To shorten URL links on Facebook, you can follow these steps:

  1. Visit any online URL shortening service like Bitly, TinyURL, or Ow.ly.
  2. Paste the long URL that you want to shorten into the provided text box on the URL shortening website.
  3. Click on the "Shorten" or "Create Short URL" button.
  4. Once the website generates the shortened URL, copy it.
  5. Now, go to your Facebook account and create a new post or comment where you want to add the shortened link.
  6. Paste the copied shortened URL into the post/comment box.
  7. You can also add a description or any additional text if needed.
  8. Finally, click on the "Post" or "Comment" button to share the shortened URL on Facebook.


That's it! The long URL will be replaced by the shortened version in your Facebook post or comment. When someone clicks on the shortened link, they will be directed to the original long URL you entered.
