Facebook Tests ‘Post’ Button On Top Bar

Facebook wants users to be able to post to the News Feed from anywhere on the site, even when they are already on the News Feed. Some users are seeing a post button on the top of the site. Facebook was testing a similar button in March.

Facebook wants users to be able to post to the News Feed from anywhere on the site, even when they are already on the News Feed. Some users are seeing a post button on the top of the site. Facebook was testing a similar button in March.

Along the top bar on Facebook, the site has moved the home button (which also told users how many new stories were on their News Feeds when they were on other pages) and added a post button, which allows users to immediately post to their Timelines from anywhere on Facebook.

While having the ability to post from anywhere could be useful, most people generally spend a lion’s share of their time on Facebook on the News Feed. So when a user clicks the post button when they’re on News Feed, it seems somewhat redundant.

If users click post when they’re in groups or on page,s the prompt will allow them to post status updates, photos, or videos to the News Feed (not that group or page).
