How to Share Links on the Android Facebook App

The Facebook application for Android allows you to view your News Feed, comment on your friends' posts, add images to your photo albums and share links on your Wall. Unlike the desktop Facebook interface, the Android app does not feature specialized post fields for images, links or your status. However, the status update field is fully compatible with hyperlinks and allows you to share links copied from the browser on your Android.
