Pinterest opens to all

When Pinterest was launched two years ago, only invited users had access to it in order to control the number of new users and to avoid servers from being overwhelmed. It was easy to request an invite, however, as it usually takes only one or two days to be accepted.

Yesterday, the company finally opened registration to the website to everyone. There is no more need to request for invites.

Pinterest is an online service that allows users to organize their images on the Internet and to share these with their friends. The website is reportedly already the third largest network in the U.S. after Facebook and Twitter. The expansion into Europe and Japan is particularly seen as an important growth step, after the company has secured an investment of $100 million.
