Sharing a Facebook post from another artist or art business is a social media marketing strategy that artists build a following.
When scrolling down your favorite artist’s Facebook page, you will see a share button that allows you to share the post on your newsfeed where your Facebook friends can see the post. It is also possible to share posts on your Facebook business page where your fans can see original content that inspires you or information that might be valuable to them.
There will be times when you will want to remove a shared post from your personal or business Facebook account, and doing so is accessible on a PC, mobile app, or mobile browser.

Final Thoughts On Deleting Posts On Facebook
As you build a larger audience on Facebook, you will want to adjust your marketing strategies.
For example, you might want to highlight special sales on future posts to repeat customers by adjusting the sharing option.
Or maybe when a sale is over, you might want to delete a post so people will not ask for the sale price after the sale is expired.
You have other options to make your social network marketing more practical, like highlighting a sale or a new item on the top post. If a post is pinned to the top of the page, it will be the first post visitors see when they visit your page. Not only will promoting a sale on the top of your page increase sales, but it might also increase the number of shares the pin receives.
