Facebook refers without sharing to FB

    I do not have my blog connected to my Facebook and I did not share my URL on Facebook so I am wondering why I have Facebook referrals on my stats.
    Not that this is a bad thing, but my blog was more of an anonymous thing that I didn’t want to share on my personal Facebook so I’d like to know where Facebook refers are coming from.

    The blog I need help with is lawgirldogblog.wordpress.com.



    Hi there,

    Just because you didn’t share your posts on Facebook it doesn’t mean no one else did. Your site is public, so literally anyone on the internet could have shared a link to one of your posts in Facebook.

    They wouldn’t even need you to add a Facebook sharing button to do that. They can simply copy the post link from their browser and paste it directly in Facebook.

    There’s no way to tell who shared a link, though – Facebook only tells us if a click came from them, but not from what page exactly on Facebook it came.


    Hey! The Facebook sharing button in my blog appears to everyone else but me. How can I fix it? Thanks!
