Facebook is no doubt the leading social media platform, but when Pinterest captured the attention of the social masses, it challenged the popularity of the social media empire like no other entity could. One of the coolest features of Pinterest is its attractive interface that lets users organize and share mind blowing images with others. On the other hand, Facebook Timeline is one feature that has not been well received by many users. If you want to get away from the Facebook timeline look, and instead view your Facebook profile like a Pinterest profile, then this tutorial shows you how to get a Pinterest look on Facebook.
How to Get a Pinterest Look on Facebook
PinView is a Facebook app that converts your Facebook page to a Pinterest type profile page. That is, it converts your Facebook categories such as the news feed, photos, videos et. al. into Pinterest-type boards that make for a more attractive viewing.
To get started:
1. Login to Facebook and navigate to https://apps.facebook.com/pinviewer/
2. Click the green Click to Get Started button.
3. Then click Go to App.
4. Click Allow to grant permission to the app to access your data.
The app now sets about converting your Facebook timeline to a Pinterest type profile. Quick links to your wall, friends, photos and videos are available at the top menu and the stories are displayed on boards. You can like, comment and share the stories by hovering over a board and choosing an option.
PinView certainly converts a dull and dreary looking Facebook timeline into something more attractive. If you enjoy spending time on Pinterest, this Facebook app is certainly worth a try.
