Facebook question: when you share a photo to your news feed does it not show up on your timeline?

Asked by JLeslie (56048points) 2 weeks ago from iPhone

I don’t understand why if I am sharing someone else’s photo that I can’t see it on my profile page and timeline.

I just shared a group of photos and wanted to go to them and write something, and I can’t find them. This has happened before. Usually, eventually, someone likes or comments on the photo and I get a notification and can get back to them.

It will show up if you choose to have it posted to your timeline as well.

I didn’t see that option.

The other person has to have their setting “Public” not “Friends”.

I’m pretty sure his settings are public on the photo, I’m not his friend and there was a share button available. I only knew about the photo because Facebook recognized my face. (Scary).
