Link to a Facebook Page Status Update – How?

There’s a particular Facebook status update you want to share with a friend, colleague or customers. Maybe you want to email a link to a really well-performing update to show your manager or co-workers what kinds of updates are getting a great response. Maybe you want to send an email campaign to customers, directing them to a video you posted on your Facebook Page.  But, you’ve looked those updates up and down and can’t find a link anywhere, and you don’t want to send a link to the page and tell them what date to look for. Usually, they won’t! So,

How Can I Link to a Facebook Page Status Update?

find the link to a facebook status update printscreenIt’s simple, but not obvious! On any page or on your newsfeed, hover over the time posted.

It’s in grey, either (on a timeline) right below the name of the poster, to the left of the “privacy status” indicator (the tiny globe) or, in your newsfeed it’s to the right of the like, comment, and share buttons.

Then just right click and copy the URL, or click on it to follow through directly to the post.

You can use the same method to share a personal Facebook Profile update – but remember that privacy settings prevail. So, if you are trying to share something from a friend and they chose to allow it to be seen only by friends, sending it to someone not their friend will not allow them to see the update – they’ll get a “content unavailable” error.

Link to a Specific Facebook Status Update – Option Two

The URL will show up at the bottom of the screen. Simply right click and copy the URL, or click on it to follow through directly to the post.

Now you can share a link directly to that update with anyone you like!
