Pinterest doesn't want to be a social network anymore
Pinterest is certainly a one of a kind social media platform. Apparently, they also realized that and began starting to evolve into something else, away from the classic concept of a social media network.
This is why they removed the "like" button recently and also because there wasn't really a clear difference between the save button and the like button, everything is way more clear now, especially for the users.
In my opinion, Facebook wants to put as much as space possible between them and Facebook. Every social network that came into contact with facebook and their market share got into trouble at one point of the other. It seems to me that Pinterest doesn't want to give Facebook any ideas or reasons to pick on them and copy their ideas like they did with other social networks in the past. They want to be a "discovery platform" not a social network in which people connect.
I believe Pinterest have huge potential in terms of selling power, they could totally evolve into an ecommerce funnel platform.
What do you think? Is Pinterest afraid of Facebook?
