Facebook helps you keep in touch with friends, family and business partners. If you come across an interesting article on the Internet, you may want to share that link with your Facebook friends. You don't need to know any HTML to embed a link in a Facebook comment. You can use the comment box to share your find in an instant without any programming knowledge at all.

Step 1

Sign into your Facebook account.

Step 2

Navigate to the place where you would like to leave a comment, then cut and paste the URL into the comment box. The URL will show as text.

Press "Enter." The comment will post and the URL will be turned into a hyperlink.


  • URLs will show up as plain text until you press "Enter," unlike text placed in the "Whats on your mind" box, which will show up as a detailed link before you press "Enter."
