Important Update To This Feature
Facebook has let us know about some upcoming changes in the Facebook Messenger platform that we wanted to share with you:
"During F8 this year, we announced our plans to launch a lighter, better and simpler Messenger designed to build closer connections between people and businesses. As part of these efforts to thoughtfully prioritize features that best deliver this experience, we are announcing an additional set of feature changes to the Messenger Platform. "
Share functionality will not include a button that opens native sharing on Messenger. Facebook wants people to share content to Messenger using only the native sharing features that is built into their devices. Our share replies and buttons will continue to offer buttons to share to Facebook and twitter. This change will happen automatically, we've removed this functionality from our app as it will no longer be supported.
