Pinterest 4 alternatives
Again, I do not know why Pinterest is the new Internet coqueluche, but there are other sites that do pretty much the same on the Internet (of course it is on hte Internet!). Sometimes I wonder why a site becomes popular! I don’t see any particular reason, but that the way it is. My theory is that it is the equivalent of the butterfly effect. Pinterest was the butterfly that flapped its wing at a particular moment, at a particular place, with a particular force to make the success happen. (the right product, at the right moment,at the right place promoted by the right person) . Anyway I like pinterest because it is fast, handy and neat.
Anyway you should also test the 4 following Internet photo tagging tools. Sometimes it’s not too good to collect all your picture at the same place. You might also like adult picture that have to be shared on special anonymous places.
The aim is to pin (tag, categorize…) a picture in a few clicks from a bookmarklet, a fire-fox add-on or a Chrome Extension. Then you can have people following you on each of these tools. As I am not a famous person, I don’t understand why peole should follow me, but nowadays, follwing somebody on a social network is senseless.
This site really works the same way as pinterest, since it allows to tag a photofrom a bookmarklet. I would say it is slightly easier to create a photo collection on pinterest.
You need a firefox add-on or extension for Chrome extension to run the site. But once you press on the heart icone, it works just the same.
Il liked it at first, but it is not possible to tag the piture. The fact that pinterest offers to pin the picture with tags and then put the pictures on a collection is may be why this site has become so popular.
Press the bookmarklet, chose on picture among all the pictures found on the page, tag the picture and add a tittle to it.
I’m like a true sheep of Panurge, I think I’ll still stick to pinterest. Folloing the flock as usual!
