Pinterest, known as being the fastest growing social network, is going to test out a new monetization strategy. Pinterest is going to try out a new ad platform called “Promoted Pins.” Pinterest is a social network that lets users find and share interesting images and content on the web called “pins.”
Brands that buy the Promoted Pins will get special placement of their products in Pinterest’s category feeds and search engine.
The company is not collecting money from advertisers yet and the Promoted Pins will be clearly marked as such.
