How to get the permalink for a Facebook post

I often get asked “How do you find the direct link (aka permalink) of a Facebook post?”. It is fairly straightforward and you can do this for any page or timeline post.

Here are the four steps to finding the permalink for a Facebook post:

  4. Now you can copy and paste the permalink as you please!
