What your share on your timeline is generally called a post. Specifically, you share:
- Statuses – how you are feeling, or where you are.
- Posts – text e.g. information about your choir’s next gig;
- Photos – e.g. your choir’s recent performance, your cat looking cute, what you had for dinner;
- Videos – e.g. your choir singing, what your cat was doing to look cute, how you cooked your dinner;
- Links – web pages people might be interested in.
You can choose who you share it with, that is who can see it. You can decide a default “unless I choose differently” option, and change that option for any individual post. Options include “Public”, “Friends only”, “friends except”.
Those who see what you post may react with an emoticon: what Facebook calls Reactions.
- Like (thumbs up)
- Love (a heart)
- Haha (a laughing face)
- Wow (a face with eyebrows raised and eyes and mouth wide open)
- Sad (a face with drooping mouth and a tear from one eye)
- Angry (a face with tight lips, a furrowed brow and red on top)
Others may comment on what you share. As with posts, you can choose who may comment on your posts or who may not comment. I have a separate guide on Facebook Privacy.
