So, you want to point your friends on facebook to a specific post but you can’t find a way to share that post with them via a button or link in the vicinity of that post. Or, perhaps you are taking part in a contest on a company’s facebook page or group and you want to deliver maximum likes or comments on a certain post of you there. Then you would certainly want yourself to be able to give your friends the exact URL of that post. Unfortunately, I don’t find any clearly available option to get such a permalink for any post on facebook. Whenever you get a notification about a new comment or like on a post you are subscribed to and you click on that notification then that is the permalink that I always wished I could get without going through the notifications.
Luckily, I found the following hidden trick to get it!
The permalink of any post on facebook is hidden under its time stamp.
To get the permalink of any post, click on its time stamp reading “x hours ago”, “x seconds ago”, “a few minutes ago” etc. depending on the time passed since that post has been posted as shown in the following screen shot.
As soon as, you click on the time stamp of a post, you will get to a new page containing only that post. At this point, you can copy your required permalink from the address bar of your browser.
