On the heels of its $40 million round announced last week, design flash sales site Fab has launched a new LiveFeed feature. It looks an awful lot like Pinterest, the massive photo sharing virtual pinboard site.

Fab’s new feed captures all activity taking place on the site including purchasing, sharing, commenting, and more. It’s a unique way to see what others are doing and buying on the site.
