Quite often I see questions about how to upload or share PDF files on Facebook. Right now, Facebook does not sustain direct uploading of PDF data, but they do sustain linking to existing content. So, utilizing this strategy you can share all your PDF content-- from annual reports to types.
Connecting to existing web content requires that your PDF documents stays somewhere that is openly obtainable-- like Dropbox or Google Drive. Given that I do so much operate in Acrobat, I'm mosting likely to utilize the Acrobat.com cloud solution, which is straight integrated with Acrobat and Adobe Reader. This cloud-based service is particularly beneficial since your PDF files can be accessed from any type of computer or mobile phone, which is ideal for Facebook. If you don't have Acrobat or Reader mounted on your system, you can likewise create your very own free account on Acrobat.com as well as accessibility it utilizing your web internet browser.
First, I'll post my PDF data to Acrobat.com. You can either do this by pointing your internet browser to files.acrobat.com as well as finalizing in. Or, from within Acrobat or Viewers by clicking on the cloud symbol in the toolbar, which will certainly publish your PDF documents to Acrobat.com. I'll make use of the cloud symbol from within Acrobat.
Next, open your internet browser and also navigate to files.acrobat.com and also check in if you have not currently. Inspect the box alongside your PDF documents as well as click the Send out File icon.
Under Send To inspect the general public Web link box and click the Develop Link switch.
As soon as the public link is produced select the text in the web link and also copy it as well as click Close.
Open your Facebook web page and also paste the link right into a condition update (don't struck Blog post yet).
The long URL has a lot gobbledygook in it so proceed and remove it by highlighting the link and striking the remove secret. Next tailor the common link title by floating over the Shared Files-- Acrobat.com message up until it highlights in yellow and after that click on it to alter it to something extra meaningful.
