How to Stop Pinterest from Posting on Facebook?

If you have set your Pinterest account to automatically post your Pins to your Facebook account and want it to stop, it is pretty easy to unlink them. You can either do it from Pinterest or from Facebook. Once you unlink the two accounts, you will no longer be able to log into Pinterest with Facebook.

Pinterest is a popular social media platform designed for both individuals and businesses. Many people set up their Pinterest account using their Facebook login information.

If you would like this to no longer be the case then just keep reading. This article will teach you how to stop Pinterest from posting your Pins to Facebook.
