What does it mean to pin a post on Facebook? A pinned post is a status update that you manually select to stay at the top of your page’s timeline, meaning it will not slip down as you continue to add other posts to your page. Let’s explore how to do this.
This is for devices running Facebook
You can only have one post pinned to your profile at a time. If you try to pin a second post, that second post gets pinned and the first post gets unpinned.
Pin to Your Profile
First, launch a web browser on your computer and access the Facebook site. Next, log in to your account and in the top right-hand corner of the site, click your profile icon. Refer to below image:
Now, on your profile page that opens, find the post you want to pin. At the top right-hand corner of the post, click the three dots menu. See below image:
Next, from the three-dots menu, select Pin post. See following image:
And immediately, Facebook will pin the selected post to the top of your profile page. Scroll up your profile and your pinned post will appear there. Refer to below image:
To unpin a pinned post, from the top right-hand corner of the pinned post, select the three dots menu and click Unpin post in the menu. See below image:
Facebook will remove the post from the top of your profile page. It will continue to appear at its original location in your profile, though. Now, refresh the page or exit Facebook.
