The good thing about the built in browser is that you can get the full FB experience. Hence, you would definitely be able to post articles from websites as you would do on the desktop. Since, I do not use 9gag/Pintrest, I cannot comment on that, but presumably you can since the browser is desktop class.
The same cannot be said about the FB app. Currently, there is no invocation framework on the PB, which, if I understand correctly if a more sophisticated version of the deep integration between apps we have on BBOS. So the only way to post would be to copy the URL and post it as a status update on the FB app, which looks terrible because all you see is a URL address and not the fancy rendering with thumbnails like on the desktop or iOS/Android apps. Also there is no Pinterest app on the PB. If you are okay with the above limitations, you do not need to sideload.
The only reason I have sideloaded FB, Twitter and LinkedIn is because I have a lot of Android apps and this way all the apps are linked together.
I would suggest you sideload and give it a try. If it works, great, if not, you can always remove the apps.
There is a website that allows you to change Android apk to BAR, but I am not sure I can post the link here. Can anyone verify?
