KUSA - New Pew Research data shows the social-networking site Pinterest has caught up with Twitter in popularity. 

A Centennial mom harnessed the power of Pinterest and, in less than a year, amassed a following of more than one million people.

Melissa Taylor wrote a book about her success and is starting a consulting business to help others have similar results. Taylor says Pinterest is a powerful tool for small businesses and brands.

"You can have a product, or a book or anything you want to promote," she said. "And with very little marketing money, you can still be successful if you invest your time on social media and grow your platform."

Taylor's book "Pinterest Savvy" is only available for the Kindle or Kindle apps through Amazon. On its launch day, less than two weeks ago, the book cracked Amazon's Top 20 most downloaded books list.
