Do you love video games? Even better, do you prefer Flash video games? Then Pong might be right up your alley.

Pong (“Pin Online Network Games), a free social network that looks similar to Pinterest, allows users to share their favorite Flash games from around the Web by “pong-ing” them on the platform’s boards with the “Pong it” button, which they will need to add to their browser.

When a game is pong-ed, it links back to the game’s website, and all ad revenue goes to the original publisher. Members can also follow other members to check out what games they are interested in, and share and comment on games.

To start, Pong has provided seven board categories:

• Action & Arcade;
• Retro;
• Strategy & Defense;
• Shooter;
• Puzzle & Skill;
• Adventure & RPG; and
• Sports & Racing.

Users can play games anonymously, or they can register, which allows them to create their own boards of Flash games. Pong users can also invite their Facebook friends to Pong and share Pong on Facebook Timelines.
