How To Share a Facebook Page

So, let’s file this under the category of, “everyone is doing it, so I had better figure out how to do it too.” 

how to share a Facebook page

Sharing a favorite “page” that you follow on Facebook is becoming the new “thing” in blogging and although I just figured out how to share pages recently myself, I’m a whiz at it now, and since I see people sharing it the “old” way, I figured, why not enlighten everyone’s lives today and show you how to share a Facebook Page on Facebook!

To share a page you love right now and publish it to Facebook, here’s how:

1. FIRST, go to that person’s Facebook page.

2.   Next to the “Message” tab, there are three circles.  Click those.

 

3.  Choose to “Share”.

6.  Click Share Page to send that post on its way.

Here is the final outcome, in my NewsFeed.

Want to SCHEDULE your Facebook page share for tomorrow {or any other day?}

  1. Well, this is so cool! I’m going to try it out!

    It didn’t show in the pictures or tutorial, but can the share be scheduled too?

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Here’s my Facebook page:

    I’m going to share this post tomorrow on my Facebook. I never knew about this way of sharing… so thanks for the enlightenment! I have a blog hop every Thursday, I would love it if you could pop by and link up this post. It’s a no pressure hop – just an opportunity to let your best posts SHINE! #SHINEbloghop

    Thanks again!

  2. This is really interesting, I do have a question though. Why delete the url when scheduling a share? Is there some reason not to? Thanks for the info! Sharing on my FB page, designerssweetspot.

  3. Hmmmm. I often share posts but never entire pages. So I tried what you suggested. I looked at several friends personal FB pages just to get a feel for it. The dots to the right only have the drop down as: Give Gift, See Friendship, Poke, Report, Block. I tried to import a screen shot here but couldn’t . But that’s it. No share. Can you explain?

  4. Hi Melanie! Thanks for the tutorial! I can’t find the thread on Facebook but when I try to share a page….it gives me the option to “Share on a Page I Manage” and it lets me hit Made to be a Momma…but it doesn’t change the Posting as this Page….it keeps it as Posting as this person or whatever so it’s always Me ( Katie Wyllie sharing it to my blog page) any tips?

  5. Ok, you just rocked my world! I realize this is not a brand new post, but someone referred me to it, and while I had figured out the sharing, I had no idea about the scheduling. Thank you!!! I’m new to the whole blogging thing and just trying to figure things out… 🙂
