Pinterest is still operating as a “private beta” social media network but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming the 16th most popular website in the United States. In fact half of all Pinterest traffic currently comes from US visitors.
While the site definitely gained its momentum in the United States the infographic shown below by Color Jam demonstrates how far the company has come in a relatively short period of time.
Pinterest now includes more than 12 million actives users and receives 16.23 million unique visitors in February, 2012.
As you’ll notice on the Infographic map each country shows three numbers, correlating to the popularity of Pinterest versus other social networks in each country. For each percentage we are given the average number of users and pae views each country offers to Pinterest on a daily basis.
I was most interested to learn that Canadians are flocking to the site, accounting for 3.6 percent of the user base and 3.3 percent of all page views.
Are you one of the lucky users who have been able to experience Pinterest first hand? What do you think of the new visually appealing social network?
