    Kim,
    can this be added only to a FAN page? I'm having trouble figuring out how to create a fan page for my little business on FaceBook. I have a regular page for it, but not a Fan Page. It's GreenDesigns by Cae on FB.
    Thanks,
    Catherine

    Pinterest is definitely addicting, and since I spend a lot of time there, I have been looking for ways to incorporate its platform into my business. Adding a tab to my Facebook Fan Pages is definitely going to help me do that. Thank you so much for this information. I implemented your strategy right away.

    You don't mention that this can only be added to a FB page if you pay Tabfusion $20 or $30 for VIP membership…

    • adminadmin says

      I didn’t pay for a VIP membership. Thinking this must be new since I added my tab. I will have to check it out.

  4. says

    Thanks for this great Facebook application to add tabs.  One caveat, to add the tab requires VIP membership with Fusion tab.  I purchased this because it's just plain awesome and worth it.

    • adminadmin says

      Heather, I added the tab without purchasing the VIP membership so you didn’t need to purchase for just the Pinterest tab at any rate.

    Hi Kim, thanks for this very helpful video tutorial.  I just added the Pinterest tab to my Facebook page.  However, when I click on it, it only shows one of my boards.  Is there a way to show all of my boards when someone clicks on the Pinterest tab on my Facebook page?  If so, can you let me know?  In case you'd like to see what I mean, my FB page is Love For Successful Women. 
    Thanks so much.

      Janet, tabfusion changed their model to a paid system. I have updated this article with a better method of adding the Pinterest tab to our fan pages.

    • adminadmin says

      Tabfusion changed their free model and I have updated this article with a new FREE method of adding Pinterest to your fan page.

  6. Blake says

    Looks like you have to pay for this now.  Maybe when you did it before it was free, but now it is $20 a year.

    • adminadmin says

      Tabfusion did change their free model and I have updated this article with a new FREE method of adding Pinterest to your fan page.

  7. says

    Well that couldn't have been easier!!  I'm back even before my first comment went through moderation to say it was a great tutorial and thanks for the info.  Next up, change my tab image!  :)

    Thank you so much for the walk-through. I'm having a problem, though, and I'm not sure if you'll know the answer – my boards show up just fine, but when I click on them, the tab just goes blank and nothing happens. I'd much prefer those link to my boards so fans can find them. Do you know what I can fix? Thank you!

  9. says

    I did get the app installed, but my boards won't open inside of the window. It shows my page with multiple boards, but won't open a board?

  10. says

    These instructions were great, I'm  not techie and it solved it much more easily than many other sites mentioned. Thanks so much my page is looking much better now. 

  11. Callie says

    I have a question.  If I want someone that sees a photo on facebook to be able to pin that photo so the link goes back to my facebook page, how do I do that?  I want it easy for my customers so I don't have to explain it.  I have the pinterest added to my page so they can see my board but that's not what I'm looking for.  Does that make sense?

    Hey Kim
    I'm trying to add Pinterest to my Facebook business page, but it doesn't work. When i go to http://apps.facebook.com/iframehost Facebook tells me that i have to switch from using Facebook as my professional page, to using Facebook as my personal self. 
    Is there a possibility to add Pinterest to my professional page and to solve this problem?
    Thanks
    Laetitia

    • adminadmin says

      You do have to be on your personal profile but it will give you the option to add to your fan page.

  13. Mike Jensen says

    Just copy the link on #1 and don't click on it…or it will take you to the pay site. Worked for me at least.

  14. says

    This has been a great couple of hours of fun for various clients today. Opening each of their Facebook Profiles in turn and then clicking the WooBox UR for the iframe worked well.
    It's a bit clunky when trying to get back in to do a second, third e.t.c. free frame appears up to 9 are free per profile user.

    Very easy to use. Thank you for this post it's been really helpful and perfectly timed.
     

  15. says

    Great tip and so easy to integrate. Thanks a lot for doing that.
     
    I'm only been on Pinterest for 1 week, but am seeing the potential for my business.

