You can allow people to share your post on Facebook without changing the privacy settings on your actual account. You can do this by changing the privacy settings on the post itself.
Use the drop-down box in the “Share This Status” dialog box to choose who you want to share the post with. You can repost to your own timeline, a friend’s timeline, to a group, on a page you own or as a private message to another user.
You can change privacy settings on an individual post that you want to make shareable by clicking the “Privacy” icon next to the post time stamp and selecting either “Friends” or “Public.” Select “Friends” if you want friends to be able to share the post or select “Public” if you want anyone to be able to see the post.
When someone hits the Facebook Share button, they can publish a post that they’re interested in on their own wall, without having to copy and paste a link onto their Facebook profile. The Share button is one of the three engagement options that Facebook gives users to allow them to connect with people online.
If you want to make a previous post shareable, after locating the post, select the ellipsis icon (•••) on the right side of the post and choose “Edit Post.” Select the first drop-down menu below your name (labeled “Friends”) and choose “Public” on the new page.

What is the difference between sharing and posting?
Sharing in the modern sense is also generally done by posting something on a social media site. Typically, you share postings made by others, of whatever form video, status/comment, image with remarks, etc. Posting is what you or they do, either from scratch or like Twitter says re-tweeting/reposting.
