Facebook may replace share button with a message button

For all those who share posts on Facebook, reports suggest that the social media giant may actually be working to remove this option. The 'share' button may be replaced with a message button.


The update came from Twitter user, Matt Navarra, a famous social and digital media consultant. He had tweeted a screenshot of the share-message switch up on his Facebook timeline and wrote, "Facebook is testing replacing the Share button with a Message button (sic)."


This update has been noticed by a few profiles on certain posts on their news feeds. This could be a move from Facebook to push users to interact more with Messenger. While this update can declutter news feeds for users, it will definitely hinder the reach of pages.


The update, however, has not yet been confirmed by Facebook. There is no guarantee that this feature will actually be enforced either. However, if this update is rolled out, time spent by users on Facebook will definitely become less.
