ZURICH, December 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Thingle (http://www.thingle.com) is about things and has just launched. USA's NBC News calls the concept ┬źPinterest on steroids┬╗.
Thingle focuses on ┬źthings┬╗ - objects of passion. They're embedded into an impressive and user-friendly platform, enabling anyone to create their own things and content... and to add to the content of others.
In contrast to other purely visual social bookmarking platforms, Thingle achieves a much deeper and richer level of information through both its collaborative approach and its clear focus on objects of the real world. Simply put, Thingle could be summed up as ┬źPinterest meets Wikipedia┬╗.
In a short time, Thingle has been able to attract a large number of users to its platform. Some of the world's leading agencies, including several with headquarters in New York, are already making plans to adopt Thingle as a communications solution for their clients.
In the past seven days the launch of the Thingle beta website has also attracted widespread attention in the US media and blogosphere, with well-known media houses such as NBC News, CBS News, the San Francisco Chronicle and many more reporting on its innovative approach to the social media field.
Thingle is a Swiss based company with offices in Zurich and New York. The company was founded in 2011 and employs about 15 people from 7 countries.
Thingle is one of the winners of the Swiss Top 100 Startups 2012, chosen by a jury of 100 recognised experts in a field of 100,000 start-up businesses. Thingle even ranked 3rd in the ┬źQuickstarter┬╗ category. This underlines Thingle's place as one of the most innovative and promising Swiss start-ups.
