This tutorial explains how to automatically post new Pinterest pins to Facebook.
You can use IFTTT (If This Then That) service to automatically and regularly post new Pinterest pins to your Facebook timeline. So, whenever a new pin is added by you on your Pinterest board (public board only), it will also be posted to your Facebook account automatically.
IFTTT service is one of those popular services that connects two different cloud services using its recipes. So, you can connect your Facebook account, add your Pinterest RSS feed with this service, and use any of its recipes to auto post new Pinterest pins to Facebook.
You can also create your own recipe that will trigger the action that if you post a pin to your Pinterest board, then it should also upload automatically to your Facebook account.
In above screenshot, you can see the recipe that I have used to automatically upload Pinterest pins to my Facebook account.
