Why Is Pinterest So Addictive? [INFOGRAPHIC]

I saw an article the other day that described Pinterest as “a woman’s social network” with 60% of the site’s visitors being of the female persuasion. Why is that? Why do men find it unattractive to share photos on Pinterest while women go completely nuts over the site?

How To Tell If Someone Is a Good Web Developer For Your Project

Picking someone to build a website for you is not an easy task. Even if you are not building the next Gmail, you should be doing things right the first time.
