Today we tackle the latest social phenomenon: Pinterest!
Because I’m already on Pinterest, I’ll take you through the step-by-step process to add a Facebook link to your Pinterest profile if you’re already a member of Pinterest. The steps shouldn’t vary much for a new user.
You can have a live link from Pinterest to your personal Facebook profile but, currently, not to your Facebook business page. To do the former, go to the arrow by your name in the right-hand corner of your Pinterest profile. Click on the arrow to get the drop-down menu and select Settings.
Next to “Link to Facebook,” click the Off button to On and then click Save Profile.
You’ll get a pop-up that says Log In with Facebook. Select it.
When you go back to Pinterest, you’ll now have to option to Add Pinterest to Facebook Timeline. Select this only if you want to broadcast your Pins to Facebook. If you’re a heavy Pinterest user, you may not want this because your Pins can inundate your friends’ or customers’ Tickers on Facebook. If you like, you can also Find Facebook Friends on Pinterest to follow your friends pinboards.
Make your selections and then click Save Profile.
When you go back to your Pinterest profile page, you’ll have a little clickable Facebook symbol.
Full disclosure: I went through these steps to demonstrate how to connect to Facebook from Pinterest but then disabled the feature. My Pinterest profile is affiliated with my job and connecting it to my personal profile page doesn’t make sense for me personally. But if you are your brand and don’t need to separate the two, Pin away!
Another option: You can include live links to your Facebook page in your Pinterest photo captions. Doing this sparingly can help get the word out about your Facebook page.
