There is possibly no need to describe what Facebook is and the respect it commands in social networking. Interestingly, Facebook with more than 2.38 billion monthly active users is quite phenomenal for generating leads, driving traffic, and making sales happen towards fostering a sustainable business. On the other hand, Pinterest is not known by many, hence comparatively a newer concept for them. But it is growing at a very fast pace with complete reliability on visually appealing pins that drive user engagement and in turn helps convert browsers to customers.
With around 250 million active users, Pinterest continues its dream stepping into reality as more and more users are constantly joining it from around the world. People find it a more relaxing place where they can enjoy things of interests and hobbies without the constant feeds of people and their lives.
However, one of the most common concerns of new Pinterest users is how they can integrate their Facebook account with Pinterest to double their social power and strengthen their digital presence with ease and convenience. Almost everybody has a Facebook account and it would be quite interesting if you could get the updates from Pinterest on Facebook Timeline. But is it even possible given that Facebook and Pinterest are competitors? Do you need to install individual applications or software to integrate the two accounts?
One can actually integrate the two accounts without downloading any software or application separately. You can get Pinterest updates on Facebook timeline by changing the settings of account. The process is quite simple.
Here are the simple steps to integrate Facebook and Pinterest:
Step 1: Firstly, log into your Pinterest account. Now locate your name on the top right of Pinterest window and click on it. A drop-down menu will appear from where choose ‘Settings’ just below the ‘Logout’ option.
Step 2: Now scroll down to Facebook settings in your Pinterest account and two options will be available there: Link to Facebook and Add Pinterest to Facebook Timeline. The first option would be probably ‘ON’ as it is in Pinterest from some time but if it’s not you can enable it in a slide with the help of mouse. Now comes the second option and you can enable it to get updates of your Pinterest activities on Facebook Timeline. While enabling any of the settings, Pinterest app will need your permission to Log in with Facebook.
Step 3: Once it’s done, you’ll be able to see repin updates on Facebook timeline and users can hover their mouse cursor over the ‘Random’ word in timeline to know more about what exactly you have pinned. It’s more of a discrete thing but finally the two platforms can be integrated within no time.
Additionally, if you are looking to show more about pins individually then that can be done manually with specific postings. You just need to go on your own Facebook Timeline and click on the gear icon. Now you can select ‘Shown on Timeline’ option and you’ll notice that a lot more information is displayed about that particular pin.
Now, enjoy the Facebook and Pinterest integration.
