How to Invite a Friend to Join Pinterest

When your friends see how much fun you’re having with Pinterest, they might want in on the action. You can formally invite a friend to join Pinterest by logging into your Pinterest account and using any one of these three methods:

  • Click the Invite Now button in the top-right corner of the Pinterest home page.

    Invite Friends button on Pinterest.
    Invite Friends button on Pinterest.
  • Mouse over your name in the top-right corner of the Pinterest home page and choose the Invite Friends option from the drop-down menu.

  • Mouse over your name in the top-right corner of the Pinterest home page and choose Find Friends from the drop-down menu.

If you do one of the first two methods, a new screen will appear in which you can insert the email addresses of people you want to invite, plus add a personal message to the invitation.


You can also connect to friends on Facebook or select people from your G-mail contacts (if you have a G-mail account) by choosing one of the options on the left.

The third method — choosing Find Friends — does the same thing as selecting Facebook on the left and clicking the Find Friends from Facebook Button, namely, a new page appears listing Facebook friends you can invite and listing your Facebook friends who are already using Pinterest. From here, you can click the red Invite Friends button on the left side to invite all your Facebook friends to Pinterest, or you can click the Invite button next to individual names to hand-pick which friends you invite.

If some of your Facebook friends are already on Pinterest, this screen also gives you the option to follow their Pinterest pinnings.
