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!
