How to make Facebook look like Pinterest

If you love Pinterest — really love Pinterest — to the point of wishing that every website looked exactly like it, then I've got some great news for you: There's an app which'll make Facebook feel like Pinterest in just a few clicks.

The app's called PinView — get it? — and you just have to grant it access to your Facebook News Feed. Once you do that, you'll be able to look at your News Feed, Timeline, friends list, and other Facebook content as if it were a pile of Pinterest pins. Simple enough, right? 

There's not much to the app beyond that, just some buttons that allow you to toggle between which content you're viewing.

In case it's not obvious: PinView won't alter how your friends see your Facebook Timeline or other content, nor will it alter how your regular News Feed looks. The only place where things will resemble Pinterest is the PinView app page.
