Instagram + Pinterest = Pinstagram


Here is something very interesting that I came across last night. When two friends decided to mash Piterest and Instagram (which was recently acquired by Facebook in a hard-to-believe $1 billion deal) into a hybrid, it just started as a joke. A weekend later Pinstagram was born.

The two friends- Pek Pongpaet and Brandon Leonardo were discussing how entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to VCs- say our website is X for Y for example our website is ‘Facebook for part time bloggers’. They stumbled upon the idea to create ‘Pinterest for Instagram’.

A couple of days of coding led the idea convert into Pinstagram- Pinterest for Instagram which shows your Instagram photographs in the Pinterest layout. It seems people like the new layout of Pinstagram.

Why do people like it? The biggest reason for people liking the new layout is that it suites the web page spread. Pinstagram fills an important void because Instagram never focused on the desktop experience. That is the precise USP which the site markets itself- The best way to view Instagram on web.

I searched on Google, there are many other platforms available which can be used to display the Instagram pics on web but Pinstagram seems the best of the lot.

I am not sure if they are infringing on some copyrights of Pinterest or Instagram, but the ‘cocktail of the best’ two start ups in recent years has definitely created something very interesting.
