Question How to make my Facebook posts shareable?
I have been posting photos to a facebook gardening group and people keep asking me to make my photos shareable... but nobody tells me how to do that.

I don't know how to make a photo in a group sharable.
But
the person who wants to share, can click on the photo. then save it to their own photos. or share.

that's the best I know how, not too savvy.

when you post there is a date and time on your post = next to it is a symbol, earth, people or a lock,
earth is public people is friends lock is just you.... pick from the drop down list who you want to see your pictures, public, friend or just you.... Public would make it shareable, but only do this if you really want everyone to be able to share your photos, I don't usually do public with pics of my kids or grandkids...hope this helps.

You wouldn't be able to share a photo from a group, unless it is a public group. Is your group public?

Well, the page says "closed group" right under the group name, so I guess there is no way to share photos on that page.

No, you can't share it. If you look below the photo, there isn't a share option.

correct - that is one of the "perks" of having "groups" and by it being a "closed" group - it is even more "secret"/"secure".

What is posted in a closed group is not meant to be shared outside of that group.
Now - if you own the rights to the picture - you can post it on your own facebook page as a public post and then share the link to it that way.
