Pinterest Alternatives for Men

DartItUp

Here’s a Pinterest alternative so dude-friendly that to gain access you must take a Bro Compatibility Test. Don’t worry, this one-question quiz is a layup. Once it’s done, you’ll be darting—or pinning—images of motorcycles, Sports Illustrated pinups, ‘80s video game characters, manly Internet memes and anything else worthy of the least fair sex’s attention to a virtual dartboard, the equivalent of Pinterest’s pinboard.

Interface/Design: While DartItUp’s clean-looking slate-gray and cobalt-blue interface sets a strong tone, the controls still need work. For instance, DartItUp doesn’t support making new dartboards as you post a new image. That lack of convenience forces eager darters to manually make a dartboard, then go back to the homepage and post a new image. It slows down using the service.

Community: Want to post some darts with your friends? Not here, buddy. Unlike Pinterest, DartItUp doesn’t connect to external social networks such as Facebook or Twitter, nor does it hunt down any of your Gmail contacts who are currently darting. Considering there aren’t many users to begin with, it’s hard to find buddies. Plus, DartItUp is something of a ghost town. Dartboards are tiled with posts from the same names over and over. We know this is a man’s pinboard, but it feels like a sausage fest without enough sausage.

Addictiveness: You won’t find a pack of your friends on DartItUp, but you will find some hilarious, awesome posts. The male-minded goofery includes images of million-dollar locker rooms, soccer players taking kicks to the groin, food shots of bacon and epic BBQ spreads and way, way more.

We spent time browsing the Challenges and Debates sections, too. There, users can compete by throwing up darts to best match specified themes like “The Top 10 Bad-Ass Actors” or “Life or Death,” a visual gallery of the things man cannot live without (y’know, cheeseburgers, Captain America, college football, etc.). Unlike pee-wee league where everyone’s a winner, only the darts with the most likes, comments and re-darts gets the prize. The only downside: Users can’t create their own topics, so everyone posts to the same preset categories, which gets old fast.

    What is the deal with men not using Pinterest because there are a lot of women. They adopted and populated first but if you don’t care about weddings or cute pictures, don’t follow people who pin them. I don’t like weddings or republican politics. I don’t want to see it, so I follow like-minded people. I also never look at “popular” or “everything” because like life – it’s usually crap. Guys started Pinterest. Why wouldn’t guys use it? There plenty of cars and nude girls aswell as techy stuff. I search for art or artists I like, photographs or portraits I know of, places I’ve been or want to visit. When I find those pins, I look at who originally pinned it and see if they interest me. Also, when pins pop on my following page I don’t like, I unfollow that board. The point is you see what you choose. The problem with Pinterest is app is only partially formed – it crashes, is missing some basic functionality. I want something that works with private boards.

    Maybe it’s the pink curly logo? – anyway, I never minded hanging out where there’s a lot of women ‡¡‡ If I want to check in on the guys, there’s the local sports bar
