Facebook share button showing on External Links

Last Updated on December 14, 2020

Earlier we shared an article why Facebook Share button missing on posts shared to only Friends which is a part of privacy control. In this article, we have shared to you why Facebook share button showing on some posts especially on external links.

Facebook restricted posts that are set to be available for friends from being shared by any other person. When someone shares a post set only for friends, according to Facebook the post will only be visible to friends that you are sharing with the owner of the post you shared.
