Why is Pinterest so Addictive?

Earlier this month, we posted a two-part blog series about Pinterest. We explained what Pinterest is and why it’s becoming a leading social network. We also shared tips and best practices for using Pinterest in the healthcare industry. What we didn’t explain is why Pinterest is so addictive!

So, why is Pinterest so addictive?

  • Pinterest’s image-focused design is very aesthetically pleasing.
  • The ability to “pin” and “repin” images from the web is convenient.
  • It’s a “refuge” from Facebook and Twitter for those who may be experiencing social media fatigue.
  • It’s simple. You can post with the click of a mouse!
