She shared snippets of herself with him.
Using her would indicate ambiguity, as if "she" is sharing the photos/snippets of "some other girl" with "him". To avoid such misunderstandings or ambiguity, it is better to use herself.
In case, you want to picture the fact, that "she" is sharing the photos/snippets of "some other girl", then you must use her.
He was doing fine, even better than her.
This sentence certainly portrays third person part of view. Hence it would mean the usage of her. This is like a comparison statement made to compare their physical health/mental health/social interactivity, etc.