    Thanks for the great information!  I was able to get it to work just fine.  Woohoo!   I do have a question though…when I open my Pinterest tab or view it it has two small gray boxes under my name with no image.  I click on them and it is a link to my website and Twitter…which is fine but how do I get an image in there.  Why are they just gray?   

  17. says

    I followed your instructions (I think) and the tab was installed correctly and is visible however no images from pinterest are showing up when I click into the tab. What did I miss?

  18. says

     
    Greetings, I'm narmi and I’m a webmaster I'm brand new here. I love fashion very much I cherish mold. I'm a upbeat individual and I appreciate my regular existence absolutely much. I adore grinning. It's practically the same as my name, narmi. I trust that my essence is full of joy. At the same time I know it relies on me. So I'm ready to offer my existence and my temperaments to you.

    Hi, I am trying to use the Static Iframe app to install a Pinterest button on my Facebook Fan page. After filling out the form and clicking the save settings button it just keeps me on the form page. It doesn't even offer an "Authorize Tab Setting" button. I then go to the installed Pinterest button which just directs me to a page that says "Unauthorized". I was able to install a Twitter button with no issues, After saving the settings on the Twitter form it forwarded me to a page that said grant access. I don't get this option when installing the Pinterest button. Please help and thank you for your reply.

  20. says

    Thank you for the informative read.  I was wondering how to create a Pinterest on my Facebook Page, but I didn't know how.  I stumbled on your site, and this is exactly what I needed.  

  21. says

    Today I was searching on the internet about this issue, but now I have found the best method of integrating pinterest in facebook fan pages, thanks a lot for this nice work :) 

  23. says

    Just wanted to point out that there is now an official Pinterest app designed by this company that corrects the inability to display the actual pinterest page in lieu of the mobile page.  Looks amazing.  When you go to install IFRAME there is now a new link added below the Install Page Tab button that says to click if you are looking to create a Pinterest page.  Follow the steps, 2 clicks, and you are up and running without having to use the mobile version.

  24. Rachel says

    Your tutorial was very easy and helpful in getting this set up quickly however, I inserted the "m" but now it links to the mobile version when on a computer (doesn't look good) and when I check my profile on an iPhone there is no tab that shows up to take you to the mobile version – so adding the m isn't helpful. I tried to go back and change the url connection but there is no way to do it. I tried uninstalling the app and adding it back on but it remembers everything and sets it up without giving you a chance. I then tried adding a whole new tab and it asked for permission to log into my page twice a day… 

  25. says

    I have been looking for ways to integrate Pinterest into my Facebook page, and being a newbie on these things, it is not easy. However, thanks for this tutorial. I have been able to get a complete picture and integrated Pinterest into FB page successfully. The setup was smooth and successful during the first time. What a great relief to see other social media outlets in my FB page. Very helpful and THANK YOU again!

    Heya! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work?
    I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a
    blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

    • Kim Garst says

      It does take time and work but it is so worth that investment. I would strongly recommend you use WordPress on your own website.

  27. says

    Superb blog! Do you have any tips

    and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website

    soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend
    starting with a free platform like

    WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices
    out there that I’m completely confused .. Any tips? Thanks!

  28. says

    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thanks a lot

  29. Jessica says

    This page is excellent, thanks so much. My problem is that I’ve now changed the name of my Pinterest page and I tried to uninstall it on my Facebook page and then reinstall it but it won’t let me, Frustrating! Any ideas would be gratefully received! x

  30. says

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Hi! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and
    say I truly enjoy reading your articles. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with
    the same topics? Many thanks!

  32. says

    I leave a leave a response each time I like a post on a site or I
    have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it is a result of the passion displayed in the post I browsed.
    And after this article How to Add a Pinterest Tab to Your Facebook Fan Page.

    I was actually excited enough to drop a comment :) I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend
    not to mind. Is it only me or does it look like a few of these responses appear like left
    by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other
    online social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have
    to post. Could you list all of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
