Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Joins Pinterest

A good leader keeps tabs on the competition, which was likely the goal of Facebook Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg when he established a profile on surging social network Pinterest.

To date, there has not been much activity on Zuckerberg’s Pinterest profile: three pins, one like, 1,176 followers, and he is following 125 Pinterest users.

The move by Zuckerberg is not much of a surprise, as he also has accounts on Twitter and Google Plus, with similar levels of inactivity.

Zuckerberg has only Tweeted 19 times, and his tweet January 18 — which linked to a Facebook post where he outlined his opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect Intellectual Property Act — was his first since March 13, 2009.

His Google Plus page is even more fallow, with no public posts.

Readers: Do you follow Zuckerberg on Twitter or Google Plus, and will you do so on Pinterest?
