This is a company no one would miss if it disappeared.
@RGB - I couldn't disagree more

I think this is a company that created a whole new social media paradigm, that is non-threatening. Some interesting info here: No. of Recommendations: 6

Hubspot, which is another really great company that I use but haven't invested in, has some info about it here:

So my startup (which caters to teachers) has had better results interacting with Pinterest than with Facebook. We haven't advertised on Pinterest though - obviously we should and will start.

From the point of view of the company and the platform, I think it is great, and really disagree with RGB.

From the point of view of investing, I'm not ready... yet. It seems expensive, the growth doesn't thrill me. I do think the moat is underappreciated, however. People put their work into creating pins. They are not going to leave, and they are going to tell their friends.
