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.
I would love to Share a photo with my friends that I see others post on Facebook. Its a bit tiring that I have to log onto Facebook just to Share a post.
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.
Currently, when I see a story on Facebook wall that I want to post to my Facebook page or tweet it, I have to go to Facebook.com to share it. I would be great if the "share" button from Facebook was one of the options in Hootsuite. This is especially useful when I want to post something to multiple pages or schedule a post for a future date.
Thanks for the suggestion!
We’ll keep an eye on Facebook’s API and look into the possibility of implementing this in the future.

If you have a Hootlet app in Google chrome as I do, then when you are in Facebook on a PC and go to share something, you can schedule the share.... Worked pretty well! Just can't do that from the Hootsuite app... Hope this helps :)

It is extremely surprising that this isn't currently a feature. There must be a lot that goes on within the privacy settings native to Facebook, and no doubt that's difficult to maintain in a 3rd party app such as HootSuite. But being able to do everything on HootSuite has always been a big driving point for me... Everything for business social media, but not so much for personal.

Yes, the ability to share content without a comment is something I badly need. Thanks.
This is crazy that you can't. You can share content but not with an "empty" message, therefore it's not a pure share. My page is fueled by share content.
Sad part is that OTHER post management websites support this. Even a couple of the not so great ones.
Once my pro account is over with for the month, I do NOT plan on resubscribing if this feature is not added.
"The lack of this functionality is one of the reasons why I haven't signed up for pro. " This is the same for us we run 5 Facebook pages and our content is derived from sharing posts from our fans...
Our free month trial runs out soon- please implement!
The lack of this functionality is one of the reasons why I haven't signed up for pro.
pretty please with a cherry on top! :)
please put it
please do it
can you please do this...
I have the same question. Why can't I schedule and share a post from another Facebook page using Hootsuite. I have to say, it also annoys me that you still can't schedule when you "Share" a post when in Facebook either. If you share, you have to share it then and there. You can't schedule it to display at a future time!

Just started using Hootsuite and upgraded to PRO. Hard to believe that I have to go back out to FB to share a post that I find within HS.. I would hope my $110/yr is worth it.

I won't be using Hootsuite without this function as it's important for me to be able to share between twitter and facebook as well as within facebook. When is it getting sorted?
This is from MAY 2012 and even though it has almost 500 votes, Hootsuite hasn't bothered to listen? NO EXCUSE!
Why is this not taken care of yet?
This would be very useful for me also

I'm stunned to find this capability isn't already in HootSuite.
what's status? looks like this basic feature has been requested many times but no response since mid-2012?
This is essential to us and would love to see this as a feature
I agree! it would be really helpful!!
