Alright, people wanna be able to share into groups. People never want to be surprised. By what they are content is going to look like when they share it. So today we are going to fix it. We are introducing and elegant and consistent way to share form all of the different apps you are building across the whole family of Facebook services. So the new share sheet creates a consistent experience for everyone using the apps to share with anyone they want. [INAUDIBLE] Including and messengering groups.
