If you are one to post a lot on Facebook, you probably have received comments on your post to “please make this shareable.” In this case, you may need to adjust your privacy settings for your post to allow sharing. Posts that are only visible to friends will not have a share button; a post must be visible to everyone in order to make a Facebook post shareable.
It is also good to mention that these settings are global. This means when you change your settings on one post to public, your next post will also be public by default. You can change the settings of your post by using the audience button on a different post, or you can also go to Facebook’s privacy settings.
