Video: How To Share PDF files on Social Media Sites- Facebook and Twitter
Have you ever wondered how to share PDF files with your contacts perhaps a pricelist that you'd like to upload to Facebook. Well this is how you do it. Here’s a PDF file advertising my new betterKNOWhow webinars that I've actually uploaded to a free service called Dropbox Here’s my Dropbox account. So just going to dropbox.com and you can set up an account and you can store up to 2 GB of data I've already uploaded that PDF file you can see it there so I'm going to click the link on the right hand side and a very long URL appears in the browser. You can use control C to copy it and I could just use that link on social media sites or e-mail it to other people.
What I like to do like to take an extra step and shorten that URL using another service called bit.ly and when you shorten the URL with bit.ly you can actually customise the link as well and track people who have clicked on links That’s why I choose that extra step using bit.ly. Go to bit.ly and paste the link using control and V. Take the shortened link here but if you click the edit button you can literally type in the words you want in the link. Post the customised link on LinkedIN. Share with your other social media sites.
