There’s a Pinterest for that: A list of niche Pinterest clones

As soon as one startup hits it big, a crop of clones rush to cash in on the excitement. The latest company de jour to mimic is Pinterest, the popular visual-bookmarking site. And, as with Groupon and Airbnb before it, we’ve seen tons of “A Pinterest for ____” PR pitches.

For your entertainment, we compiled this list of our favorite Pinterest knock-offs. There’s a cluster of travel-focused sites, including Trippy, Wanderfly, and Gtrot. Trying to fill the dude-void are Mantersting, Gentlemint, and a Pinterest for Porn, Snatchly.

If you want to make your own Pinterest homage (there is no Pinterest for cats yet, a gross oversight*), you can find the code online, pay $199 for PinBoarding Pro from PinterestClones, or try out a custom WordPress theme.

The full list is below. Naturally, we also created a Pinboard of Pinterest clones.

(*Update: PinCat has been added to the list.)
