Latest Pinterest Copycat Boxnutt Targets Reddit Demographic

There’s a Pinterest for videos only.  Another for brides.  A Chinese version.  Another is trying to become an online mall.  There’s one for note taking.  One that has almost no discernible differences.  One for porn (clearly way NSFW).  A Pinterest/Instagram mashup.  I could go on…

Now there’s Boxnutt, the Pintereset for the Reddit demographic (read: 25–34 year old guys).

“Boxnutt was created to fill a void in my own online experience. I’ve been an avid user of social news sites, first Digg and then more recently Reddit, and always felt from a design standpoint things could be improved greatly,” says Brandon Kruzeniski, Boxnutt’s creator.

The look and functionality is the same – staggered visual layout, comment and/or share – but instead of cupcakes and sundresses, Boxnutt features rude turtles and creative ways to cheat on a test.

Redditors, check out Boxnutt, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
