How can I share someone else’s wall post with the official Facebook app for Android?
Question by Iric Siegert /

I’ve been wrestling with the Facebook app on Android. I haven’t figured out how to share someone else’s wall post on my wall. I can do it with other Facebook apps, but not the official app. What’s the secret to doing this?

    Log onto fb using your phone’s web browser. The mobile website will probably come up; delete the “m” at the beginning of the web address to go to the normal site. The “share” function is then available!

    If you want to share a friends wall photo on your phone you open the picture to full view and then hold your finger down until it says save photo or cancel. Then you save the photo and repost it on your own wall.

    Try to access facebook using Opera 12 . In the advanced setting use Desktop instead of mobile . By doing so you will be able to access facebook as you do on your pc. no known apps for Android is allowing what you need. i tried all known ones and they do not do it.

    I don’t get how I can set my status as my friends status without rewriting it on an iPhone does anyone else know how?

    Not sure about posts and links, but to share other people’s photos, press the menu button and share. Then choose which app you want to share with.

    Well sharing photo via my “menu share button” downloads the original photo to my phone and then uploads it to my profile.. very clever:)

    This option is also available in the stock android browsers 2.2 and above
