The abundance of growth of social curation cum photo sharing site, Pinterest, has invited a whole new crop of copy-cats that mimics almost everything. Usually, marketers or gurus tries to leverage the advantage of current trending topic, and so is the case with Pinterest. Earlier last week, we provided a useful list of Pinterest like sites that looks quite identical to Pinterest but not all of them were copy-cats. Now, we are going one step further to provide a list of Pinterest clones that imitates almost everything.
Couple of years back, users witnessed clones of twitter, Groupon, Facebook and many other popular ventures, and as you would have thought Chinese clones like Sina Weibo, Renren and few other instantly become famous instantly since they were offered in the local language. The success of Pinterest has not only attracted travelers, video, photographers but also porn networks.
Some of the clones like Pinspire not only incorporated Pinterest design and color combination but also included Facebook timeline feature which is not present in original creator website. It goes a yard or two ahead by providing such service. On the other hand, some websites are trying to allure SEOs by providing dofollow link to the users.
