I think Nick's distinction between platforms and systems is important -
when you posted the original question I tried to put that exact issue into
words and he has summed it up in just two!

If you're looking for platforms then the list is endless - for starters you
should certainly add Flickr, Pinterest etc. I'm doubly glad I'm going to
UKMW2012 now as I'll be fascinated to see Nick's presentation about these.
You might do as well to build a simple matrix of your required features and
audiences, and equally of their requirements - for example if not all items
can be geotagged that rules out Historypin (and others, like newcomer
Findery); if not all items have images then that rules out Flickr ...

You could end up concluding that none of them fit the bill, and then you'll
be back to a web-enabled system. But even if that is the case don't rule
out putting certain curated sets on carefully targeted platforms.

My 2p!

James
