You can’t share on Facebook – what you can do to fix it

There are a number of reasons why you can’t post on facebook. We have put together a comprehensive guide showing why you are suffering from this problem and what are the solutions to put an end to it.

Did you break Facebook’s rules?

The first point covered in this article relates to the Facebook Rules for posts. There are some behaviors that the social network censors and that result in posting restrictions. Make sure you haven’t done any of the above:

  • You have shared a large number of posts in a short period of time.
  • You have posted content that other users have classified as undesirable.
  • You shared something that violated the Terms of Service.

Facebook will raise the bans on your new posts if you do this. In this case, you have no choice but to wait until the restriction is lifted.

Check internet connection

Another common mistake is that your device’s connections have been disabled. Open the notification curtain and make sure Wi-Fi and mobile data controls are turned on. It is also important that the airplane mode has not been activated. If you find this to be the case, turn it off to continue posting on Facebook.
