Update: Pinterest is currently not available on Sendible.

After working closely with Pinterest, we were informed that they no longer consider themselves a social network and do not wish for their platform to be a place for marketers and publishers to distribute their content.

Instead, they want their platform to deliver a rich, personal experience for their users, enabling them to easily curate and source useful content related to their interests. You can read more about their mission here.

We are now working closely with Pinterest to improve the Sendible experience so that it more closely resembles the experience you would find on Pinterest.

 

We are excited to announce the full release of Sendible's new Pinterest service. This new feature has been added alongside our other social networks integrations in Sendible's all-in-one social media management dashboard. This feature update enables you to post/schedule pins to specific boards and retrieve detailed analytics to your reporting dashboard.
