If you start searching things, a large database is waiting to be explored. But this site has somehow been able to attract only teenagers and college going crowd. Basically, you can call it the Snapchat of Pinterest as a majority of the users are youngsters.
If you are foody, this FoodGawker is not something you should miss on. Another example of Pinterest inspired website and a superb place to find out some cool places for new cuisines and recipes. Such a delight for those who are fond of cooking and eating.

Manteresting is like a Pinterest version for men. Although there are many maps who are comfortable using Pinterest but Manteresting has purposely tried to emphasize on the demands and interest of men. Genres like Sports, video games, automobiles or technology can be easily found on Manteresting, which are the key topics for men. Also, here you do not ‘Pin’ images on ‘Boards’ rather ‘nail’ them on ‘workbenches’, stereotypically macho as they call it.
Apart from these popular look-alike sites of Pinterest Gentlemint, Dudepins and Liqurious are few others which also primarily focus on the interest of men. As the name suggests Gentlemint and Dudepins. Whereas, Liqurious is another extension for lovers, especially those who like drinks and like to drink as well. An interesting title for ‘Liqurious’ would be ‘Pinterest version for alcohol’.
