Is Pinterest engaging, let me rephrase that. How engaging is Pinterest? Facebook is the still the most engaging site on the planet at 405 minutes per month, followed by Pinterest and Tumblr are equal in second place at 89 minutes. Funny, for I always thought that Twitter was second but it comes in third at 21 minutes. Next is LinkedIn with 17 minutes, and surprise surprise Google Plus – 3 minutes but growing still at a fast rate. Also Instargram is missing. Wich had a rapid growth over the last few years, same as Vine.
