It seems like every day, a new social media site emerges, and right now, everyone’s talking about Pinterest.

But what exactly is Pinterest? Essentially, it’s your own personal online bulletin board where you can “pin” images and sort them into categories such as home, décor and food. Forget cutting out and earmarking your magazines! Now, you can share your visual interests and inspiration with your followers via Pinterest.

After you pin each image, they’re also linked back to their original source, making it a great source of traffic for retailers. According to the below infographic (straight from mashable), it’s even driving more retail traffic than Google+.

What do you think of Pinterest? Should your company be getting on board in order to drive more traffic to your page?
