Facebook share button does not work

    I'm not the Help Desk, just a long-time user. Since the Help Desk is usually not staffed on the weekends, I thought I'd save you having to wait for help because I've seen your issue come up before. I gather that the FB share button hasn't worked for a while. In fact, I got the impression that it was not coming back.

    Here's the thing: I share articles on Facebook fairly often and it's really easy to copy and paste the link to whatever article you want to share. Link = Address.
    Look near the top of the screen, on the left side, and you'll see the address of the article (it should begin with https://).
    Use your mouse to copy that (all of it).
    Then go to Facebook and paste it in wherever you want it. After you've done that and pressed Enter, FB automatically displays the lead in to the article (usually a photo and the title, etc.).
    Try it! You'll like it! You'll get used to doing that and never be dependent on a "share button" again!
    Holler if you need help!
