How to share a user post on a Facebook fan page timeline 2014

August 1, 2014 at 8:17 pm

Recently Facebook updated their fan page layout and moved a few vital features in the process. It’s still possible to share fan posts to your Facebook page but you’ll no longer find this feature in the activity log where it used to be.

To share a fan post on your page timeline just follow these simple instructions:

1. Go to the drop down arrow at the top of Facebook on the right hand side and change to the page you want. (See Fig 1)

2. Scroll down to the ‘posts to page box’ and click the top of this box (See Fig 2)

I’m quite proud of this discovery as when I asked on Social Media Examiner they said it wasn’t possible.
