The rise of New Social Networks : Path and Pinterest
Path and Pinterest are two of the fastest growing social networks on the internet. Path, an app for photo sharing on the go, has quickly gained size and scope to become a social app more than 2 million users strong since its recent relaunch. Path enables people to create an intimate mobile social graph for journaling the details of their lives, and it is taking the social network scene by storm.
Pinterest, on the other hand, is a content sharing web site where people who like different products, pictures, and web sites can “pin”, or post their favorite artifacts for the world to see, share, and repin. The site has exploded in popularity over the last year, now claiming a user base in excess of 10 million who log in from a variety of internet service providers around the world.
