Ability to "Share" Facebook posts within HootSuite
Ability to "Share" a Facebook post would be extremely useful for information proliferation. Such a tool would significantly enhance HootSuite's capabilities on data and profile management.
Integrate the Ability to "Share" Facebook Posts within Hootsuite
Facebook scheduling is very limited as it stands. Post scheduling is fine and good, but edgerank is all about engagement! Let us schedule facebook post sharing so we can have multiple personal accounts share a scheduled post from a linked business fan page.
Allow to sharing Facebook comment on Twitter, at least the admin comments, and linking back to the whole Facebook post
#1 necessity for me is to be able to view, share with and tweet/retweet to my Facebook friend lists. Without that feature I unfortunately can't use HootSuite.
I would like to share my friend's status.
When u sharing a post, it should include picture, picture descrition, and the post source, currently only includes post source
You should be able to time your sharing of a Facebook status or photograph. I don't know about everyone else but when I go onto a company Facebook profile it tends to be a 20 minute period during the day and if I see several things I want to share - it's going to annoy people sharing lots of things in such a short space of time. So it would be really good to save a status in Hootsuite and plan a time to send it.
When we click 'share' on a friends post we should be able to schedule when we would like to send it.
Allow sharing a post from one FB Page onto one of yours, while also using the auto post feature.
share feature for facebook and larger pictures
You should be able to "share" posts from Facebook that allow you to easily repost things your friends have posted. Would love if by clicking a "share" button, it automatically added all the info and links to the "compose message" box so you can edit and schedule it to go out later.
When someone puts up a post that I'd like to repost or share on my wall, I am not seeing how you do that. I am going back to FB which is exactly what I am trying to avoid.
We’ll examine if this is available with Facebook’s API.

I really have to rethink my pro account because of this. Especially considering buffer offers this functionality and is linked to facebook. I love hootsuite and don't want to leave.. but this is a pivotal function I need as Facebook is my predominant social media platform over twitter at this point. :(
And over a year later....?
This would be good
I'd appreciate this so much!

This would be an excellent improvement, please implement it!
I agree with the ability to share comment. Not being able to do this is making me question the value of paying for HootSuite. I realize this is a problem at least in part with Facebook permissions
Inability to "share" with FB is the ONLY reason why I won't get a pro account
Markus Klein commented
I'm a pro user and did not pay attention that this feature was not available. I might rethink my Pro account if that issued does not get solved sooner or later
This is now available in the API - why hasn't it been implemented yet???

I agree a work around is possible, but it would seem that this is exactly the type of function many Hootsuite users would have adopted Hootsuite for...
Better yet - schedule a share. Huge selling point, if you want to make it a premium feature.

It's unbelievable that not only is this feature not even available, but that it's nearly a year after Chris's comment and there's still no update. FB sharing is a basic everyday feature which we all use. It's what makes it 'social'! Pull your finger out Hootsuite please.
Soo.... no update?Chris from HootSuite?
I want to schedule a share .....

Is there an update on this request? I'm using HootSuite for my iPad and I can't believe this feature is not available. I manage several pages and often have a need to share posts between them.
I was sure it must be possible and I just couldn't figure out how to do it. It's become a pretty basic use of facebook especially if you have facebook pages and I need it on Hootsuite!
Any word on when this will be available? It would be a huge improvement.
I already missed that feature on the first hour I used HootSuite. The ability to share a facebook friends post on your wall is a must.
The face that this issue wasn't dealt with stopped me from paying for this service. I will continue to use it, but with such holes in the service, and no feedback from the company, I can't imagine what else isn't to my liking. Such a basic feature, sharing a post! Smh.
