Steps to Make Your Post Shareable

  1. Click on ‘What’s on your mind’ section at the top of your profile or feed page.
  2. Enter your content and get it ready to share.
  3. Before you click on Share, you have to select privacy. 
  4. You can find the privacy settings of your post under your name. There is a box that says ‘Public’ or ‘Friends.’
  5. Click on the box and select who can view your post.
  6. Set your default settings and select ‘Public’ to make your post shareable. If the adjustment was already showing ‘Public,’ then your posts should already be shareable. 

Now that you have selected ‘Public,’ every one will see and share your post. For your future posts, you can adjust the privacy from the Settings in your profile. To do that, follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the drop-down arrow in the header.
  2. Click on ‘Settings & Privacy.’
  3. Then click on ‘Settings.’
  4. Now click on ‘Privacy’ from the menu on the left.

  2. Then, under your username, you will see two buttons that say ‘Friends or Public’ and ‘Album.’
  3. If the first button contains the ‘Public’ text, your post would already be shareable. Yet, if it isn’t, make it shareable by switching it to ‘Public.’

Now that you have learned how to make your posts shareable, it is important to know how to make your posts visible. 

If you want your posts to be shared, you probably want them to be seen by as many people as possible. That is why we give you some tips to make your posts more visible.

  • Posting Time

One of the most important things is posting at the right time. If you want to reach as many people as possible, you have to do it when your audience would possibly be on Facebook. 

As for general, this is after 6 or 7 pm on weekdays. Everyone would be at home, and it is most likely the best time to take a look at Facebook.

Another good time for weekdays is noon. When people eat their lunch at work, they try to relax before turning back to work. 

Saturday night is not a good time for posting for weekends because most people usually have a plan for Saturday nights. Sunday morning wouldn’t be such a good time either. However, all day time except morning time would be good for posting on Sundays.

  • Visibility

When people are scrolling through Facebook, they tend to look at things they are interested in and catch their eye. 

To make your post interesting, you have to add some visual content to make it get noticed. If you’re posting a text, now you can add backgrounds, thanks to Facebook’s update. It helps to add visibility to our posts.

If you can find a photo related to your post, use it. A photo would quickly catch everyone’s eyes, especially if it is about their interest.

  • Keep it Simple
