Mashup: Pinstagram

A little over a week ago, two young entrepreneurs launched the mashup site called Pinstagram. This site combines the capabilities of Instagram and Pinterest, giving Instagram the desktop platform it never had before. To use the site, all you need to do is sign in through Instagram and you will be able to view all of your photos in Pinterests’ famous “waterfall” layout. Not only can you view, like, and comment on user photos, but you can pin the ones you like to your Pinterest pinboards. Pinstagram creators saw a need for the website, believing that many people “are still browsing the web on desktops.”

Do you think this is true or will the mobile trend wipe out a need for Pinstagram?

How does it compare with the previously founded Pingram?
