Add a Pinterest account


Add a Pinterest account to Hootsuite to manage publishing to your profile along with your other social content.

Super admins, admins, and those with custom organization permissions to Add Social Networks can add social accounts to organizations.

Important: Before adding each new profile with the following steps, open another web browser tab, and make sure you are logged out of Pinterest (even in private/incognito windows).

Add a Pinterest account

  1. Go to My profile , and then select Social networks and teams.
    Social networks and teams option selected in the My profile menu
  2. For personal use: Select + Private Network in the bottom left.
    For use within an organization: Select Manage beside the org name, and then select Add a Social Network.
  3. Select Pinterest from the list on the left, and then select Connect with Pinterest.
    List of social network options with Pinterest selected, showing the Connect with Pinterest button
  4. Enter your Pinterest account credentials (email and password) and then select Log in.
    Getting the error "e.loginUser is not a function"? Sign in to the correct Pinterest account in another browser tab, and then retry this procedure.
  5. Select Give access.

Important: If you have access to Hootsuite Impact, you'll need to add your social accounts to Impact too. See Connect an organic or paid social account to Impact for those instructions.
