Facebook Video Chat Device Portal

So far Pin a Post feature was available exclusively for Facebook Groups and Pages and we don’t have such a feature for our Facebook Personal Profile. However, the company has now added the same feature in Profile also.

So, in addition to Groups and Pages, we can now Pin a Post on Facebook Personal Profile. Well, those of you who still haven’t aware with the Pin a Post feature, it let you to manually select any post from your timeline and stick it to the top of your timeline.

Just like Groups and Pages, you can find the Pin a Post feature in the menu of all the posts. See the screenshot below to get the idea of the same.

As soon as you find this option, click, or tap on its to stick the specific post at the top of your profile page timeline.

On Facebook, In my test, you can Pin a maximum of one post at the top, however, in Instagram the limit for the same is three.

What is the Importance of Pinning a Post at the Top?

Pinning a post at the top is used for only one purpose. To present the visitor the most important thing to see at first. For example, the announcement of any important event.

  1. Nope! BS!! This can’t be done.. That option isn’t available on my personal wall. Only works in groups and pages.. Maybe it’s not available to everyone yet?

  2. For some reason, I can’t find this option in Desktop, IOS and Android apps. But I’m seeing a friend who has a pinned post on his personal FB profile. Any ideas?

    1. Hi Alvin,

      Thanks for commenting.

      I am seeing both the pin and unpin option for posts in both of my Facebook Desktop and Android App.

      Make sure you have updated your app.

      Also, can I ask the name of the country where you are accessing this option?

      Thanks 🙂

      1. No, that’s not the case because I’ve updated my app too and I don’t have this pin a post option yet either on my personal Facebook both on desktop and mobile on apple devices. Have they not rolled it out to everybody?

  3. I used to be able to pin to my personal page, but now I can’t do it. I tried it on my phone, iPad, and laptop.

      1. I was able to pin post to my personal Facebook timeline a months ago. Now I can’t even see the option anymore except for my business page. Does the Meta update have to do anything with this? I’m based in Canada…

  4. I still don’t have this option on my personal page to pin posts when I post them. Is this a delayed roll out that’s taking place over months, or only to a small % of Facebook users?

  5. I’d like to know the same answer. I don’t have this option either yet on my personal page on desktop or mobile. I’m in the US and using apple devices. But I’m seeing a colleague has a pinned post on her personal page somehow so others have it. How do we get this feature on our personal account?

  6. No pin here either. I suspect the author has a business type page, or has created pages in their profile.

  7. On my personal profile, only one post is showing me the option to pin it, out of the last month. Why can I post some things to the top of the my profile page and not others?

  8. “Pin Post” is NOT available on all posts in my timeline. The option is offered randomly, without pattern. Some videos offer the option, some don’t. Some pictures, with a long foreword offer the option, another one exactly like it, does not. Some memes posted offer the option, others don’t. I can find no pattern, rhyme or reason, for “Pin Post” option availability. And, it doesn’t even have to do with whither or not I have a post already “Pinned.”
    Of course, I am aware that the Face Book Censor Patrol despises me, because I love America, I’m a white male and a Christian, even though I’m not racist, homophobic, ..etc. I realize they would like to frustrate me in any way; so, maybe this is the reason for this anomaly. I’m certain they could know how long I worked on this particular post. Maybe it has to be up for a while, before they will give me the option to “Pin Post.”
    I would NOT dare let them know what I wanted most of all, because I’m certain they would deprive me, just for kicks.
    Thank you, for the read. I wish you a blessed day.
