Had Enough Pinning? Try Tapping
So, what’s so different about Tapiture? First, it’s a visually gorgeous site with content that’s easy on the eye--and inspiring. On any given hour of the day, there are photos of beautiful architecture, inspirational quotes, killer nature and travel photography--even adorable pets. The content of the site is eclectic - humor, serious stuff, classic, retro, fashion for both men and women, and cool items for sale in the Tapiture shop.
Users can bookmark the Tapiture button or add it as a Chrome extension and Tap anything on the web to add to their curated collections. The company recently released an iOS app so users can Tap from their iPhone or iPads when they’re out and about.
Maybe it’s the logo that’s so appealing. A man’s Top Hat seems like an elegant reminder of a bygone era. It could also be the fact that Tapiture has a lot of male users and as a man, I find that kind of cool. There are women on the platform as well (several are friends) but what I see on Tapiture is a open platform where all are welcomed. If someone’s taps aren’t to your liking, you just don’t follow them. You can also just follow users’ categories like art or fashion - and skip the content you may not like.
I’ve tried Pinterest, but personally, I find it exhausting. It feels like everyone is competing to be (or show) the best. And I guess a lot of women are stressed out by Pinterest as well. According to TODAY Moms, a recent survey of 7,000 women showed that 42% suffer from “Pinterest stress.” Pinterest doesn’t have a lot to offer me in terms of content either. I don’t bake cupcakes and I’m not planning a wedding!Continued on the next page
