Sharing posts to Facebook is a great way to reach a wider audience and connect with friends and colleagues. With EveryoneSocial, you can share posts directly to Facebook, whether the post is from your team or shared directly from you. In this article, we’ll go over how you can share to Facebook and the available options to make the most of your sharing experience.

🔹 This is available on all plans.

🔸 This is accessible to all roles and permission levels.

What to know

Before you share to Facebook, there are a few things to know.

  • Facebook only accepts link posts and text posts. Images and video posts will not be accepted.
  • The scheduling tool can not be used to schedule content. You must share posts immediately.
  • Custom images will not be accepted for link posts. If you upload an image to override a link’s preview image, it will not be shareable to Facebook.
  • Facebook does not release engagement data. Admins will only see the times someone shares a post to Facebook.
