CNET: Pinterest’s IPO shows the internet isn’t always as awful as you thought

CNET: Pinterest’s IPO shows the internet isn’t always as awful as you thought. “Pinterest has been around for nine years, having launched right around the same time as the first iPad, and back when Facebook was pulling in merely half a billion monthly users (it tops 2.3 billion today). But the social network that Sharp co-founded with CEO Ben Silbermann and Paul Sciarra, now a venture capitalist, is different from peers like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. It’s not known as a place to get the news. It doesn’t have a robust way to message your friends. And it’s not trying to dream up whiz-bang new services and tech like livestreaming or virtual reality.”
