Pinterest, the pin board style photo sharing website has revolutionized photo sharing and provides its users a unique way to engage with their favorite brands and discover new ones. Pinterest, with over 70 million users has innovated various ideas like holiday giving guide, related pins, holiday gifts feed and a lot more to make the holiday shopping season even easier for shoppers who are confused with gift selection for their close peers and relatives.

Although, Pinterest user-base is very less, when compared to other social networking sites, the activity or engagement rate by its users is much more significant than any other social media network. More than 80% of content on Pinterest is re-pins, which means users are highly enthusiastic and engage actively on the platform. Pinterest is considered to be sticky as users on the platform are totally addicted and spend hours together browsing for various suggestions, recommendations and shared pins from their friends and others. Top brands like WalMart, Zappos and Disney also showcase their desirable wares in pin board style to attract website visitors.
