How to Pin a Post on Facebook

If you have an important or exciting Facebook post you want to remain visible for several days or weeks, pinning it ensures that visitors see it when they land on your profile, page, or group.

When you pin a post, it stays at the top of your profile, page, or group’s timeline until you unpin it. Even if you publish new posts on the page or group, the pinned post will remain at the top of your feed. 

Pinning a post also ensures it gets more traction – engagement, likes, clicks, or shares.

No matter your reason for pinning a particular post, this guide explains how to pin a post on a Facebook profile, page, or group, and give it the extra attention it needs.
