Pinterest, the social network where users “pin” photos to virtual pin boards, has become the third most popular with Web users behind Facebook and Twitter, a report from marketing company Experian says.

Ads for consumer goods and retail are the most successful kinds on Facebook, Experian says. Those categories are a natural fit with the photos of home décor and fashion items most pinned by Pinterest users.
