Readers: This post has been updated to reflect Facebook’s most recent changes.
You can Share Facebook updates, links, videos, and photos from your personal timeline to any brand/fan page you administer. You can also share to Facebook Groups, on a friend’s timeline, and in a private message.
- Log in to your Facebook personal timeline.
- Click the “Home” button (upper righthand corner of your screen)
- In your News Feed, you’ll see other people’s updates.
- Look for the “Share” link below each update.
- Click “Share.”
A pop-up box will appear, and you can choose from five sharing options:
- On your own timeline
- On a friend’s timeline
- In a group
- On a page you manage
- In a private Message
For Admins of Multiple Pages
I administer multiple Facebook pages, and when I tried to Share “On Your Page,” it defaulted to the Page that’s first on the list of pages I admin.
To force Facebook to Share to a different Page, select the correct Page from a second menu that will pop up after you choose “On your Page.”
Whether you choose to share to your brand Page, to a friend’s timeline, or to a Group, etc. you can (and should) “write something” – in other words, explain why you’re sharing the update, before you click the “Share” button.
If you decide not to share the link/update/photo/video, you can always “Cancel.”
