Pinterest Partners With YouTube

How do you make a social media website better? Add videos of course.

At least that’s what Pinterest has done – by partnering with YouTube.

YouTube is one of the top 5 social media websites online. The other 4 are Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and Twitter. But Pinterest could very well enter the top 5 if it continues to grow. It’s had a pretty steady growth pattern since its inception last year.

What’s made Pinterest so popular is its simple design and the fact that users can “pin” images to their pinboards. That has made Pinterest a unique social media website, plus it delivers a lot of traffic to websites of users who can effectively pin their own images. Add videos to the mix and I think all of that will simply be enhanced for its users.

The future belongs to videos. YouTube in particular has captured the user-generated video market and it’s only going to grow as well.

How do you use Pinterest? Are you pinning images? Will you pin your own videos or someone else’s? Will you even pin videos?

I’d be curious to know if Pinterest is in your marketing plan and if so, how so? Will you consider it for the future?
