How to Share a Post
In this video, you’ll learn how to share a Facebook page post or a Facebook weblink.
Facebook gives you the ability to share posts from other pages with your friends and personal pages.
In this example, we’ll show you how to share a post from our Learn How page. You can use these same steps to share any post.
You’ll notice that on every post, there are three options to click on: Like, Comment, or Share.
Tapping the “thumbs up” is a Like. It’s a great way to show the person who posted the content that you enjoyed it.
If you tap Comment, you can type in a personal comment about the post.
The option on the right is Share. Tap Share to see more options.
“Share Now (Public)” will instantly share the post on your personal timeline. This way, all of your Facebook friends will also be able to see the post even if they don’t follow our page.
“Write Post” allows you to type a personal message which will appear above the post on your personal timeline.
If you have created a Facebook page for a hobby or business, you can also share the post on one of your pages. Just tap the text at the top of the screen and choose the page you want to share the post on.
Let’s go back to the sharing options.
“Send in Messenger” allows you to send the post in a private message to friends of your choosing. If you’re on your phone, the messenger app will open and you can select friends from a list.
“Share to a Page” is similar to what we showed before. This option will look very similar to the “Write Post” sharing option. One of your Facebook pages will automatically be selected, but you can change it by clicking the text at the top of the screen.
The last sharing option is “Copy Link”. If you click this, the link to the post on facebook.com will be copied to your “clipboard” which you can use to paste anywhere you want.
Sharing posts from pages you follow is a great way to introduce the page to your friends. It’s also a great way to spread awareness and let other people enjoy the post. If you like our posts, or posts from other pages you follow, share it with your friends!
Thanks for watching!
