Facebook Adds ‘Via’ to Shared Content

FacebookVia.jpgSharing became a lot more social on Facebook over the past weekend, as the social-networking site tweaked the function to allow users to include the person or page the item originally came from, with the option to remove that information, as well, Inside Facebook reported.

The reshared content features a prominent link to the item’s previous publisher, aimed at boosting traffic to their pages, according to Inside Facebook.

However, Inside Facebook pointed out that the new attribution feature doesn’t dig back to the original poster of the content, only looking back one link on the chain.
