Based in Los Angeles, the site launched in its current iteration one month ago. It has received more than 500,000 unique visitors in the first month. Every day, users share 4,000 videos on the site. But should Chill really be called “the Pinterest of video”?
“It’s not an unfair comparison given we both utilize the masonry user interface and emphasize the sharing of interesting content,” says Founder Brian Norgard. It’s true: A picture (on Pinterest) may be worth 1,000 words. But in a video, you’ll be able to hear and understand all 1,000 words.
