What does the rectangular icon next to messages in Facebook chat on my Android phone mean?

Lesley Pinnelli November 13, 2014

I am using a Samsung Galaxy Android phone. Sometimes whilst on facebook chat/ messenger an icon appears next to text. It is rectangular in shape with corners cut off and a line running down centre. I have noticed it also when another party sends me photos. Why would this appear next to text please. Thank you

    It lets you forward the link to others with one touch. It's basically a convenient 'internal share' option.
