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.”
Depending on the post’s privacy settings, you may see the following options:
- Share Now. The post will be shared to your News Feed and timeline with your current privacy settings.
- Send as Message. Type the name of the friend you want to send a private message to, then tap Send.
- Share in a Group. …
- Share to a Page.
The definition of what a Facebook share like is. A facebook share is when you click the share button to share a piece of content on Facebook. … Once it’s published there, that user’s friends will then be shown the shared content when they view Facebook’s home page and when they view that user’s profile page.
When you share someone else’s post, that post isn’t placed on your own Timeline. Instead, your share is merely a “pointer” to the original post. In other words, when you share someone’s post you’re basically telling your Facebook friends that you like that post and they should check it out.
How To Automate Facebook Posts Natively On Facebook

- Select the second option “Schedule”
- Select the date and time you want your post to publish.
- Select “Schedule”
Facebook is removing the share option for everyone. It is being rolled out slowly. Despite setting it to public, it will not appear anymore.
If no ‘Share’ button appears on a post – it is because of the Privacy Settings of the original post. If a post is set for ‘Friends Only’ (perhaps this is your Default Timeline setting) – it will not be available for ‘Sharing’ around on Facebook beyond that setting.
You will have to change the privacy of your posts to make them shareable. Posts set to public can be shared by everyone.
You have always been able to hide posts from your Facebook page after the fact, but now Facebook lets you post to the News Feed without the items ever touching your Timeline. … When sharing, you still have the same options to share to your own Timeline, a friend’s Timeline or in a group or event.
If you click Share on a friend’s post, the friend who originally shared it is given a credit. So if you reshare an article, the post that your friends see will say Via [Friend’s Name] so that everyone knows where you found it.

If you want to share a post you see on your News Feed with a single friend, you can click “Share” below the post and select “Send as Message”, which sends the post directly to your friend in a private message.
