Clearly, Pinterest is growing, and I wonder if it's getting the attention it deserves from all.

What seemed like a niche site could be turning into an ecommerce operation with great potential.
Pinterest announced that it has hired Li Fan as its new head of engineering, where it’s likely that she’ll utilize her experience in image search, infrastructure, and data analysis to improve ranking and discoverability of pins across the service. Prior to joining the company, Fan was the head of image search at Google and the vice president of search at China’s largest search engine Baidu.
