Promoted Pins are bought by companies to show in Pinterest Users’ feeds. The Promoted Pins marketed to you are ones that should relate to your areas of interest. I say it loosely only because targeted ads aren’t always the best unless they are using cookies to directly show you what you were previously looking at.
