New Nook devices will come preloaded with the social media app as well as with Twitter and a new Facebook app.

Barnes & Noble (BKS) is diving further into social media with a new Pinterest app for its Nook Media devices.

The company said in a press release today that the Pinterest app is now available for download on the Nook HD, Nook HD+, Nook Tablet, and Nook Color.
