Step 1: Getting the Facebook page sharing error

It was previously possible to share a post using the Facebook sharing popup options to post on a business page instead of posting on your personal account, by using the Share on a page you manage option from a Facebook sharing popup.

This option is one of the many sharing options:

  • Share to news feed or story
  • Share on a friend's timeline
  • Share in a group
  • Share in an event
  • Share on a page you manage - will not work if you haven't selected the right profile

This error can be confusing, however it can easily be solved with following steps. It simply means that you are currently browsing Facebook under your personal profile, and not under the corresponding business page profile on which you are trying to create a new post.

Step 2: Switch Facebook profile

Open a new window and reach the Facebook site. From there, click on the arrow in the top right corner of the page.

You will then be able to access a button Switch profile or account, behind your main profile access link and the feedback button.

From the switch profile menu, you should be able to see both your personal profile and the business page profile - you might have several of them, and you should select the business account under which you want to create a new post.

By simply clicking on the corresponding button, the page will reload itself and you will be logged in as your business page profile.

Step 3: Reload the sharing page

Once the profile has been switched from personal to business profile, simply reload the Facebook sharing window. You will now have the possibility to create a new post directly under your business profile.

The sharing options will be limited to a few less than with a personal account:

  • Share to news feed or story
  • Share in a group
  • Share in an event

However, you can go on with the first option to simple share to news feed, and a new post will be published under your business account on your business page.
