Brands Wanting More Leverage On Pinterest Should Follow The Lead Of Better Homes & Gardens

pinterest-logo-220Social media metrics firm Unmetric evaluated over 5,000 branded Pinterest pages to determine which brands are leading on the social networking site built on images. The data gathered spanned from all time up until March 14, 2013 to identify the top five brands in five different categories: most followers, most comments, most likes, most pins and most repins. Of all the brands succeeding on Pinterest, Better Homes and Gardens made the most appearances, showing up in three of the five categories.

    Hi Amy! Thanks for writing about our report! If there’s one thing that we discovered while compiling the report it’s that Pinterest truly is a woman’s world! In the top 50 brands you could only say that one or two were male orientated.
