How to Insert a Hotlink Into Facebook


Facebook is the first choice for many people when it comes to sharing photos, videos, websites or blogs with friends and contacts. If you find online content that you want to share with Facebook friends, then you can insert a hotlink to the correct Web address with the Share tool on your Facebook profile page or homepage. This displays the hotlink on your Facebook pages and in the news feed on the homepage of each of your Facebook friends.

  • Open the Web browser on your personal computer and log in to Facebook.

  • Click "Link" from the "Share" menu at the top of your Facebook profile page or homepage.

  • Type the correct Web address into the link field. Alternatively, you can copy a hotlink from the address bar in your Web browser and paste it into the link field.

  • Click the "Attach" button beside the link field.

  • Enter a message to describe the hotlink in the message field.

  • Click the padlock icon. Click your preferred privacy settings for the inserted hotlink from the drop-down menu of privacy options. This controls who can see the inserted hotlink; you can choose to share the link with friends, friends of friends or everyone.

  • Click the "Share" button. This inserts the hotlink into your Facebook pages and news feed.

Tips & Warnings

  • Some websites include a Facebook "Like" or "Recommended" button. Clicking this button on a website automatically adds the hotlink to your Facebook pages.
