When posting to facebook the "share" feature is not available on posts, just "like" and "comment" appear. Is this an intended result or is there something we are doing wrong in the installation of the plug-in?

There is already an issue open for Facebook shares: #22

We are currently using the Graph API, and shares are not implemented on the Graph API. We are planning on using Open Graph, but that has yet to be reviewed.

I think this is a different issue - isn't this saying that our broadcast cannot be "shared"?

dabrisz commented Dec 10, 2011

That is correct. When the post is broadcast it doesn't give the option to share the Facebook comment.


As far as I can tell, this is how Facebook currently treats all status posts.

I am unable to reproduce actually. I just broadcasted a post to Facebook and this is what I see on Facebook:


Then after sharing the status:

Facebook seems to be in flux on this... recommend taking no action at this time.


Closing this out.


I'd be interested in re-opening this one. It seems that when something is posted via Social to a Facebook page, rather than an individual account, the Share button doesn't appear:



If you can figure out what Social is doing "wrong" or what it should be doing differently, please post accordingly.


I can confirm this comparing posts made directly on facebook containing a link, and the posts coming from social.

Looks like there is a different endpoint link to send "link" posts too.


This enables the "share" action on the resulting feed post.

Looks like the endpoint would need to be switched here...


based on isset($args['link'])
