How can I tell who has "shared" my updates on my facebook fanpage? I know that people are doing it but it doesn't show me who or when.

The only way I knew that people shared something was when I just did a random search for "bohemian" in the search box on facebook and it gave me a list of pages or people with that word. However, I stumbled upon one of my posts and it told me who shared it but when I went to that actual post on my wall it didn't show anything.

Is there a spot on facebook that shows you this?

pecking to find out...

I was going to use that app that let you see who looked at your page but then found out from other facebookers that it was a virus...??

Hi ZenHen
Yes I heard that it was a virus too :/

Anyone have any insight on this? I'd like to know if people are sharing so that I can thank them and also at least I know who is showing interest in my posts. As it stands, unless someone "likes" or "comments" I have no idea what is going on with each post.

If you are friends with them it will show up on your wall/news feed

If the person tags you in the post.... saying for instance: Check out @beansthings site! the "@" doesn't show up, but it makes your shop name clickable for those who see the post, and shows up on your fan page...

I don't think you can tell unless you are friends with that specific person, OR if their page is public then a google search would probably turn it up.

I see..okay so basically there is no spot where it saves all the times it was shared or something. I guess if I miss it in the feed it's gone. That's the problem. Meh...okay thanks :)
