Tips on Sharing Facebook Posts & Twitter Tweets
Posted on May 15th, 2012 by craigconnects
Hey, I figure that sometimes people doing good stuff want me to spread the updates to my networks in social media, starting with Facebook and Twitter.
I tell 'em to email me the links to their posts, and maybe they should do so for all their supporters. Just send us the links with a few words as to what they're talking about.
That means we can click on those links, and that brings up their posts in a browser. From there, we just click on Share or Retweet. Just two clicks, and the original post is sent throughout our networks.
Here's how to send the link to a specific post:
If you post something to Facebook (I have highlighted the screenshots in orange for the purposes of this blog post):
And want to share that post by way of linking to it directly (vs. clicking the "Share" button), you can click on the grey time stamp that is located on the post (highlighted in orange below):
and once you click on that, it will take the post to a new window. In this window, you can either copy and paste the URL in the address bar, or right click the time stamp and click "Copy Link Location" from the drop-down menu, and then paste it wherever you'd like:
Copy and paste the link anywhere you want now: Email, blog posts, Pinterest, etc.
You post a tweet to your profile page and then you click on the tweet from your profile page, click on "Expand":
then click on "Details" which is next to the time stamp in grey:
and it will take you to the individual tweet which you can then either copy and paste the direct link from the URL (see below), or you can right click the text that says "Embed This Tweet", and there's an option to "Copy Link Location" in the drop-down menu. Both work, so it depends on your preference.
There you go, folks. Now you can share your posts across all networks.
