When you want to share a link with your friends and family on social media, it can be hard to find the right platform.
Some people prefer Facebook because of the ease of sharing links on the news feed, while others may prefer Twitter due to its simple sign-up process and low character count.
LinkedIn is also a great platform for sharing links as there are no character or post length restrictions.
Should you share links on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn? The answer is more complicated than a simple yes or no. In the words of journalist Alexandra Samuel, “sharing a link is like signing a petition that says; ‘I care about this issue’.” In the case of social media, it signals to your followers that you're trying to get someone's attention and make them aware of a problem or a piece of information.
