Pinterest : You're Virtual PinBoard
"Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. "
I recently discovered this gem of a site/app through a friend and I have to say it is very addicting. The idea of the site is quite simple. You basically just "pin" things you find on the web. It actually reminds me of bookmarking sites like delicio.us.
The site is quite easy to navigate and provides you with a bookmarklet to make adding pins a simple painless task. It also has a feature known as "repinning" which essentially works the same way a retweet does. The best part of this site is the ability to follow your friends and check out their boards. You are also able to collabortate on boards if you so choose to.
The iphone app is also quite nice. The UI is intuitive and well organized. You are able to pin photos that you can take in app or use from your camera roll. The interface actually reminds me of other social media apps such as oink. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes a simple interface is the best way to go.
Let me know if you any of you guys(or girls) are on pinterest. I'd love to follow some fellow vergers. If any of you would like an invite, let me know. I do need an email address to send it to.
