posted in: Social Media | 2

For some unknown reason, Facebook doesn’t allow images on Facebook to be pinned to Pinterest. In this article, I’m going to show you a very cool Pinterest Tip that will show you how to create a Pin It For Later Link to go alongside your shared Facebook image that will then allow your followers to pin your image.

Take a look at the screen capture below

I shared my Pinterest Traffic Generation Guide to Facebook then went they to Pin the image back to Pinterest using a Pin Button that I added to my Chrome browser. As you can see Facebook won’t allow me to.

So here is how to share Facebook images on Pinterest by creating a Pin It For Later Link

1/ Manually upload your image to Facebook, don’t share it to Facebook you must manually upload it. Don’t post on Facebook yet.

2/ Go to the site or page that your image is on and click your Pinterest share button, just as if you were going to share to Pinterest. A pop-up window will open like the one in the image below.

3/ Click on the link at the top of the box so that it turns blue (highlighted) and copy the link and then close the window.

4/ Go to an URL shortener like Bitly or Google Url Shortener. Shorten your URL and copy it.

5/ Go back to your Facebook post and write a description of your image post and then add the words PIN IT FOR LATER LINK after the description. 

6/ Add your shortened URL after the PIN IT FOR LATER text so that it looks like this… PIN IT FOR LATER LINK – http://bit.ly/2zAKu71

7/ Share your image with your friends and followers and you are done.
