Poor Flickr. They really dropped the ball here. Flickr was the first major photo-based social network. And now to see Instagram and Pinterest so popular right now… it almost brings a tear to our eye. Although Instagram definitely has a very loyal user base, pinners on Pinterest are almost like crackheads or junkies.
Flowtown and Column Five created this infographic that helps explain why people are so addicted to Pinterest. Look out Facebook! According to the infographic, Pinterest users spend an average of 98 minutes on the site per month, third only to Tumblr (2.5 hours) and Facebook (7 hours). What about you? Are you addicted to Pinterest? We wonder how long it will be until there’s an AA meeting for Pinterest addicts.
