Pinterest is now the 3rd most popular social media website with an astounding
10.4 million registered users, over 97% of those Pinterest users are women! (Techcrunch) Well, do you blame us?... Who doesn't enjoy beautiful images, after all we are visual beings too. We have the capacity to enjoy beautiful homes, fashion, shoes, perfumes, funny images,... you name it! Pinterest provides us with a place to store and share those images! A friendly word of caution, social media's newest sweetheart could have you uploading, liking and re-pinning for hours before you know it. .
If you have been living and breathing Pinterest, you are probably already using their browser extensions. I use it often to pin photos from our MACsWomen Blog and images I find interesting across the web. One of the places the Pinterest browser extension does not work though is on Facebook, the #1 most popular social media website. It was slightly irritating not being able to pin from my fan page, so I made a mental note to do some research and find out what was available, if anything, that would allow pinning from Facebook.
Not so long after, I was reading an article about a new startup Bazaart, a fashion catalog for iPAD, that mentioned they had also created an app that allows you to pin from Facebook. Just like magic! I found us an app!
