Right now, we're focused on growing Pinterest and making it more valuable. To fund these efforts, we've taken outside investment from entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. In the past, we've tested a few different approaches to making money such as affiliate links. We also plan to try promoting Pins, which our CEO Ben announced here.
Even though making money isn't our top priority right now, it is a long term goal. After all, we want Pinterest to be here to stay!
