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.
