How to build a Facebook share button in an email

Follow Provient Marketing on Facebook. This will open in a new tab.


1.  Upload a Facebook logo image file into your email (see image sample at right)

2.    Turn the image into a hyperlink using this code<url>.
Be sure to replace the <url> with the link you want to share.

3.     Here’s a sample using my home page: (Notice I did not include the < > around the link)


At the top of this post, is a sample of my own.  Try it and let me know how it goes.

    How do you get the thumbnail and description to automatically popup when you click share?

      It’s very difficult to troubleshoot without screen shots and a phone conversation.
