This Itechguide teaches you how to post a PDF on Facebook.

There are 3 places you can share a post on Facebook. 1, on your personal Facebook News Feed. 2, on a Facebook Page. 3, on a Facebook group.

Out of this 3, you can only post a PDF to a post you share in a Facebook group. But in this Itechguide, I share a way to post a PDF on Facebook Page and a personal News Feed.

In the first part of this Itechguide, I share how you can post a PDF to a post on your News Feed or a Facebook Page. The second part covers how to share a PDF to a post on a Facebook Group.

How to Post a PDF on Facebook Page

When you post on your Facebook News Feed or a Facebook Page, there is no option to upload a file. The walk around is to post your PDF as a link.

Therefore, this section is divided into 2 sub-sections: 1, Upload your PDF to Google Drive. 2, post the link on a Facebook post.

Upload your PDF to Google Drive

  • Open Drive.Google.com and login with your Google Account. If you do not have a Google Account, click this link to create one – https://accounts.google.com.
  • Then on the top left of Google Drive, click the + sign beside New.
