Sharing Through Facebook Gets a Whole Lot Easier With New Share Button (Update)

Well, fancy that. A shiny new “Share” button has been added to your mobile timeline, that way you can easily share the content you see on Facebook with the people you care most about (your online friends, duh). There is no update for the app in Google Play that I know of and I don’t yet see it on the app, so I’m guessing this feature will go live very soon.

As a funny note, I would like it put on the record that Facebook thinks Android users have no friends and never get any notifications, while the iOS user has lots of notifications.

Update: Naturally, the update is now live on Google Play. Have at it!

    Facebook is so stupid.

    The way i see it, Android users are more on-top of there notifications then iOS users. Technically the picture has more likes on Android then iOS.

    Looks like an iOS app still. Oh well I don’t use Facebook, never have never will.

    I don’t understand why a company worth billions of dollars can’t make a decent app. Why does it take an act of congress to get a share button put on the app. Zuckerburg said in that interview a few weeks back that mobile is really what they are focusing on. I don’t see it. Their app is terrible.

    Monica has more “likes” on the Nexus version. #Winning

    I was thinking there were no Notifications for Android users in the pic, because maybe like I have done, I turned off a lot of automatic notifications to save battery life. I don’t need to see a message or notification everytime one gets posted.

    The app permissions required for the FB app are just scary. The ONLY reason I have it installed is to have access to share things to FB from my phone. Seriously considering whether that is worth it or not.

  • Booyah

    I’ve actually seen this on the mobile browser version for a while, hence why I use it over the actual app.

  • Apostrafee

    Gosh that screen is cramped

  • OreoMan

    Man, look how gorgeous the Nexus looks next to that over-priced, elongated iPhone!

  • DodgerDroid

    Is the app native yet? I refuse to use the Facebook app until it is native.

      Nope, but its starting to get better (still not as good as G+ though)

  • JetBlue

    People still use the official facebook app? I just go to my browser since it’s actually usable unlike the app.

      The app is MUCH better than it used to be. It’s fairly usable now. The interface still sucks, but the performance is just fine.

    No, your average iOS user is a teenage attention whore with 1847 friends. Your average Android user is a mature well rounded individual with better things to do than post on facebook every 15 minutes.

      He was referencing the photo. The iphone has 20 notifications the android has none.

      Edit:Good point non the less.

        but oddly, it could be, the same persons facebook

        • http://Twitter.com/ContestsAccount bigrob60

          That’s what makes it all the more fun.

      • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

        I know.

    • ERIC REED

      Says the guy on here everyday posting on every post…

  • DatterBoy

    A while ago I read the articles here about the Android FB app and experience getting better. Well, here we are a few months later, and it still sucks.

    • http://twitter.com/Bhockey77 Court

      You may think it still sucks… but it has improved

      • John

        Only very little. It still pretty much sucks.

      • Sqube

        It has improved, but it still sucks.

        Much the way that getting a D- is an improvement from getting an F, but still bad.

    • michael arazan

      Facebook sucks worse than a loose hooker after a busy weekend

  • EvanTheGamer

    Well it’s about damn time! Seriously. Ever since they revealed a “Share Post” option way back when, I’ve been wondering when the hell they’d finally get around to implementing this Sharing feature to the official Facebook app. Better late than never I suppose.

  • NicholasMicallef

    Just got an app update…

  • Dustin Murphy

    but now there IS an app update available.. go check again….

      That’s just not fair!

      • Dustin Murphy

        D’oh!

  • realfoxm
