New website "Pinterest" gaining a lot of attention
TYLER - A new website is gaining a lot of attention, and turning a lot of heads. It's called "Pinterest".
Users tell KETK, the new social networking site allows users to share photos of things they enjoy and "pin" them on their wall.
Reports say the site which started in 2010 jumped from 1.6-million users in September to 7-million just three months later in December.
One user says it's no surprise a site like this is growing in popularity.
Sarah Chapin, an East Texas Photographer and Tyler Junior College student tells KETK, "This generation is a digital media generation and I don't think it's going to replace facebook because I think facebook has a different purpose but I definitely think it will kill a lot of photo sites."
