Facebook Monday announced the rollout of its native share dialog for iOS, allowing developers to enable sharing from their applications by simply adding one line of code.

The social network said in a post on its developer blog that app users will be able to share activities without being required to log into Facebook first, adding that the share dialog functionality is out of beta and was added to its software-development kit for iOS.

Facebook wrote in the blog post:

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 one to three 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.
