Share to Facebook

Sharing posts to Facebook is a great way to reach a wider audience and connect with friends and colleagues. With EveryoneSocial, you can share directly to Facebook. In this article, we’ll go over how to share to Facebook and the available options to make the most of your sharing experience.

🔹 This is available on all plans.

🔸 This is accessible to all roles and permission levels.

What to know

Before you share to Facebook, there are a few things to consider.

  • Facebook only accepts link posts and text posts. Image and video posts will not be accepted.
  • You must share posts immediately. The scheduler can not be used to schedule content.
  • Custom images will not be accepted for link posts. If you upload an image to override a link’s preview image, it will not be shareable to Facebook.
  • Suggested share copy does not apply to Facebook posts. If you want to use suggested share copy, please add the copy to your clipboard before starting the share process. 
  • Facebook does not release engagement data. Admins can only view how many times users shared to Facebook. This is found in Shares Analytics
