LONDON, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Global fashion accessories marketplace presents findings of a Pinterest vs. Facebook case study in an infographic
Boticca.com, one of the first ecommerce players to integrate Pinterest across its website, releases a case study with the findings of a Pinterest vs. Facebook in infographic format. The study, based on a sample of 50,000 visits to the Boticca.com website from Pinterest and a sample of 50,000 visits from Facebook during a 30-day period in March and April, covers users' purchasing and engagement behaviors on the website across both popular social medium channels.
In the past month, Pinterest has emerged as the brand's number one social outlet in terms of sales.

The site now has 40,000 followers across its 62 branded Pinterest boards.
