I’m just not sure how you win at Pinterest” was posted on Twitter on September 24, 2011. “Pinterest is the female fantasy football” was posted on Twitter on October 18, 2011.

“Pinterest is to girls as fantasy football is to guys” was posted on Twitter on October 18, 2011. “"Pinterest is like Fantasy Football for women” was posted on Twitter on October 25, 2011, and “Pinterest is like fantasy football for girls” was posted on Twitter on November 13, 2011.

The saying about Pinterest has been printed on several images. “Pinterest is Instagram for moms” is another saying about Pinterest.


Wikipedia: Pinterest
Pinterest is a web and mobile application startup that operates a software system designed to discover information on the World Wide Web, mainly utilizing images and on a shorter scale, GIFs and videos. The site was founded by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra and Evan Sharp.

Pinterest CEO Ben Silbermann summarized the company as a “catalog of ideas” that inspires users to “go out and do that thing”, rather than as an image-based social network.

How Pinterest Became Like Fantasy Football For Women
May 27, 2013
Mike Bako, Marketing Manager for D S Simon Productions, spoke with Erica Campbell, Director Of Social Media for Homes.com, after her recent presentation on How to Engage Your Audience with Pinterest at the at PR News’ The Big 3 Conference.
Erica’s PRketing(R) Views:
“Pinterest is a huge traffic driver. The average time on the website is about 98 minutes. 1 in 5 users that are online are using Pinterest.  I think the site skews women but men are absolutely using it.”

“For our brand in particular, women are making the household decisions when it comes to purchasing so it lends well to our specific brand. The time spend in there is very similar to the amount of time spent on fantasy football.”
