Use the shortlink -

  • What if I want to share a link to a specific comment? Doesn't look like there are short links for comments as well. Anyone knows a work around?

  • Yes. There is a work-around. Click share and select "Copy Link". Then before this link, add 2fb.me

This is mostly handled by Facebook itself and there is not much you can do to fix this. What I would suggest is copying in the title and then putting some colon, and then add the link. For example:

Check this post out:How do you share a Reddit link onto Facebook while preserving the original title, with as little friction as possible? (http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/t4d6d/how_do_you_share_a_reddit_link_onto_facebook/)

If you don't want the link to be so long you can use some url shortener such as:



I would recommend the Buffer plugin. It is a plugin designed to help you stuff all of your social media posts on the Buffer app and then send them out at pre-selected times or just buffer them for later- so you don't tweet eightTEEN things at 4am.

The link to Buffer on Reddit shows up on the same bar as the other Reddit interaction links:

buffer plugin on reddit

It will generate the following popup which is the same for every buffer link:

buffer popup on reddit

And then you can click Share Now to post it immediately or Buffer to send it later.

I am pretty sure there are other browser plugins that accomplish the same thing, but the integration with Buffer is decidedly frictionless.


Use the to Facebook web app.


put the reddit link in full after https://2fb.me/
