We’ve been wondering for a while now how long it would take Facebook to give users the ability to share something that someone else on facebook has posted. Until now, we’ve had to repost it ourselves and manually give someone else credit.
But now, via the “share” link on people’s wall posts, Facebook will say where you got your information from (“via…”). You can see below what this looks like.
We’re glad this functionality has made its way to Facebook, because it just makes it that much easier to share information about products and brands, thus making creative ad campaigns just that much more viral.
Is this retweet feature on Facebook just what you’ve been waiting for, or do you not care about its arrival? Let us know what you think about the Facebook retweet functionality in the comments section below.
