Pinstagram was created by Pek Pongpaet and Brandon Leonardo as a weekend project. What started out as a joke when they were discussing ideas and mentioned how funny a mashup of Instagram and Pinterest would be. So what happens when you combine two of the hottest tech startups together? Well you get Pinstagram!
Pinstagram is a free service that lets you enjoy Instagram on the web. It works in conjunction with your Instagram account and lets you view your feed, popular photos, and more. Personally I am not the biggest fan of Pinterest and I dabble with Instagram a little – but now with the two of them combined together, I am loving it! And I have noticed that over the last 20 hours my engagement in Instagram has increased.
There is just something satisfying about seeing all your photos pinned to the board complete with the commentary and the search function is fantastic, for instance if you search the word “Puppy” you instantly get a massive pin board with all the pics on Instagram with people that have tagged this word in their pictures …nawww.
I think these fellas are onto something, can’t wait to see it grow as more users adopt the service!
