With 114 million monthly visitors, Reddit is a digital platform that few in the marketing world can ignore. There is a little something for everyone at Reddit, and if you have content to market (good content), you will find it to be a very helpful social channel. When content is posted correctly, Reddit can be a pretty solid source of web traffic.

Since Reddit doesn’t fall into the typical social (Facebook) mold of news feed, friends, statuses, etc, it can be challenging for newcomers to wrap their arms around at first. If you are finding yourself scratching your head a bit about Reddit, you are in luck

Today, it’s hard to meet someone who hasn’t, at the very least, heard of Vine.

Today, I updated a post that I haven’t done much with in a little while. Pinterest isn’t a publicly-traded company so they aren’t required to share any data quarterly like some of their social network peers. For a while, Pinterest stats were popping up so quickly that it was tough to keep up with them. Things have quieted down considerably up until recently.

Below are a few of the new and updated Pinterest stats that I posted today. Please visit the full posts, listed below, for many, many more stats.
