posted in: Social Media | 0


This is a very quick guide and tutorial that will show you how you can pin images from absolutely any website to Pinterest.

It’s always a great idea to cross promote between social media sites. It’s a social media strategy that brings in new followers and new engagement from one social media site to another. But for some reason, Facebook doesn’t always like to play with other social media sites one of which is Pinterest


But not to worry there is a very simple fix so you can now pin Facebook Images to your Pinterest Boards and boost your social media management strategy.

Pinterest share buttons just don’t work when you try to share images from Facebook to Pinterest.

Facebook doesn’t support pinning to Pinterest.

When you click your button you get an annoying pop up stopping you fast in your tracks.
