When it comes to social media, I’m more a Twitter and Facebook kind of guy. But more and more, I’m using Pinterest to share amazing travel photos and find travel inspiration (you can check out my boards here). Not surprisingly, Pinterest is fast becoming one of the most popular social networks. According to my research, Pinterest has about 70 million users and 30 billion+ pins. Thirty BILLION. Is that incredible or what? The more time I spend on Pinterest, the more I’m discovering amazing people and brands to follow. Here are 10 of my favorites that you should follow, too!
