Pinterest A ‘Creator’ But Facebook A ‘Participator’

However, while segregating the whole cycle of a marketing process, Facebook and Pinterest have got their own importance and dominance with respect to various stages. When a product/ brand is created, it’s Pinterest that acts as more effective network as ‘Creator’ than Facebook. The activity of Discovering and Pining a product is more preferred with 55% Pinterest users than Facebook (37%).
