Free in the '90s:

"For the journalism, it was sustaining. ... For the advertising, it was disruptive. And so the oxygen got taken out of the financial model at the same time that the journalism was bigger then ever."

Brian Steffens's curator insight, August 5, 2013 3:31 PM

Talk about disruption. Retailers used to (well, many still do) pay newspapers to run sales ads ... now Pinterest may do that for free (If Pinterest charges, I'd sure like to see that data). Sure, it will only go to those who had selected the item, but a typical sales ad is seen by hundreds or thousands who have no interest in the product. The newspaper ad still has value by getting the product in front of folks who didn't know they wanted it until they saw it on sale, but the  target audience via Pinterest are more likely buyers, thus a valuable audience.
