The Tutorial:

How to find the URL/Link to individual Facebook posts so you can share outside of Facebook (Messages, Email, Slack Groups, etc). It’s easy to share within Facebook, but not as intuitive to share externally.

  2. The solution is really easy so this article will be brief.
  3. There is a 1-minute video tutorial below the text.
