Sharing posts from your Facebook profile to your business Page can be a good strategy, but be careful what you choose to share. An admin should keep the Page’s settings and roles updated, including which roles can post to your Page, and whether or not to allow visitors to post to your Page. If you created a Facebook page, you are automatically the admin of that page. It’s always a good idea to have a backup admin, and that person should be someone you trust.
You can assign different Page roles to those who need different levels of access. The admin role is the highest level possible and can change anything, including adding other people to manage the page. The admin role can also remove people, including another admin, so be careful to whom this role is assigned.
Depending on your Page’s settings, visitors to your page (i.e., ANYONE) may be allowed to post to your Page. If you or your team aren’t paying attention, a visitor could post something wonderful or not-so-wonderful, including spam, something that markets a competitor, or something you/your Page may not want to support.

So HOW do we share a post on our Page?
Using a desktop or laptop (I use Windows 11 – I’m not sure about Apple but I will find out, stay tuned!), from your personal profile:
- Click the Share link under the image.
- Click the next Share To A Page link.
- Click on the Page you want.
- Facebook will ask you to Switch Profiles into the Business Page. Click the blue SWITCH button.
- Share that post on the selected Page with your thoughts! You can tag another Page (if it’s appropriate), add hashtags and a location — just click the blue SHARE button when you’re ready. You can also just click the blue SHARE button to add the post to the Page without your thoughts.
- Click on your Page’s avatar in the upper right-hand corner and click on your profile to go to your Home page — you should see your post!
