Godinterest is a Christian social network created in 2014 by Dean Jones, a member of Seventh-day Adventist Church of South England Conference in United Kingdom. Its purpose is to promote Christian values and facilitate spiritual inspiration through the sharing of photographs and other media in the style of Pinterest. Its content includes media about Christian history, personal, family oriented stories and various contents from a Christian viewpoint.
Godinterest is a free website where users can share their photos and videos collections by creating personal accounts or linking to their existing social media ones. To use Godinterest, you need to have a URL to a page with an image you want to share, similar to pinning on Pinterest. You then add a title, choose a category, and upload. It is a bit more tedious than just clicking a "pin it" button, but has the same result.
Godinterest operates also within a Christian environment where a separate platform is dedicated to Christian entrepreneurs and ministries who can use it to collect and share photos of miscellaneous events, interests and hobbies.
According to Quantcast, Godinterest received more than seven thousands visits in its first month of activity and reached more than six thousands users monthly. Furthermore, its users tend to be young adults from the middle class with females outnumbering males (55% against 45%).
