you can create a share wherever you want,

best place will be under home directory.

create as a user or root doesn't matter, it depends on what you want to acheive.

just go :

cd home/
mkdir myshare

By right clicking on desktop click on open terminal. Here you can work on CLI.

I would recommend you place the new directory/folder under /home.  Keeps all the User folders in a common structure.
