Facebook for iOS, Android, and mobile web have been updated today with a new ‘Share’ button on news feed items.
The new button will allow Facebook users to repost other users’ posts for their groups of friends (with comments of their own, if they so choose.) It’s a lot like the “re-blog” functionality that Tumblr was founded on, and it’s also similar to Twitter’s “re-tweet” function.
The iOS version went live today with the following new features:
- New Share link to re-post stories from your news feed
- Tag your friends in any post, comment or photo
- Smileys, hearts and other emoji in messages
- To sort your feed, tap the button next to News Feed in the left sidebar
