via Pinterest)
