Business Insider’s Cooper Smith provides some interesting statistics about Pinterest pins. These statistics (directly quoted) are from a new study by Piqora:

  • A pin on Pinterest generates $0.78 in sales, on average on e-commerce sites, which is 25% more than what it drove in the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • A pin is repinned (a form of sharing) 10 times on average.
  • For comparison, the average tweet on Twitter is only retweeted slightly more than 1% of the time.
