How to Remove the Share Button from Your Facebook Posts

Sharing is perhaps one of the Facebook’s most basic, and popular, features. Sharing allows your friends to share your posts with their friends, all with the simple click of a button.

While you might want your friends and family to see your posts, you might not want them sharing your posts with others. Sometimes, you might even want to post something to Facebook without sharing it with anyone.

Thankfully, you can adjust your privacy settings to remove the share button from your posts on Facebook. In this article, we’ll show you how in both the Android / iOS mobile and and via the Facebook website on your PC.
