    Great infographic! The difference in top interests between UK and US Pinterest users is fascinating. I suppose it is also reflective of the gender demographics for both countries. I’m so interested in how different countries interpret new social media platforms and find use for them. The drastic differences in Pinterest usage worldwide shows that there is still loads of potential for Pinterest to reach an even larger audience, and influence branding/marketing significantly in coming months.

    I’ve been developing the web for over 12 years now and I still don’t get what Pinterest is or why anyone should care.
