Facebook makes it hard to pin images. There is a way you can use Pinterest and Facebook together, and we will show you how!
Once you get the content uploaded to Facebook that you want to share, log in to Pinterest and upload the same content. If it is a video like I am using in this example, take a screen shot of the video and upload that to Pinterest. If it is an image, then just upload that same image again. Next to your profile in Pinterest is a plus sign. Click that and select Upload a Pin.
Once you get the image uploaded you will see the Pick a Board option. You can select the appropriate board or create a new one, if you need to, by typing in the name of the new board.
Enter in the description of the pin that you just uploaded and hit Pin it.
Now navigate to the new pin and you will see your pin in the board that you either added it to, or created.
Click your new pin that you just uploaded and click the little pencil under the image. This will let you edit the pin and allow you to put a link for the source of the image. CRUCIAL to get this pin to redirect to Facebook!
Once you hit the pencil you will see this window pop up.
Now head over to Facebook and get the direct link to the post you are wanting to link to, and copy the link and paste it in the source box on Pinterest and then save changes.
Now when I click that pin, it will take me to Facebook! Voila! You have now used Pinterest to pin from Facebook and are taking advantage of two major social network platforms available to you!
This concept also works the same way if you want to pin images from Instagram and and other social media networks! Take a snapshot of the instagram photo and input the link the same. Once you go to your instagram account online.... you will see all your photos. Choose the photo you want to share, and grab the link and input it into pinterest after you upload the photo in the steps above. :)
