    We’ve also created a collaborative private pinterest type site called You can upload any image from the web, invite users to the collection and markup and annotate directly on the images.

    This is insanely helpful ! My mom and I have a small jewelry-making business and we needed a way to share links of jewelry ideas, inspirations, raw materials, etc. I wanted to use pinterest, but no private boards are possible. I created a private group on facebook, but you can’t organize the links. I finally chose Springpad. Really convenient! Thank you soooo much.
