What if you could combine the addictive photo-grazing of Pinterest with the addictive voyeurism of Facebook? Then you’d have Friendsheet, the new app from developer Zach Allia that lets you turn the photos from your news feed into a Pinterest-esque visual feast.

TechCrunch reports that Friendsheet jumped from 60,000 users to 150,000 users thanks to the “Like” of a single man — the Zuckster himself, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

It works by using Facebook Connect to display all of the photos in your news feed on a wide board, neatly jigsawed together with comments listed underneath each picture. Hmm, sound familiar?

As TechCrunch points out, while Facebook uses a sorting algorithm to only display photos from your close friends, Friendsheet has no such barrier to entry, meaning you’ll end up perusing photos from friends you forgot you had.

You can also use the app to look only at your own photos, perfect for today’s busy narcissist. Creating a cleaner viewing experience is easy by hiding both comments and captions.

You can also “Like,” share and comment on photos directly from the Friendsheet app, as well as upload new photos to your account.

Sure, the layout isn’t as attractive as that of Pinterest — not to mention people are far less discriminating about what pictures they post to Facebook — but the easy, endless scrolling and sheer volume of photos displayed makes it a fun way to kill a few minutes catching up on what your friends are up to.
