Pinterest – The Fastest Website to Reach 10 Million UsersLast Updated: March 23, 2012
In March 2010, the pinboard-styled social photo-sharing website Pinterest was launched by Ben Silbermann. Nine months later the site had a commendable 10,000 users, but it was in 2011 that Pinterest really began to take off. By January 2012, the site reached 10 million users, the fastest website in history to do so, as well as receiving 11 million unique users a week to the site as well. The website is particularly popular amongst women, with 97% of users responsible for the number of “likes” registered.
