    Amazon allows this, however, Pinterest is not allowing to post any affiliate links. I heard that Facebook don't like affiliate links so much because you send traffic from Facebook doing so, but it is still allowed to post them. I would suggest to do this with moderation.

    In my experience Amazon is pretty relaxed, it's the social networks you should research to see if affiliate links are allowed. If not, then maybe redirect? (again, check first)

    They're allowed for a while now, although you are still not allowed to spam.
    https://business.pinterest.com/en/blog/affiliate-links-are-now-allowed-on-pinterest

    If you want to stay on the safe side, you abide the TOS of the site, where you promote and list all your social media accounts in your Amazon account, so when Amazon wants, they can check that you comply with the TOS.

    Here's a thread regarding to how not to get into trouble when promoting Amazon on Pinterest: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/amazon-affiliate-tos-change.920704/
