I know I'm not alone here. Most brand owners work really hard to consistently post great, inspiring content on their Facebook page. Which is why it''s so annoying that you can't easily (there is a time consuming work around) pin directly from Facebook-- until now. Enter Pinvolve. Thanks to Pinvolve, you can now convert your Facebook page into a Pinterest board.
Pinvolve is a nifty Facebook app that allows users to share content from their Facebook fan page to Pinterest. What Pinvolve does is that it adds the famous “Pin It” button to your Facebook fan page, so that you can share stuff on Pinterest without opening a new tab; or having to cut and paste a URL. The app also pulls in the Facebook likes and comments associated with each post, as well as the comments’ text. If a post has a lot of comments, however, only the first few will be listed on the main Pinvolve page, with a link to the rest provided below. When clicked, that link will take you to the photo’s page on Facebook.
Interestingly, Pinvolve isn’t just about re-displaying Facebook content with a Pinterest look-and-feel, it also provides tools that let you and the page’s fans re-share those posts over on Pinterest. When you hover over an image on the Pinvolve pinboard, Pinterest’s “Pin it” button appears. Clicking this will then re-post that content to Pinterest itself.
To add it to your Page, just open Pinvolve on Facebook and click on Add to My Page. It will add a Pinvolve tab on your Facebook Page showing all of your recent posts. Pinvolve currently offers three pricing levels: free, $5 per month, or $25 per month. The free package allows limited interaction between Facebook and Pinterest, while the still-affordable $25 per month subscription allows unlimited interaction. The company’s most popular service is the $5 per month subscription, which allows almost unlimited usage, as long as you only have one fan page to promote. Each package includes a free 14-day trial, which is easily cancelled or upgraded via customer support. To try out Pinvolve free, head over to the page here: http://apps.facebook.com/pinvolve
