Gurgaon-based Fizzy Softwares has launched Pintile.com as an online bulletin board exclusively for India, inspired by Pinterest.com. According to the company, Pintile aims to depict India in the form of images where people “PIN” their cultures, styles, ideas and much more.
Pinterest is a pinboard-styled social photo sharing website. The service allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections. The site’s mission statement is to “connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting.” Pinterest is managed by Cold Brew Labs, a team based in Palo Alto, California.
Pintile offers people a way to connect with others to share their experiences by pinning them onto their boards that can be personalized for each person. People can also like pins, and even re-pin them on their bulletin board. While the website has a few guidelines, people are free to pin whatever they like.
Fizzy Software is a web and mobile product development company and was founded in 2007 by Sudhanshu Aggarwal and Ashish Sharma. Fizzy has built Facebook applications and iPhone games under the Fizzy Apps brand.
Business Model ?
Like Pinterest, Pintile doesn’t have a clear business model. So it needs to be seen till when the founders are able to hold on to it.
