Businesses are scrambling to try to take advantage of Pinterest, the photo-sharing social network that’s taking the Web by storm. And the stakes are only going to get higher based on the site's rapid surge in popularity. There’s no doubt that Pinterest had a huge 2011, growing from just 1.68 million users at the end of September to over 7.2 million at year’s end. Moreover, Hitwise says that the social network is already the fifth best generator of e-commerce traffic among social networks and forums, behind only Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Yahoo Answers. Pretty impressive company, so stay tuned.
