    Don't waste your time at pinspire.com. My pins never go on the main category pages and the same pics from the same sites stay on the category pages for weeks. Check the women's fashion page out. "pinned 21 days ago" Many of the pics date back that far. If you click on the website links in the pins they take you directly to Amazon. The pinners, all from the same site, have different names though. LOL I find that hilarious.

    Wow, that's surprising. They seem very eager to onboard users (for example, waiving invite requirements). You'd think they'd bend over backwards to make users have fun/feel validated.

    I was surprised too for the same reasons that you stated. It's a shame that they did this because they got a lot of visibility from high profile websites that announced that they were another site like Pinterest. They could have made it a great site. People aren't going to frequent the site once they realize what's going on. I'm sure that many have realized it already because the pins I looked at on the main page for women's fashion got under 40 views in over 20 days.

    I have also observed such peculiar activity of pinspire.com. I have got surpised to observe that my pins are not gone to main pages, in spite I have posted them before few weeks.
