    Pinterest has just opened registration to the public after two years of requiring an invite to join. Anyone can now sign up with Twitter, Facebook, or just an email address.

    does it really make a difference ?

    Yes, there will be more spam, Pinterest is already the easiest site to spam, Pinterest is going to dead.

    I don't see removing that 'filter' making much of a difference at all at this point. Which is more than likely one of the reasons they've gotten rid of it.

    No Not At All Pinterest Is All Set To Combat Spam And Its Taking Its Own Precautions.

    Here Is The Following What Pinterest Says.

    1. Commenting on many pins very quickly (especially comments including a link)
    2. Posting the same comment many times (especially a comment including a link)
    3. Following lots of users very quickly
    4. Pinning, repinning, and/or liking pins very quickly - particularly repeatedly pinning things which all link to the same source
    5. Using a link-shortener or a link-redirect, for example: bit.ly or other link-shorteners - try using the full link in a comment or pin description instead! Also try pinning from the original source without using a link-redirect

    Sure pinterest will become more and more stricter like facebook.

    yes, they probably will become more and more strict but i don't think pinterest will ever be as hard as facebook.
    pinterest is a secondary social network while facebook is a primary social network.
    example, you use a facebook account to create a pinterest account.
    facebook is much more serious than pinterest.
    just use multiple accounts to spread out your marketing so you stay under the radar.
