New Delhi: With the iOS and Android versions of Facebook, one could practically do as much as its desktop counterpart. In a bid to improve the mobile versions of the social networking service, Facebook has informed TechCrunch that the 'Share' button will be rolled out to the mobile site, and will come soon to the Android and iOS apps.

The report states that this feature will allow people to share links and photos posted by others or even a Sponsored Story ad and quickly repost it with the option of adding a comment. This will work a lot like its desktop counterpart.

The report states, "Facebook has always been about personal updates, not blindly passing on links, but it could start looking a lot like Twitter soon. Inside Facebook reported the mobile site button was a test, but when I asked Facebook, the company confirmed this is not a test and all mobile site and app users will have it soon."
