Advertising on Pinterest

Like all the other popular social media sites Pinterest is looking to advertising as a revenue source into the future.

And recently they've been visiting media agencies to showcase their planned advertising platform.

The pics above and below show how an ad would look on a typical Pinterest page/board.

Those red boxes are to highlight the ads. They won't be a part of the advertising.

I like the fact that ads on Pinterest will look just like the pics pinned to a Pinterest board.

But I can't help wondering why you'd pay good money (and it ain't gonna be cheap) to put ads on a page that don't stand out.

This is surely wallpaper advertising at its finest.

Or should that be worst?
