Pinterest is popular among women, in particular young women. It’s a dream to use Pinterest if you’re a man. It’s the ultimate free research tool that teaches you all you need to know about women. The answer to ‘what women want’ is finally available and it’s called ‘Pinterest’.
Since the target group is so clearly defined it’s easy for companies to form an opinion on Pinterest. Every company in the fashion and design industry is in a hurry to discover Pinterest. Women compile a wishlist and influence each other’s consumer behavior. The instant Pinterest adds an e-commerce option to their user interface all bets will be off. Companies from other sectors that are not (stereo)typically feminine will have nothing to do with Pinterest.
