Exclusive invites to a new social bookmarking site inspired by the bulletin board
Those looking for a more dynamic way to track their web finds (and those of others) will like Pinterest, a new invite-only site that co-founder Ben Silbermann calls "a personal version of Cool Hunting." With a format combining the simplicity of sites like Tumblr and the visual stimulation of those like Ffffound, the service one-ups others by "making it easy to follow people, making collections beautiful, and always attributing images to the original source," explains Silbermann.
In keeping with a bulletin board concept, users can create "Pinboards" devoted to specific interests—as a new user, a page with preloaded categories like Books Worth Reading, For the Home or Style helps start things off. You can invite collaborators to contribute to a particular board, and subscribe to others' feeds to create a visual catalog of interests.
