Facebook’s mobile app was updated earlier today, adding a new “Share” button to friend’s posts on your news feed, making it easier than every to add your favorite content to your own feed.
The update has also added new tagging capabilities, so that you can tag your friends in posts, comments, and photos. You will now be able to add smileys, hearts, and emojis to your Facebook feed, and sorting is easier than ever with the new button next to the News Feed in the left sidebar.
According to Facebook employee Aditya Koolwal, the update “gives people a fast way to share stories with friends from their mobile phones, just as they can from their computers.”
Facebook’s new mobile share feature is similar to Twitter’s retweet, allowing users to disseminate information quickly rather than simply “liking” it.
If you don’t already own Facebook for iOS, you can download it for free from the App Store.
