The new website is not just a great way to organize favorite images, it’s also fun!
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2015
Walstaful is a new virtual pinboard image sharing and collecting community and they recently unveiled their website that lets subscribers organize and share the images they discover during their hours searching the internet. The new website allows users to organize their favorite photos on pinboards that can then be used of r a variety of reasons or simply to collect images that catch their fancy. According to a Walstaful spokesperson, “The new website is not just a great way to organize favorite images, it’s also fun!”
The new website is subscriber based, but setting up an account and becoming a member is free, and takes very little time. Once someone becomes a member of the site they can immediately start creating pinboards and sharing images, as well as videos. They can also begin to follow other pinboards that interest them, share their favorite images with other members and discuss images of similar interest with others.
The pinboards can be about any topic of interest and can be a collection of images that highlight a particular members various interests, or they can be about a specific topic. Some members use the pinboards as a way to organize images for a special occasion like a wedding or for a project like home improvement.
The final pinboards appear on the Walstaful website, but subscribers have a variety of ways to get their images to the pinboards they have created. The website is fully integrated with modern social media platforms so users can upload images from smart devices like phones and tablets, from computers and even directly from the web. The upload from the web feature requires that users only copy the url directly into their pinboard.
Walstaful is not just a static site where users post images. The user is able to fully interact with other users and make choices that highlight their pinboards. When users pin images they can choose to create a collection or simply pin the image as a standalone. Collections are popular with some users because they can fill a collection with images that are similar in nature and that tell a story about what interests the user.
The Walstaful website supports three types of collections. The first is the standalone collection that is simply a group of images. Users can create a collection in any category. The second type is a group collection. These group collections are a series of similar collections that are grouped together to present a user’s interests in one, easy-to-find location. Finally, the site supports secret collections. These are collections of images that can be hidden from public view. The developers of the site report that sometimes users just want an easy way to group the images they love, but they don’t want to share those images or present them to a wider audience. Walstaful has taken care of that issue by offering their secret collections.
The site is also completely interactive. Once users create their pinboards and post their images, they can start to interact with other users if they so desire and assuming their collections are not secret. Users can follow other collections or follow other users who are interested in the same things. Users can also like what others have pinned, comment on a pin and even mention other users in a comment. The goal of the site is not only to allow users an easy way to pin and group their favorite images, according to a company spokesperson, but also to create a virtual community where users can interact, get to know each other and meet other users with similar interests.
The website is bold and attention grabbing. Once users log-in, they see random collections fill the screen. There are links along the top that allow users to sort pinboards by popularity or by tags and there is a link that takes users to the video collections. The home page also features a search button to allow users to find collections that they are most interested in.
Walstaful bills itself as a virtual pinboard and the creators have designed the site to let visitors organize and share their images and to browse and draw inspiration from the things that others find interesting. The new website is available at http://www.walstaful.com. Walstaful also has a presence on Facebook and Twitter and a Youtube Video.
