Pinterest has raised $200M in financing at a valuation of $2.5B as VCs such as Andreessen Horowitz, Bessemer and FirstMark Capital continue to throw money at the online scrapbooking site, whose business model is still just "nascent." It was only in May that Pinterest raised $140M at a $1.5B. Still, visits surged to 48M in December from 9M a year earlier.
