Pinpuff Launches as a Klout for Pinterest Pinterest, a Tumblr like social network in which images are “pinned” onto categorically organized boards, is all the rage these days. The social media world’s darling has seen massive growth, and is fast becoming an interesting marketing and business tool. Just like Klout measures your social influence on platforms like Facebook and Twitter, a new web app has launched to measure your social influence on Pinterest: It’s called Pinpuff, and if it works, it could have a meaningful impact for brands and power users. Pinpuff calculates your “Pinfluence”, a measure of your popularity, influence and reach on Pinterest and it decides the monetary value of your pins and traffic your pins generate, a.k.a. your “Pin Worth”. Pinpuff founder Ammrita Sharma is just 20 years old and he’s a self-declared Pinterest addict. “I love Pinterest more than anything on Internet,” says Sharma.

His new site, PinAQuote.com, offers users a way to grab text they see somewhere on the Web and turn it into a sharable image for Pinterest. Drag the PinAQuote bookmarklet into your bookmarks bar, which works well in Firefox or Chrome. Now You Can Pin Quotes to Pinterest
