Want to draw your profile viewers’ attention to a specific post on Facebook? You can pin a post to make it always appear at the top of your profile page. We’ll show you how to do it.

You can have only 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. You can pin chats in WhatsApp, too.
