Is Pinterest the New Facebook?

What is your opinion? Is Pinterest the New Facebook?

Pinterest, a new photo-based
social media platform, is rocketing to the upper echelons of Internet visitation at an astounding rate, but The New York Post might have oversold the site when it dubbed it "the new Facebook." Sure, it's become the fifth-largest social media network and 16th most-visited site in the U.S. in just two years, but its 11.7 million users (as of January) are still dwarfed in comparison to Facebook's 845 million users (as of December). So why the high praise?

Gizmodo's Sam Biddle compares it to a dreamland, a form of escapism that appeals to our most visual appetites. He writes, "It's a group fantasy where everyone is feeding each other very pretty things. People are posting shoes they can’t afford to buy, recipes they can’t cook. It does feel very old-fashioned. You can definitely get a feel that it’s not advancing any feminist ideals as far as gender norms go. It’s basically clothes and cooking." Well, it's working. But do you think Pinterest can become the new Facebook?
