How to Post On Facebook


Let's take a moment to review some basics on how to share a post on Facebook.  Back when you first started with Facebook you may have jumped in and started using it without ever having someone walk you through step by step the options and settings.  Let's take a closer look together on the process to post and share on FB.  

Your timeline is where you can see your posts or posts you've been tagged in displayed by date. Your timeline is also part of your profile. You can post to your timeline either from the top of your timeline or from News Feed and your followers will see what you post in their timeline feed.

Quick Version

1. From the top of your timeline or News Feed, click what type of post you want to share (ex:  Status,  Photo/Video).
