Sharing made simple for iOS apps

May 20, 2013ByJason Clark

Today we’re making sharing from your iOS apps easy. With the native Share Dialog, you can significantly improve people’s sharing experiences from your mobile app. Similar to the Like button, you can create engaging sharing experiences with just one line of code. The Share Dialog is coming out of beta today and is ready for use in your apps through the Facebook SDK for iOS.

The Share Dialog offers a lightweight and consistent way to enable sharing from your apps. People now have the option to share activity from apps through this dialog without needing to login to Facebook first. This eliminates 1 – 3 extra steps required for login when sharing via the feed dialog.

The Share Dialog further improves upon the iOS 6 share sheet by adding support for publishing Open Graph actions to make it easier for people to tell their stories on mobile. In addition, people can now tag friends and share where they are enabling them to share in a more meaningful and engaging way, while helping even more people connect with your app.

If you’re a mobile developer, this should be one of the first ways you integrate your app with Facebook to engage with our 750+ million mobile users. Learn more about getting started with the Share Dialog.
