How to Link to Specific Facebook, Twitter or Google+ Posts

Blogs have long incorporated permalinks – permanent links – which enable a user to link to a specific post regardless of where it currently sits within the blog, for example, as it moves from the recent posts section on the homepage to an archive folder. Social media activity streams pose a similar accessibility problem: how to bring visibly to a specific post as it disappears out of sight as new posts are published above it. Facebook, Twitter and Google+ all provide a simple way to access and copy a URL for every update. This is useful for cross-promoting specific posts from other platforms or for bookmarking.
