You might have seen some stories on Facebook with a clickable link that can open directly just by tapping on it. You may already know how to share photos and videos on your Facebook stories but things get complicated when it comes to posting a clickable link. Do you also want to add such type of link on your Facebook story?


There are several reasons why you will need to do this. For example, you may want to share your YouTube videos or some important webpage on your story. Making the link clickable will allow the viewers to visit the website directly without opening it in a browser and typing the link manually. This will also increase the click-through rate (CTR) on your link.

Unfortunately, Facebook doesn’t have any option in its app and desktop website also that can help you to post clickable link on your stories. You may find many workarounds on the internet but most of them don’t actually work. In this guide, we have shared 100% tested and working methods that you can use to add clickable link on your Facebook story.

1. Add link on Facebook story using share link


In this method, we will provide you a link through which you can post clickable link on your Facebook stories. You don’t need Facebook app for this method as it works in a browser. Just open any web browser (such as Google Chrome or Safari browser) on your Android smartphone or iPhone and paste this URL in the URL tab -

https://m.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=yourlinkhere

Make sure to replace yourlinkhere with the full URL of the link that you want to share on your Facebook story. For example: https://m.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=https://www.geekinstructor.com

Once you have edited the link, click Go button to open the webpage. It will take you to the Facebook website. If you are not logged in, you will be asked to login to your account. Just enter your email address and password. After that, you will be on share page.


Now tick mark Your Story option. By default, the News Feed is also selected. If you don’t want to share the link on your profile, you can untick this option. Finally, tap the Post button and you have successfully added clickable link on your Facebook story. Just go to your profile and check it.

2. Add link on Facebook story using WhatsApp


Facebook and WhatsApp are now connected with each other. When you post a new status on WhatsApp, you get a feature to share it on your Facebook story also. You can use this feature to post clickable link on Facebook stories. Here’s a step-by-step guide -
  1. Open WhatsApp on your smartphone and go to the Status tab.
