Facebook has poor formatting so to post poems is difficult.  If anyone has any ideas I would like to know about them. One techniique is to 
photograph' the poem using a 'capture' app and post it as a photo.  You can't fix anything once the poem is posted. Or go to notebook on facebook, it gives you more options re formatting but is still clumsy. One way of formatting lines is to use white dots or dashes to create the line. 
Facebook live an oral recitation, I don't have many poemy friends and find they usually watch at least 15 seconds if at all. I definitely keep scrolling myself when I see others. That's Facebook though, too many ads
You can format pretty well using Facebook notes, but it takes a little patience and the audience is suspect - at least in my case.
