How to Post Links on Facebook

By Jacqui Lane

Posting a link on Facebook is a great way to share content with a large number of people at once. With one click, you can spark discussion on a hot topic, share something funny with friends or simply post links to products and content that you find interesting.

Step 1

Click the status update box at the top of your News Feed and type or paste the URL you want to share.

Step 2

Click the arrow icon in the corner of the image preview to select the image you want to accompany your post, if this option is available. You can also enter a message to accompany your link, select the audience with whom you'd like to share it or tag specific friends at this time.

Step 3

Click "Post" to share the link on your Facebook Timeline.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can also share articles directly from the publication's website if the publisher has the Facebook Share, Like or Recommend option enabled.
