What I love most is the Private Photo sharing feature:
By which I can send secret photo to my friends to have a look, and after they have seen the picture, it will automatically be destroyed. No worry at all. This is really a sweet feature. The fake Pin feature, I do not think they are necessary, better to arrange the pictures in better orders.
