Quickies: How to Share the URL of a Specific Social Media Post


By Tess | 19th Jan 2016 | Posted in Quickies

We’ve created a series of bite-sized blog posts just long enough to give you the downlow on all kinds of digital wizardry, because we love sharing our knowledge and know-how. Get tips for improving your social media efforts, discover powerful PR tricks, and learn all kinds of hacks to make your work life easier. Here is our super quick tip of the week.

What?

If you want to share a specific post from a social media network with someone, make sure you share exactly the right content (not the whole news feed or profile page) with these tips. Whether it’s a post on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram, the method is the same.

Why?

Sending a link to a specific post in this way sends the user directly to the correct post. This allows you to share a post from a social network with someone by email or text/instant message, or even to a different social network.

How?

Regardless of which social media network the post you want to share with someone is on, the trick to sharing it is the same! Follow these simple steps:

  • Have the social media post in front of you
  • Locate the timestamp on the post (the bit telling you when the status was posted)
  • Click on the timestamp
  • A full screen version of the post should now have opened, with it’s own URL
  • You can now copy the URL, and paste it where needed for a link direct to that post
