I just finished my enquiry to college in Google Drive and now I can't send it via Facebook.

I click "share" and then "Facebook" and it opens a window in it. I select my friends from Facebook and that gives me the answer "The message could not be posted to this Wall." Even when I try to send it in a private message this happens.

Can anybody help me figure out how to do this?

Most users will need a Google account (not Gmail), to access drive files.

The files must be shared explicitly with them, or shared public. Then the file’s (or folder’s) URL can be posted to a message in Facebook. I've run into problems when users didn't have Google accounts. I've never tried sharing directly to Facebook, just posted a properly shared Drive folder/file.
