Blogger Question: How To Add Pinterst, Instagram and Twitter Social Tabs to Facebook page

I had a late night call yesterday, nothing seedy, with the hilarious Alyssa of AlistedBlog.com so I could help her set up theFEED on her blog mobile site. It was late because of the time difference, Alyssa is based in NY and I’m based in London Town so what is the evening for her is the middle of the night for me! This doesn’t bother me though because I spend more time speaking to people in America than I do in England, my body clock is completely off! Or on, depending how you look at it!

 

Whilst setting up theFEED for Alyssa, apart from the jokes she was giving me, she asked a question about Facebook tabs so I made a note of her request and I am making a tutorial on TheFashionTechnologist to help her and anyone else with this issue.

The Question: How do I create social tabs on my blog’s Facebook page?!

 

I am going to take you through adding three different types of Social tabs (Pinterest, Istagram and Facebook), so you can pick and choose which one’s you want for your own Facebook page.

 

Pinterest

Go To This Link: https://apps.facebook.com/pinterest-tab/

Click on the blue button named “Install Application”

Choose the page you would like your Pinterest Tab to show then click “Add Page Tab”

Facebook will then redirect you to your new Pinterest Tab. You’ll notice the pin’s that show automatically are general, to have your pin’s show, from the administrator panel type in your Pinterest username and from the dropdown tab choose “User Pins” – then “Save Settings”
