How to get the URL or Link of a Facebook post or status

Share this article

Sometimes you may need to provide the URL/link of a Facebook post or status for eg. in case you are trying to win a contest or trying to attract more people to a Facebook post. Though Facebook has recently added a “Share” option for all the Facebook post but it still doesn’t serve the purpose in the case you need the to share the Post in a comment or outside Facebook environment. In this post I’ll show you how to get the URL of a Facebook post.

All you have to do is to go to post and click on the “Date-Time” of the post. Something like this:

Clicking on this “Date-Time” element will take you to the post in a new tab. And from there you can simply copy past the URL of the post. Something like this:

Now you can share the post anywhere with the help of the URL. By the way the same method can be used in Google Plus as well.
