The case for investing in Pinterest for business purposes is well past the tipping point. Check out these Pinterest facts:

The Problem with Business Pins Today

If you have shared Pinterest Pins on Twitter and Facebook using Pinterest’s cross-posting feature, you know the output is not ideal. Facebook only shows a thumbnail and Twitter displays just text and a link (see examples of both images below).

According to Mary Potter, Professor of Psychology, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT, it only takes 13 milliseconds for the brain to understand and process an image. How fast is 13 milliseconds? Turn on a light switch. Your brain processes an image 3 milliseconds faster than it takes the electricity to turn on the light bulb.

Do images make an impact in social media?
