I am just getting to grips with Pinterest.

But I just found two new sites similar to Pinterest, but both of which seem aimed at shoppers.

Wanelo and Fancy.

Is this the way of the future versus auction sites such as ebay and shopping comparison sites.

I would think not.

You can buy nearly everything on ebay. I recently bought 7" double-threaded brass tubing.

I knew I'd find this unusual product easily on ebay. But Wanelo or Fancy? I'm not on the market for press-on nails, cufflinks or high heels.

i think it is one way of the future, it is like an amazon wish list plus social combined.

... i have noticed that friends like buying the same thing as each other ... i've been in retail a long time and you'd be amazed at groups of girls how if one buys something all the others want it too.

And ladies too.

I sold about ten of my products to a group of ladies on an Aussie auction site, just because one of them did.

Too many guys on here are fixated on adwords and the money they make from Adsense.

There's also weheartit and loveit and a whole bunch of clones vying for a piece of the crowdsourced image content scraping and copyright infringement action.

I mean, it's easy, you just need to set up a platform, and start crowdsourcing with aggressive marketing. You get tons of visual content for free, it's much easier than actually creating it.

Been testing using Pinerly lately and the traffic seems to be 'ok' from Pinterest...I guess with anything as long as it has traffic and you build up enough of a 'sphere of influence' within that site it can work for you. Just not sure as to the quality or level of traffic these other 'up & comers' might have.

I wonder when Pinterest will start to think of ways to make some money for themselves.
