World of Social Media is quite elaborated. But, Pinterest has been mistakenly considered as Social Media platform whereas it is an independent concept that has very little to do with social networking. You can call it a collector of images and visuals.
How people erroneously believe that it is a Social Media channel is because of its tendency to display images shared by the users. The world of e-commerce is all about imagery.

Earlier, Facebook and Twitter were doing the deed for e-commerce business holders in spreading their offerings to the world. But considering the affection that Pinterest has received, it has also attested itself to be a right route towards success.
