Yes, as long as it has in the body the required information (In my state that's brokerage name and number as well as agent's name and number).  I actually have lots of random people share my ads... like when someone will share it to a wall of someone they know is looking for a home.  All my business posts have the correct information to be okay to be shared by anyone.

What stops anyone from sharing your posts...

You have put the information out there, in hopes it will be shared, so I do not see what stops anyone from sharing it, including your assistant. 

If s/he were a client and shared it would you ask the same question?

I would ask her to credit you/your brokerage (in accordance with state laws) when she shared your post, CYA.

I agree with the others. If your post has the pertinent information in it, including your brokerage I don't see how it's any different than a friend or some random person sharing it. Broker to broker I'd recommend making sure that your brokerage information or whatever is required by WY state law is included in the post so that is shared all along with it. -Kasey

I think it is different because I could share your listing on my Facebook page even though I am not licensed in your state.  I could be saying - Look at this awesome kitchen that a friend has listed - or I could say - why didn't the photographer put the toilet seat down! Anyone who sees your listing on the internet could share it on Facebook and say this is where I am going this afternoon!
