Reasons why you are unable to share a post on the Facebook app

Below are the reasons why you may be having trouble sharing posts on the Facebook app.

Verify your privacy settings

You won’t be able to share posts if your privacy settings is set to Friends only.

You should check the icon for the friends you wish to share it with.

Problems with the app

There are times when you won’t be able to share or the post you shared won’t be shown due to a bug with the app.

You should start by checking Facebook on the web browser version.

Confirm communication environment

You may not be able to share posts under poor network connections.

Even if you were able to share, it may not be reflected.

You should also check the data consumption from your carrier.

Problems with Facebook

There are also times when you won’t be able to share due to issues with Facebook itself.

There is a chance that the problem is caused by Facebook itself if the timeline doesn’t update or if you receive no notifications.

What you should do when you are unable to share posts on the Facebook app

Below are the solutions for when you can’t share posts on the Facebook app.

Verify your privacy settings

You won’t be able to share the post if your friend has limited the audience of the post to just friends.

If such is the case you should give up as it is your friend’s decision. Trying to forcefully share the post may be considered a nuisance so be careful.

Problems with the app

This is common immediately after app updates.

If you were able to share on the web browser version, then the problem lies with the app.

Even if you share it, it may not show or you may not receive any notifications from it, or the sharing may have failed.

You should contact the customer support service if the problem persists even after rebooting or reinstalling the app.

Confirm communication environment

Poor network environments can affect the sharing so you should try sharing in a place where the communication environment is good.

It may be that your carrier has restricted your data usage, but this problem can be resolved by switching to a WiFi connection.

There is a possibility that the share has worked and that you’re just not seeing it, so you should try restarting the app once you’ve switched to a WiFi connection.

Problems with Facebook

There are times when Facebook itself is the cause of the problem due to excessive traffic and such.

Facebook is likely to be the cause of the problem if you’re also having trouble updating your timeline or posting content as well as sharing posts.

You should let some time pass before trying to share again.

If the problem persists, you’ll have to wait for Facebook to fix the problem.

Summary

  • Verification of visibility settings
  • Problems with the app
  • Check your network environment
  • Problems with Facebook

In this article we looked at the causes and solutions to the problem of not being able to share posts on the Facebook app.

The main cause for problems with sharing is the privacy setting of owner of the post.

You’ll have trouble sharing the post if its audience is limited to just friends.

You can also adjust the settings for your own posts and enable or disable the share function.

I hope the article was of use to all Facebook app users.
