One of the biggest Facebook features is the ability to share posts that your friends have made to your own timeline, but oddly enough it has been absent from the social network’s mobile apps since their inception. We’re not sure why a bigger focus hasn’t been put on introducing one of Facebook’s most widely used features to the vast amount of people who use Facebook in a mobile capacity, but as of now it just hasn’t.
According to TechCrunch, though, that’ll be changing soon. Facebook is reportedly gearing up to launch the ability to share posts from within its mobile app. This functionality is already available to those who are still tied to the mobile Facebook site, but it will be nice to get it inside the company’s native app.
Heck, us Android users are still waiting on the update that will make use of Android’s native UI elements instead of the slow HTML 5-based code still being used today. Facebook has already updated the iOS version of its app to make that change and the reception to that change has been very warm. Us Android folks need it even more so hopefully that is Facebook’s focus alongside the aforementioned share feature in its next big update.
