See who you shared a post with

After you've shared a post, you can always go back to see who you shared it with. By looking at the post, you can tell if it was shared publicly, privately, with your domain, or with only you.

And if you'd like to change what you shared, you can edit or delete your post.

See who you shared your post with

  1. Open Google+.
  2. In the top left, click Menu Menu and then Profile.
  3. Below your cover photo, scroll to the post you're looking for.
  4. On the post, you’ll see "Shared publicly," "Shared privately," or "Shared only with you" next to your name.
    • Click Shared publicly to see information about people who +1'd, reshared or commented on the post.
    • Click Shared privately to see the people you shared with. You can also see the total number of people you shared with.
    • Click Shared only with you to see that you're the only person who got the post.

Change who you shared a post with

You can't edit a post's share settings after it's been posted. But you can delete the post and share it again to different circles or people. Learn how to edit or delete your posts.

See who else can view a post that was shared with you
