Here's How to Share a Facebook Post

Our guide explains the many different ways you can share a Facebook post

Did you know that you have multiple options when it comes to sharing the Facebook posts you see in your News Feed? From sharing a post directly to your own News Feed to doing so outside of the Facebook application itself, our guide breaks down your many options.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Facebook app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap “Share” on the post you’d like to share.

From here, you have multiple options:

Option 1: If you want to quickly share the post to your own timeline, select “Share Now.”

Option 2: If you want to add your own comment to a post before sharing it, select “Write Post.”

In addition to writing your own comment, you can also tap “Tap to Change” at the top of the screen to change where you’ll share the post (your personal News Feed, a group or a page).
