, but I digress. Creative Social Media Campaigns for Christmas. Now that Halloween’s officially over there’s only one direction to go in for your businesses: towards the holiday season.

Their recent statistics focusing on the mobile share of time spent on the given site shows Pinterest with an impressive 88.1% – putting the site marginally behind Twitter, which has 88.4%, and Instagram (96.6%), and ahead of Facebook with its 64.6% – and the site is looking towards the travel industry as a means of protecting this status and advancing the brand.
Introducing Place Pins, for the explorer in all of us. About a year ago, we noticed Pinners creating more and more boards around the vacations they’re planning, special places near where they live and sites they want to see someday.
In fact, every day people Pin about 1.5 million places, and now there are more than 750 million Pins of these destinations on Pinterest. We asked ourselves, how can we help people turn their travel inspiration into reality? Today, we’re taking a first step toward that goal with Place Pins. Place Pins were designed to combine the beautiful imagery of a travel magazine with the utility of a map online so you can share it with friends. You can access them from anywhere on your Android device or iPhone, too, which means you can find new places on the go and even get directions! Place Pins also include extra details like the address and phone number right on the Pin so you can easily pull up useful info on a weekend adventure or before a night out.
