The Easiest Way to Post Pinterest Pins onto Your Facebook Page. More Pinterest marketing tips and tutorials found on MCNGmarketing.com

This blog post will go over how you can easily post your Pinterest pins onto a Facebook page or group from within the Pinterest platform.

Anna Vanlandingham, from Pinterest Pro, for sharing this with me. It’s greatly appreciated.

Connect Your Pinterest with Your Facebook Account

Now before you can post directly to any Facebook page or Facebook group from Pinterest you have to connect your personal Facebook account with Pinterest.

You can easily do this by going to the desktop version of Pinterest and going to your account settings and scrolling down to the section about logging in with your social networks. Make sure you connect your Facebook account.

Now you’re ready for the next step.

How to Post Pinterest Pins Onto Facebook Pages 

In order for you to post onto a particular Facebook page or group, click on your desired pin until it expands.

Once it does, you will see a Facebook share button at the top right hand corner.  Click on it and a drop down menu will now appear. The drop down menu allows you to post Pinterest pins onto your personal Facebook timeline, a friend’s timeline, Facebook pages and groups and through private messages.

It also shows a preview of what the pin will look like on Facebook.

If you happen to be a social media marketer this means that you can now post pins onto any particular Facebook page that you manage.

A Word of Caution…

This has nothing to do with actually posting as so much about the fact that when you do connect your Facebook you are still using your personal account. And Pinterest will put your personal Facebook url in the header.

This means people can check out your personal Facebook page, so ensure you have them on the proper privacy settings.

A popular question I get asked is whether we can replace that personal Facebook url with a Facebook business page url. At the time of the writing you can’t, but if that does change I’ll make sure to update this blog post.

If you’re interested in doing the reverse, and want to post Facebook posts onto Pinterests, that’s not as easy. This blog post will explain how.

    I connected with my FB account, but I still don’t get the “Share” button when I click on a pin.

      Hi Kim, they’ve moved the “Share” button to the Send button now. When you click on Send, you will at the bottom there’s an option to share it on Facebook. Pinterest with all their different changes huh?

          @vincentngmcngmarketing:disqus Thank you for posting this I’ve been pinning things since March 29 and they haven’t been showing up on my Facebook feed. When they used to without me having to do anything EXTRA. And I just thought this was one more change at Pinterest to PUT up with. Well it seems you have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the pin box and check BOTH the Facebook and Twitter checkboxes if you want to share your pins to them now. Would have been nice if Pinterest would have publicized this change or at least made users aware of it.

          @disqus_eb48ht5Oa3:disqus if you turn off your pop up blocker it should work.

    when I try to post a quote on facebook from Pinterest, it is in a zoom feature and it only shows part of the quote. How do I change that?

    • allisonR

      Yes I’d love to know if it’s possible to see more of the image!

  • JeanniePence

    I keep trying to sharing my Facebook business page, but get an error from Pinterest. Any idea what could be wrong?

  • Jennifer Gibson

    My pinterest account is connected to facebook but I can no longer share to facebook, nothing happens when I hit facebook in the send options
