Pinterest named as one of top social trends sites in 2011:

The platform is incredibly simple to use — almost to the point where it is refreshing to see a new social networking site that fulfills a purpose we might not have realized we wanted. Users can create “boards” to which they “pin” images with very short descriptions (i.e. article title, price tag amount, etc.) that link back to the original source.

Essentially, they are visual bookmarks but designed in a way that is organized and can be shared with friends. It gets even more social as you can elect to allow friends to pin photos and info to your own boards, and vice versa. (I’ve noticed that this is particularly popular with friends planning major trips and weddings.)

Given those two example topics, it’s not terribly surprising that the majority of users are female (58 percent) and between the ages 25 and 44 (59 percent). Nevertheless, once Pinterest breaks the invite-only barrier and further develops its platform, we will likely see much more about this site in 2012.
