How to Post a PDF on Facebook

Facebook allows user to attach and upload PDF files to business pages and groups, not including your personal profile page. However, you still have 3 ways to share the content of PDF files with your friends.

  • Convert single page PDF to image.
  • Upload PDF to file sharing sites and share the url on Facebook
  • Convert PDF to online flipbook

For PDFs like single-page posters or forms, convert them to images and post them on Facebook. You can convert PDFs to images for free using the Preciew app for Mac or the PDF to JPG app for Windows. The easiest way is to open the PDF and take a screenshot. This works best for PDFs that are only a single page, but if you need to convert a multipage PDF, you should turn each page into its own separate image.
