How to Upload a Word Document to Facebook

To upload a Word document to Facebook, you must use a Facebook application. While Facebook allows users to upload photos and videos to their profiles, users don't have the option to upload other files, such as Word or PDF documents, without first adding a file-sharing application to their accounts. To share a Word document on Facebook, you need to add the DivShare application.
