Pinstagram combines Instagram & Pinterest

What would happen if two of the digital world’s hottest startups, Pinterest and Instagram, were mashed into one?

The Rise of Facebook Places

The web is on overload due to Facebook’s new service, Places. The now certain death to existing services like Foursquare and Gowalla now have a large monkey on their back.
