FamilyFinds Takes Page From Pinterest, Launches myFINDS

Santa Monica-based FamilyFinds, the daily deal service backed by Matt Coffin, the founder of, looks to have taken inspiration from the popularity of Pinterest, with its own sharing and commenting service. FamilyFinds told its users Thursday that it has launched myFINDS!, a new service which will help users "track of and share great ideas you find online". The service allows users to make lists of items and things you find on any website, sharing those and allowing for comments and reposting--very similar to Pinterest's comments and repins. FamilyFinds said the new service is ideal for planning family vacations, sharing outdoor activities, or creating collection of recipes.
