I can't find a dictionary translation of the word "post". For example,

Did you see what I posted on Facebook?

or

Have you seen my post on my Moments (Wechat)?

Update:

What do they say in northern China? (Colloquially)

Colloquially people use 'PO' (mostly in Southern China), 发, 贴, 放, or any verb that has a similar meaning.

Formal translation would be 发布 or 发表.

Did you see what I posted on Facebook? 你看见我在Facebook上PO的东西了吗?

Where did you post it? On WeChat Moments. 你在哪了?微信朋友圈。

  • @tofu_bacon In Northern China 'PO' is rarely used, the other words are common. – NS.X. Aug 27 '15 at 19:59

Did you see what I posted on Facebook? = 你看到我在QQ空间上发表的说说了吗?

    QQ空間 certainly isn't Facebook. You can say 臉書, right? – Sweeper Aug 26 '15 at 13:13

    Facebook is banned in China, qq is not, so I thought I'd use qq, same difference as far as 'post' is concerned. Those sentences were taken from my phone, sent to me by friends. – Pedroski Aug 27 '15 at 1:39
