Facebook Reveals New “Share” Function

Facebook recently came out with a new function for the “Share ” link on wall posts. For instance, when you see a story in your news feed that you want to share, you click on the “Share” link as you can see highlighted below:
Then you see the usual share dialog window that enables you to share the wall post by a page or one of your friends, but here’s what looks different below as a result of the new update Facebook brought to the “share” function.
You can now either share the wall post on your wall, or post it to your friend’s wall post, or to a group that you participate in. You can even send it as a private message to people. This change makes the wall post sharing function better for people on Facebook, and heightens the value of a “trusted” friend who spreads the news about a business page, celebrity, or wall posts from another friends.
It makes sharing information easier, and although there may be security concerns about control of data from one group to another group, or getting direct spam from your friends on your wall post that is unwelcome, the potential for the new “share” function is welcome, and great news for those that use Facebook primarily to share information and marketers as well.
