Facebook Test Lets Users Share On The Go With A Mobile Web Share Button

It quite surprising that mobile Facebook users haven’t been able to share articles on mobile devices. Facebook’s “Share” button allows users to quickly pass along interesting posts to their own audience. It’s a frequently used element on the web version of the social network. Share however hasn’t been available for mobile devices … until today:

Now mobile web users can quickly use the share button for posts – whether from profiles or pages. Other non-post items (i.e. Events,Sponsored Pages, etc) cannot be shared via the mobile web. This feature has not yet been rolled out to mobile apps, but we’d imagine it would be coming sooner than later.

To test out the new functionality, head over to the mobile Facebook site and get your share on.
