“To me, boards are a very human way of seeing the world. The site is about helping people to discover things they didn’t know they wanted — things that feel like they’ve been handpicked just for you.” –Founder of Pinterest, Ben Silbermann
According to this article on CNN.com, the virtual pegboard site Pinterest.com is currently the third most-visited online social network site, putting it just behind social media behemoths Facebook and Twitter. Pinterest allows users to establish their identities and interests through the use of “pins” – visual links and various images on categorized boards. Users can follow their friends, strangers, or even President Barack Obama, who recently became a member.
Perhaps most remarkable about Pinterest’s rise to success is the time in which it took the site to reach a level comparable to that of Facebook and Twitter. Founded in March 2010, Pinterest reached 17.8 million unique visitors by February 2012. Founder Ben Silbermann seemed taken aback by the site’s fast-growing phenomenon, stating at a Q&A during the 2012 South by Southwest Interactive conference, “It’s a really humbling feeling that all these people are using something that you helped make.”

Denver, Colo. — April 4, 2012 — Religion and spirituality have long played a major role in American politics, lifestyles, and social mores. Some would say this has never been truer than it is today, despite a marked decline in church attendance, especially among Gen Xers and millenials. 5280, Denver’s top magazine, wanted to explore this apparent contradiction and delve a little deeper into the spiritual debate in their April 2012 issue, so they reached out to Resolution Research and our in-house panel, Resolution Panel, for help. Resolution surveyed just over 400 people in the Denver-Boulder-Colorado Springs areas about the kinds of roles religious practices and spirituality play in their lives. The results were analyzed and neatly packaged by 5280’s team of editors and experts and published in their current issue “Believe”. You can check out the results here. If you’re local, be sure to pick up a copy, available on newsstands now.
5280 is the premier guide to the arts, entertainment, dining, news, and newsmakers in the Mile-High City. For nearly 20 years, the magazine has provided a forum for stories that celebrate life in the West, specifically in the Denver/Colorado region. A combination of sophisticated design, distinctive voice, and commitment to in-depth, high-quality journalism has made the magazine required reading in one of America’s most vibrant and fastest-growing cities. With a total distribution of 85,000, 5280 is the most widely circulated local magazine in Colorado, and is consistently among the top-selling magazines at metro newsstands.
