How to Make a Facebook Post Shareable Easily

The sharing feature of Facebook is a great way to spread the news to people aware of certain things, encourage other people, or even ask for donations. Instead of reposting, a user can share the posts from the original source.

If you are getting messages or comments from your Facebook friends that they are not able to share your Facebook post, then it is time to make changes to your privacy settings.

Remember, this change would control the privacy of your future posts too. This means if you change the privacy from “Friends” to “Public”, the next posts will automatically be visible to all the public.

Changing the audience settings is not a big deal. Read on to know the easiest way of how to make a Facebook post shareable on mobile and desktop.
