We Heart It

While Pinterest is not really aimed at teenagers, We Heart It certainly is! From the moment you visit the homepage, you will notice that it’s indeed aimed at young and college-going ladies. Unlike Pinterest, We heart It is a more basic experience where you can discover & follow people, “love” pictures shared by others. While it lacks the pinning & boards features from Pinterest, it makes it up with a easy to use layout and a great community of mostly young women.

3. PearlTrees

PearlTrees is very similar to Pinterest but instead of the board & pin concept, it uses a pearls & trees concept. It lets you explore and share different types of content. Once you start sharing content on the platform, you will come across similar “trees”. There are also various different trees you can follow and add your valuable pearls to it. One qualm we have with PearlTrees is its archaic user interface, which is functional but looks dated. Other than that, PearlTrees is a more streamlined alternative to Pinterest.


While PearlTrees is available to use for free, you can also get a premium plan starting at $2.99/month, which bring features like offline mode, more storage, customization features and no ads.
