ASK A Blogger: Pinterest

Pinterest is all the rage right now. Showing off your pics can help get traffic to your site and in turn, potentially increase your revenue.

Adding a Pinterest Tab to your Facebook Page can help get your Pinterest Page in front of your fans and hopefully, get them repining your photos.

How to Set Up a Facebook Pinterest Tab:

  1. Sign up for a Pinterest account if you haven’t already.
  2. Go to https://apps.facebook.com/iframehost-pin/to install a Static IFRAME Tab.
  3. Click “Install Page Tab” or click on an icon to install a tab with the icon. (I chose to add a static Pin icon)
  4. Authorize the Application and choose your Page to add the app.
  5. Click “Add Static IFRAME Tab”.
  6. You will be redirected to your Facebook Page.
  7. To complete your tab setup – click on the new tab link on the left hand side of the page.
  8. You will be required to “Authorize the Tab Application” again.
  9. Click to “Allow” your basic information & email address.
  10. Under “Page Source” Select “URL” and enter your Pinterest page link (this will load the URL in the iframe window).
  11. Change the height of your page to remove the scroll bar. Mine is set to 1400px, but you may need to increase it if you have more boards.
  12. Name your Tab (I choose PINTEREST).
  13. Click “Save Settings”.
  14. View your new Pinterest tab and make adjustments as needed.

    Thanks for the info! I am totally addicted to Pinterest now and would love to share all of my pins with my Facebook friends.

    I really like Pinterest, but I just feel like I don’t really have enough time to really get into it. I do love that you can have a Pinterest tab on Facebook.

    I like Pinterest, but I haven’t figured out all the ins and outs as of yet. I am sure it will take me some time, but I am not at the level of finesse I would like on Google+ yet! Technology moves so fast, we don’t know how to use the last greatest thing before a new one is on the scene.

    I really enjoy posting things on Pinterest! But it is easy to get carried away with all there is to look at!!! Time zooms by while you are enjoying everything!!!

  5. Karen Partin says

  6. Lee Black says

    I really like Pinterest…you can find so many cool things there! But, I have been hearing that there may be some legal issues coming up about repinning stuff that is not your own. Are you worried at all about that?

  7. Debbie R says

    This was very informational a basic enough for the beginner (like me) to understand. I love this kind of info. Thank you for sharing it.
