How much does Pinterest actually make?

I agree that $45mm run rate sounds very high for Pinterest at this juncture. $10 per registered user per month is borderline delusional.
Pinterest caught heat a few months ago for not disclosing that they were hijacking links: http://llsocial.com/2012/02/pinterest-modifying-user-submitted-pins/
I agree with Joyce that there's no way they're anywhere close to $45mm / year in revenue. Not yet at least.
