There are some Pinterest users that use it purely for it's entertainment value while the are others that utilize it's popularity by advertising products or events on the social network. PinAuthority is a social media analytical application that lets you track and analyze your Pinterest statistics as well as having an in depth look at the top 1000 users on a daily basis.

I'm still rather amazed that Pinterest has got as big as it has when there are just as interesting social photosharing apps on the market that haven't captured as much attention. However, that's beside the point.
