Why can’t I share articles to Facebook from email without an error?

March 7, 2013
Pinterest Stumbleupon Whatsapp

When I try to ‘share this article now’ from my email, I get the message “The post’s links must direct to the application’s connect or canvas URL.” from Facebook. Why? It sure seems as if a ‘share article now’ button would simply post it to Facebook.

Thanks!

    One of possible reasons: Either it's because an email isn't a publicly accessible webpage - it's just a message, sent to you. You can't share that. Or it's because the email/article you're looking at is using the old form of share link which has since been removed by Facebook. Some more details would help - what is this newsletter or article, is it from MakeUseOf?
