What Writers & Publishers Need To Know About Pinterest

SocialTimes editor Devon Glenn shared some surprising Pinterest facts on today’s edition of the Morning Media Menu. She also talked about a special font to help people with dyslexia read online and how Twitter has changed NASA’s communications department.

Here’s more from SocialTimes:

70% of the clicks happen within the first 2 days of a pin’s lifespan on Pinterest. The remaining 30% of the clicks extend to 30 days after the pin is posted and beyond. Piquora advises brands to have a plan for removing old pages or handling products that go out of stock. 11% of all the pins on Pinterest come from Tumblr … Pinners place 95% of their pins into boards named after categories such as fashion, accessories, beauty, and furniture.
