Consumers Can Interact with Pinterest on Facebook Messenger

Seeing as more than a million pins from Pinterest are shared to Messenger every week, the social pinboard platform aimed to make the experience of sharing content easier with a new chat extension and a bot from Pinterest on Facebook Messenger.

Now, when a Pinterest pin is shared in Messenger, Facebook users are able to get a better look at the idea and more quickly reference details about the project or product. To help social media users easily search for inspiration without leaving a chat, this new tool enables users to plug in terms like "food" or "DIY" in order to call up recommendations directly from Pinterest.

This new feature for Facebook Messenger users prioritizes seamless mobile searches and on-the-go viewing, as well as conversational sharing.
