YAY!
I sooooo don't like this. I wish we could opt out. I think that items that are obviously promotional will get fewer views and repins. Why would I want to repin someone else's advertisements??? Pinterest is a place to feature the items that you love, not the items you are selling. We pin a few of our own favorite items that we sell in hopes of getting views, bet this causes a major reduction in repins.
I consider it free advertising for me, for all of us! Love it!! Feel free to pin me. I will gladly return the favor.
i'm not sure it will cause a reduction in repins. on the contrary, i think it's a great way for people to make a holiday wishlist for other folks to see. or a bridal registry or baby gifts. this is a way for people to create a shopping list - complete with prices right there..

since we aren't promoting ourselves (considered not so good) all the pins will be from other folks who are truly interested in our goods. like linda said, free advertising and promotion.

it's a good thing.
I think it's good as long as people aren't constantly pinning their own things. I know a lot of people do this and it's not good.

But for those pinning stuff they want to buy, it's a great thing!
