    Balloonduck: Where Pinterest Meets Twitter To Sate Your Curiosity

    We first wrote about Balloonduck back in March. At the time, the social network was accepting invite requests prior to a full launch, so as to avoid empty room syndrome. But today is the big day: Balloonduck has hit 1,500 invite requests and is now officially live. If you perchance haven’t heard about the service, it’s basically a Pinterest-style Twitter, but with questions being… Read More

    Yahoo-owned Flickr is one of the largest content sources for Pinterest, with users posting Flickr images on the pinboard sharing site in droves. But in order to Pin a Flickr photo on Pinterest, you had to use Pinterest’s own Pin button, and you couldn’t Pin photos to pinboards directly from Flickr. Until today.

    As Pinterest’s Hype Peaks, Growth May Be Slowing

    Pinterest has been on a hot streak this year. Or should we say hype streak?

    Pinterest Has An Invitation To The Billion Dollar Startup Club, But Will It Accept?

    You know who the busiest man in the startup world is right now? Pinterest’s newly-minted CEO Ben Silbermann, who from what we’re hearing is so preoccupied with shipping product that he hasn’t been taking any investors’ calls. And there are a lot of freakin’ calls (Fact: Silbermann’s voice mailbox is full). EVERYONE wants Pinterest to raise a C-round, and… Read More
