Have you ever asked the question Why can’t people share my posts on Facebook? or How do I turn on the share button on Facebook?
In this short but descriptive article, I will show you how to make a Facebook post shareable.
If you have been using Facebook for a long time, you would notice that some posts are shareable while others aren’t.
If you have ever tried to share someone’s post on Facebook but can’t seem to see the share button anywhere, I have the answer.
The reason is because of “privacy settings”
Facebook takes privacy very seriously.
Facebook has a feature called privacy settings, if the original poster did not make his or her video public in the privacy settings pane, you will not be able to share his or her video on your Facebook timeline.
Now, time to show you how to enable the share button on Facebook.
