Pinterest, one of the most popular social networking websites in the world (but isn't exactly your typical social networking website), has introduced its first ever feature to monetize their overly popular website. Push aside, promoted pins are here to grab your attention. The company clarified that this new move of theirs is only an "experiment" and that the promoted pins will be marked, so that a user knows what it really is, and will be relevant to the user's tastes.
Facebook had introduced a similar feature a couple of months back, which didn't work out too well. Let's see how far Pinterest goes with this.
