The Hunt Tracks Down Clothes on Pinterest and Instagram
So tell me if this scenario sounds familiar: You’re up late browsing some social media platform on your laptop or cellphone when you see it: The most perfect dress for (insert super important up coming event)! Awesome! But… where is the dress from? Suddenly, you’re back to square one and have nothing but an awesome image of a dress you will never find. Fret not, little fashionistas. Now there’s The Hunt.
The Hunt is an online community that is dedicated to helping their users track down certain fashion items they have seen online, but cannot seem to find on their own. They aim to bridge the gap between social media platforms like Tumblr, Pintrest and Instagram, and welcome all new users to check them out.
As a registered user, you can start your own hunt simply by listing a website or even linking their personal profile to their Instagram, Pintrest or Tumblr account, and then selecting the item they are looking for. You can also add some additional descriptions as well as your desired budget which will act as a guide for the community in their search.
Other members can browse and also follow searched-for products that are listed on the community feed. If a user sees an item they have information about, they can list exact or similar online retail info directly onto the image posted. This is amazing! I can’t tell you how many items of clothing I have pinned on Pintrest and have absolutely zero idea how and where I can buy them.
The Hunt already has 65,000 active members who spend about 24-minutes on the website per day. So if you’re having doubts on whether or not this community can REALLY help you find the little perfect dress for the big upcoming event, maybe you should rethink your stance.
