If you have a Pinterest profile, you might want to let your Facebook page fans know about it in case they're interested in following you there as well. The more Facebook fans you get to follow you on Pinterest, the more likely they'll see your pins and save them to their own boards — which could result in more saves, followers and clickthroughs.

You can add a Pinterest tab to the left vertical column of your Facebook page, which fans will be able to click on to see your latest Pinterest pins. It's easy to do thanks to a third-party app called Woobox.

Your fans will be able to look at your boards on this Pinterest tab similar to how they can on the Pinterest platform. When they click a board, they'll stay on your Facebook page and the tab will display all the pins for that board.

When they click on a pin, a new browser tab will open showing the pin on Pinterest.com.

If you choose to display all your boards on your Pinterest board as opposed to the pins of a specific board, you might notice that the order of the boards may not be displayed exactly as how you have them arranged on your Pinterest profile. Unfortunately, you can't drag them around on your Facebook page's Pinterest tab the way you can on your Pinterest profile to reorder them.
