Send Pins To Friends

image

Have you ever seen a pin you knew a certain friend or family member would love? Now you can send pins directly to your friends and fellow pinners from the web or your phone. You can even include a message to give it a more personal touch!

Just tap Send from either web or mobile to send a pin. You can send pins to fellow pinners (if you both follow each other), Facebook friends, or email contacts. We’ll show you the most recent people you’ve sent pins to for easy access.

Your friend will see the pin in their notifications or in their email.

If they repin, like or comment on the pin, we’ll let you know through notifications, too!

It was possible to send pins before, through e-mail, but we’ve made it even easier. We’ll be rolling out this feature over the next few weeks. If you can’t send pins yet, sit tight and you’ll be able to soon.

We hope you’re excited to send pins to your friends!
