That is the question … How to share your Facebook Brand on Pinterest? We are talking about YOU sharing the Content you Create for YOUR Brand where eager consumers can find it.
When you create value and inspiration on Facebook, it is a tragedy for that to be lost down your timeline, and Pinterest is a place to showcase your content where people will find it by
- searching directly for keywords
- browsing your profile after a search
- clicking on one of your pins in their news-feed
- following you
- you following them
In a previous post “9 Steps To Optimise and Share Your Blog on Pinterest” I showed you how to optimise your connection between your blog and Pinterest, but I bet you also have content on Facebook which should be shared to the Pinterest search engine!
So, in this post I am focusing on how you can share your content from Facebook to Pinterest using several different methods.
Depending on what you are sharing, and to which board you are sharing it on … a business one, or a more personal one, you could use a combination of them all at different times.
What is Funky about Pinterest is that you can categorise your Boards by
- individual things eg. chairs, tables, bookshelves
- or combine them into items for my new office
- or even broader as furniture for my dream home
So, a board could be for
- Quotes I love
- or My Inspirational Ideas and Posts
- or My Facebook Group Posts
You can be as narrow or as broad as you wish, and I suggest a combination.
Because you can then Pin the same post to several boards 🙂
Top Tip ~ Design your boards so you can Pin the same Pin to more than one, and it still be appropriate!
Think how your niche would search for you, they may initially search for a necklace, and they have more chance of finding you if you have this on several boards (obviously with your keywords in each description) for example..
- on your board categorized as ‘necklaces’
- on a board called ‘My Jewellery Box’
- on a board ‘Stunning Wedding Jewellery’
Facebook to Pinterest using The Chrome Extension ‘P‘ browser button
Facebook likes to keep it’s traffic in house, and unlike all other websites, does not allow you to Pin directly and include the link back to Facebook!
But this can be done… and works perfectly fine for a one-off Pin (see ‘Facebook to Pinterest … The Manual Method’ below)

A Fantastic way to Pin your Facebook Profile Posts (including images) and Facebook Page Posts to Pinterest using automatic recipes.

My Top Manual Method … Facebook to Pinterest
Here is a Video to show this process
Note ~ you can use also this method to Pin content from your Facebook pages and groups.
How To Pin an Image from Facebook To Pinterest
Here are written Instructions…
- Open your Pinterest Profile
- Open Your Facebook Profile
- Click on your chosen timeline image to open it in your gallery
- Right click on the image
- Click ‘Copy Image address’
- Go to your chosen Pinterest Board
- Click on the + Save a Pin
- Click on ‘Save from the Web’
- Enter the copied image address and click ‘next’
- Click your image which will appear at the top
- Edit or add a description (under the image)
- Choose your board and click ‘Save’
- Click ‘See it Now” if you are quick enough!!
- Pop back to Facebook and copy the url from above the image you just pinned
- Return to your Pinterest image and click ‘Edit’ at the top
- Paste the Facebook url into the ‘Website’ box and Save
- TEST by clicking your image… it will link back to your original one on Facebook 😊
Facebook to Pinterest using Hootsuite or Buffer
Both Hootsuite and Buffer on PC have browser buttons, which will lift images from Facebook using the link back to the image, this works fine for sharing onto most social accounts, except Pinterest and Instagram. To do this you need to save, then upload the image you want to share first.
So the Hootsuite and Buffer browser buttons are not the most effective way to share to Pinterest from Facebook.
Top Tip ~ Open a Tailwind Account
So sharing to Pinterest can become a regular part of your marketing and web browsing experience every day. It is a handy place to save information by pinning an image to a board to come back and read/use later, especially if you are gathering information to use for a project. You can also use secret boards for this purpose.
And it’s really easy to schedule as you go!
