We rolled out the Maketto Mood Board on Monday as our first Instagram-driven Drawing Board. It’s being used by Maketto’s two owner-operators, Erik Bruner-Yang and Will Sharp, to document the bits of creative inspiration that they run into everyday.
We’re thrilled with the photos thus far of Erik’s trip through Taiwan and Cambodia. He’s using our our new Instagram feature to capture and share the cuisine, design and culture that will become Maketto.
The integration of Popularise with Instagram is something we hope we’re just scratching the surface with. All that Erik and Will do to add an Instagram to the Mood Board is include a hashtag and thanks to the PubSubHubbub Instagram API, the photo shows up instantly.
We’re brainstorming ways that we can open this up to current and upcoming Drawing Boards so that any Popularise user can use Instagram to add their ideas to a Drawing Board. The API is full of possibilities around geotagging, hashtags and user subscriptions so there are tons of possible directions to explore with this.
