Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Ivo Madaleno, who blogs at Enjoy Living la Vida.

Ever since I agreed to do this post for pinnablebusiness.com I have been searching for a subject that was (P)interesting! In my searching I discovered a problem many businesses are having—integrating Pinterest into Facebook. For me this topic is extremely (P)interesting.

A popular question many businesses with a facebook page are wondering is:

HOW CAN WE LINK OUR FACEBOOK PAGE WITH OUR PINTEREST ACCOUNT?

The simple answer is that you can’t, at least not intuitively! Pinterest’s Help desk states rather clearly: “You can only use a personal Facebook profile with Pinterest. We recommend brands use a Twitter account to authenticate.”

So, according to Pinterest it is not possible to link your Pinterest profile with a Facebook Page. It is only a matter of time, I believe, before we see Pinterest releasing this feature. Unless, of course, Google decides it can’t live without Pinterest and buys it.

Most business have two options for resolving this issue: 1. Follow Pinterest’s Help Desk suggestions, or 2. Hacking their Facebook Page to at least iframe their Pinterest account. However, neither solution is a great solution.

Fortunately, with Woobox, a third party Facebook app, there is a way to add all your beautiful Pinterest things. It is actually rather simple and below I show in two videos how to do it.

Step 1: Activate Your Facebook Settings in Pinterest

Step 2: Add Woobox to Your Facebook Account

Once you have done these two steps you are ready to go. And now your Facebook Page is a lot more (P)interesting!

      I found that as well but wish Pinterest would add auto post to your Facebook PAGE rather than 3rd parties cashing in on this feature not being available by default.

      Nice post, ivomadaleno.

    Thank you, this tutorial was really helpful. Some settings had changed since you created this vid, but with a bit of hunting it worked: I now have a Pinterest tab on my page without siging in with my personal account.

    Many thanks.

    I have a business facebook page and have followed your instructions to add Pinterest to my facebook account but I cannot “turn on” the connect with facebook button. Has something changed?

    Hi there, Is there any way to link a pinterest account to a facebook FAN page?? Will appreciate your help. Andrea

  6. Thanks Ivo! Very helpful videos.

    The only downside to this is that Woobox has a f25 post limit, so none of your boards will show anything more than 25 posts. I just discovered that. Otherwise, it’s a very nice app! I use it on my fan page.
