Facebook has reportedly introduced a Twitter-like feature that would allow users to share a particular post again with friends and followers.


Similar to the 'retweet' feature, Facebook's 'reshare' button has been rolled out with the social networking giant's new app that is part news feed and part news reader, dubbed 'Paper.'

According to The Verge, the 'reshare' button is placed at the bottom of any post inside Paper and users can tap an arrow symbol to bring up a Share dialogue and tap on 'reshare' to share the post again.

The feature is similar to the 'Share on your own Timeline' option on Facebook's website and the 'Share Now' option in Facebook's mobile apps, but is different because of its one-tap simplicity and its use of the familiar retweet symbol.

Facebook has been borrowing ideas from rival Twitter for tweaking its own site like launching 'hashtag' and 'Trending Topics' feature.

The company said that it has 'no current plans' to roll out the 'reshare' feature on all platforms yet.
