People aggression is very, very rare for pits. They're really bred to be a "man's best friend" (as far as I know they were even used as "baby sitters").
That said, being dog selective or aggressive is, unfortunately, also a thing they were (and in some places still are) bred for. That doesn't mean it makes them a bad breed or bad dog, it was a wanted trait, so it's more like a feature than a fault. You should be aware of that though and while it might not come up with your puppy, it can. Also, be aware that this normally starts to show during their transitioning between adolescence and adulthood. Just because the puppy loves other dogs, does not mean she will when she gets older.
No training, socializing or anything in that direction can help to nullify these genes if prominent, but it can help to manage it.
As others have already said, she is very, very young, puppy class is highly advised. My pup is now 13 months old and as of yet she is fine with other dogs and loves to play (rough, but hey, she is a bully). As soon as I got her with 6 months, I took training lessons with a private trainer (since she is my first dog, a bully and I just wanted to get the security to be on the right track to show off my awesome behaved "dangerous" breed dog), who also does a lot of supervised play dates.
I hope she will not turn into a dog aggressive dog, I feel that I did a lot in socializing her, getting her familiar with a lot of different places and situations, she is very good with kids, but for dog aggression we have to let the genes play themselves out and see what happens.
I wish you all the best!
