Pinterest is now the 3rd most popular social network site in the U.S.
, and ecommerce stores can leverage its popularity to significantly increase traffic and sales (as seen in this Pinterest Ecommerce Infographic).
To better understand how Pinterest is impacting the ecommerce industry, Shopify analyzed data from over 25,000 online stores. Interestingly, referral traffic from Pinterest to Shopify stores is equal to traffic coming from Twitter; of that traffic, shoppers are 10% more likely to make a purchase compared to those who arrive from other social sites. Of those purchases, the average order is double the average order from Facebook. Pinterest has already become a huge player in the world of ecommerce.

Google+ now finally open to the public “might” make me change my perception. Google+ (plus) launched early July on an invite only basis, which seems to have heavily skewed towards a geeky male US-based audience. At the moment, Google+ really has nothing to offer in the social end … yes, the way you organize friends is better (IMO) than Facebook, and … … … well, that’s it … You might have heard me claim that it will compete against iCloud in the quest to conquer your hard data (photos, videos, music, files) - but that’s another post on its own.
