Though the difference are few and far between, I did manage to find a couple:
- Pinterest is still an INVITE-ONLY site, where Pinspire is not. Anyone can sign-up! And currently there is a waiting list to join the Pinterest community. Will they lose potential pinsters to Pinspire because of this?
- On Pinterest we have BOARDS, on Pinspire these are called COLLECTIONS
- If you're used to Pinterest you may find some of the links in different places. For example, I went on Pinspire's detailed page of a pin... went to click the source and accidentally REPORTED it. Whoops! I was used to the source being in the top-right corner from Pinterest. Definitely click with caution on this new site.
- Pinspire is catered to international users. The creators of Pinspire look for the hottest U.S. sites that have yet to go global. From what I've read, they develop a copycat to get a large international following in hopes to sell to the original creators. It has worked for them in the past! How do you feel about this?
