  • Easy!

    Applications are designed to share or receive share information based on the types they support.

    So, if an app is designed to only participate in receiving a Text share or a URI share that is all you will see.

    Please read this documentation to understand about sharing, then return to the forums with any questions you may have:

  • yeah thinks for the documentation . i know that but my question is how can i post a simple text on facebook or twitter.

    I have installed the ShareSource sample application from here , it's clear but also when you choose to share a simple text or image , People APP including fb and twitter doesnt appear. I dont know why?

    for link it's ok .

  • Because the app does not support text and image.  Only URL.
