MySpace accused of ripping the stealth startup Pinterest

This morning co-founders Pinterest Ben Silberman, Paul Sciarra and Yashwanth Nelapati split many to a barrage of tweets, "so @ myspace completely tore @ pinterest." It pisses me really off when an old, tired hack tries to undermine inovators for hard work. [sic] "MySpace has revealed its new redesign last night and Pinterest users picked up quickly to on the similarities between the aesthetics of both site, leading to an intense debate from Twitter."

The layout grid off site used by MySpace and Pinterest is nothing new;Lazyfeed, and countless other sites have a similar design (there is even a theme of Tumblr) .but the fact that the former Director of technology MySpace Dave Peck email Pinterest in March by requesting a prompt advance is interesting, especially when you read the email.

Founder Silberman says TechCrunch, "MySpace product team joins our site really at the beginning and I'm sure they have inspired it."Our impression was that they took some information and we have been affected that our users have been vocal about it. »

However, Silberman who retweeted charges on behalf of official Pinterest this morning, said, "I would not go as far as saying that they snatching.""They are probably listening to organize friends of interest after they missed the boat friends," referring to the way in which you can now use MySpace to track the pages of topics.

Pinterest is still invite only and is currently looking for financement.Bien in stealth mode startup social cataloguing has 17,000 users and prepares to meet its millionth "pine".Silberman plans to launch in a few months, encouraged by all the user supports today, "it is cool when you're a small business and your users stick place for you."

MySpace has 90 million users in September according to comScore, marking a decline of 18% since the year dernière.Cette recent design and concept review was an attempt to gain some traffic lost to competitors like Facebook.
