Pinterest races past 10 million visitors, propelled by young midwestern women

TechCrunch | LLsocial

Pinterest, the hot new network for social curation (scrapbookmarking?), has raced past 10 million unique monthly visitors "faster than any other standalone site in history" as tracked by comScore. Josh Constine says it has 11.7 million unique visitors in the U.S., led by "18-34-year-old upper income women from the American heartland." The latest question going forward is, will users be turned off by blogger Josh Davis' discovery that Pinterest is making money by quietly claiming credit for traffic that users' pins drive to ecommerce sites resulting in sales? Or is that just clever business? || Earlier: Sharing sites like Pinterest raise copyright concerns (Poynter) | It's time for journalists to pay attention to Pinterest (Poynter) | More Pinterest coverage
