Share Articles on Facebook

Much like the recent ability to post an article to your Shared Items list in Google Reader, you can now also post an article to your Facebook wall. You can access the function from each item's Share menu.

The first time you try to share an item on Facebook you will be asked to give FeedsAnywhere permissions to write to your account. We only request the minimum functionality and despite permissions including the ability to read your profile we are only posting and not saving any of your Facebook data.

After authentication is authorized your won't have to do it again unless you revoke the permission at some point. The post you requested will be automatically continued after the authentication.

When selecting to share an item an ellipsis will appear to indicate that an action is underway and it will switch to a check once the post has been successfully make. This should typically only take a second or two if there aren't any network connection problems.

Please let me know if you run into any problems or have any suggestions. Next up are Twitter and Instapaper.
