Self-Hosted Pinterest Alternatives

Pinterest's layout ensures that you may be stuck anywhere from minutes to hours perusing images of art and creativity related to whatever content you originally searched for. Just make sure to clear your schedule before losing yourself in photos and art!

As Pinterest is a closed source commercial service, data collection and monetization is the name of the game. Open source alternatives to Pinterest are free of this caveat, and are especially worth considering if you are privacy minded but still enjoy the concept of Pinterest. For even more security, self-hosted alternatives allow you the most control over how you want content presented as well as what content you want to be available.
