How to Link Pinterest to Facebook

I'm sure that when I used to post pins to Pinterest, they would automatically appear on my Facebook page... but now they don't.

This could have something to do with the fact that I converted my Pinterest profile into a business account.

Investigating further, I saw a new button on pins. It allows me to share... but only to my Facebook personal profile or Twitter account... or to embed on my website if I have a widget to do so.

Yes, you can have a Pinterest tab through Shortstack but, unless you have a professional account, you would have to pay for it.

If you are a small business with less than 2000 fans, Shortstack will allow you to use their functionality to create a free tab under your cover image. But do you really want a Pinterest tab taking up one of the three most valuable pieces of real estate on your Facebook page? It's fine to have it in the also rans that people have to click to see more of.

As this blog post points out, you could post links to your Pinterest pins on your Facebook business page. But that's rather a manual process.
