    Like if I want to share a picture from my gallery to a friend's timeline, I can no longer select that option from the dropdown menu in Facebook from Android's built-in Share menu. I now have to actually enter the app to do this. This is on the full FB app on both tablet and phone.

    Why would FB remove this feature?:(

    That's a good question for Facebook. Haha

    I've asked there too. Tried asking on their reddit. Nothing.

    Wish I could say I'm surprised by that.

    I gave up trying to figure out why they do the things they do a long time ago...

    I also find it a pity that FB removes this feature, and I do not understand why
