I've used it a few times and it's not bad! But in the "collect the links I love" segment, Pocket is a pretty big competitor. How are you planning to set you appart from them?

as @baptistegreve said I am also very curious to see how you will remain competitive and innovative against Pocket. I have been a Pocket user for a long time now but was never compelled to purchase their Premium services. I simply felt their Premium version was only marginally beneficial and even gave them a list of features which I believed would make Pocket more functional, but I have yet to see any moves on their part. Regardless they are the big competitor in this function and I am hesitant to switch to Newsly as I don't see anything new.

@baptistegreve Hello Baptiste, thank your for your feedback. The main difference is that Pocket (for now) does not have the social vision :)

@arintoker Thanks for the opportunity to be more specific about our difference with Pocket. Once you are on board, you discover the "discovery" part of Newsly, where users can share and follow each others (which doesn't exist on pocket). The idea we would like to develop in the future - and I'd love to hear what you think about that - is to allow users to save privately as many links they want, but, only share to their followers one content per day. So people recommend only very qualitative content. We'll be glad to see you in our community Arin !

Always wanted to created something like this myself. Glad to see someone else did.

@benjaminnetter Hi Benjamin, thank your for your comment. Pinterest is very focused on girly content (cupcakes, quotes... ) we are more focused on news content :)

@benjaminnetter @dawise_ Hate to say but the "girly content" is a pretty bad thing to say on a tech site that has lots of female founders and users not focused on "girly things". Unless you're implying that women are better suited for that than the more complicated "technical" things you're interested in.

@sacbookreviewer Hi Ross, let me be direct : I don't think women aren't suited for anything specific- specially tech- and the way you are trying to make me say that, is not very intellectually honest. My wording was bad, I give you that. What I was trying to say is that Pinterest is mostly used by women : 80%. And the most shared pins are about : "Food and drinks". ( btw : I love both cupcakes and quotes.

@dawise_ What you said was worded very poorly and I was pointing that out. You were potentially insulting a large portion of the female audience here, and one I know @rrhoover and @eriktorenberg did a lot of outreach to bring to the site. I know I helped with that some. Flagging anything as "girly" or "for boys" or gender limiting discourages women from going into tech fields, staying in tech fields or starting tech related businesses. And while it wasn't what you were trying to say, it was how it came across to me and to my wife who is my business partner (in a tech business). Good luck w the site.

Is this sort of a pinboard + pocket replacement all in one?

@chadhs I was thinking Pocket meets Pinterest / Delicious.
