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.

        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.

        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.

        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!

        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
