Pinbook App: Pin Photos from Facebook

I’ve recently started to use Pinterest and just like everyone else before me I am hooked. I love that I am able to take everything that interests me online and have it beautifully stored and organized on my Pinterest boards.  The only issue that I have with Pinterest is that it does not allow me to pin from Facebook. After trying unsuccessfully and looking up some tutorials on the matter, I stumbled upon an application that makes the whole process a lot easier. Pinbook App, a new chrome extension, makes pinning from Facebook a breeze. Once you have downloaded the application, you will see that all pictures on your Facebook page now have pins beside them, allowing you to post them effortlessly to your boards. This app is now one of my faves! I definitely recommend this app for all you pinners out there. Happy Pinning Everyone!!
