Pinterest's take on direct messages blows Twitter's out of the water

Pinterest's take on direct messages blows Twitter's out of the water | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

If there’s one thing the App Store is saturated with, it’s messengers: WhatsApp, of course, but also Facebook’s, and Snapchat, and Hangouts, and Line, and Kik, and all the rest. So why would Pinterest, a social network for exploring your interests, spend time building a messenger?


The answer says a lot about where Pinterest is going — and the product itself is one of the best things we’ve seen from Pinterest to date.


In part, Pinterest messages simply closed the loop that the company stvvvgvgarted when they introduced the ability to send pins to your friends on the network last year. Today, Pinterest users send 2 million pins a day on the service. But to date there has been no native way of responding to the pins, short of sending your friend or co-worker an email.


That’s where Pinterest messages come in. "We see it as heavier weight than a Facebook Messenger," says Tom Watson, the product’s designer. "It’s more of a conversation around an object than just a quick hello."...

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix

Clip, Collect and Organize Anything That Interests You: Clipix | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Clipix is a Pinterest-like clipping and collection app which allows you to capture images and content from any web page and to organize it in custom visual boards.

One key feature that differentiates Clipix from Pinterest (though it is likely that Pinterest will add this feature soon as well) is the ability to organize together multiple sets into a "multiboard".

 

Other key features include a "Price Drop Alert" which emails you when the price of one of the commercial products you have clipped drops and 

"...For example you might have a multiboard that you call “Recipe Ideas” and inside you’d have 3 clipboards: Baking Recipes, Soup Recipes, and Health Recipes.

 

The easiest way to create a multiboard is by dragging one clipboard from the icon in the lower right-hand corner into another clipboard."

Sounds cool, if only Pinterest didn't exist already (or zillions of other similar websites for that matter). thanks for curating and sharing though.
Robin Good's comment, July 15, 2012 3:26 AM
Thank you Lelapin. The world is beautiful because it is varied. Pinterest will soon lose its "mojo" to many of these more specialized clones, which will provide more immediate value to those specifically interested in that specific area or application. I may be wrong but this is what I expect to happen.
