When you select share on a photo (from gallery or preview from camera) Facebook is one of the options. If you select this when you are not already signed into facebook, the log-in process is interrupting the flow of the share activity so when you are eventually logged in you are not offered the share activity to approve / complete.  
If you are already signed in when selecting Share with Facebook, the process proceeds normally.

Repro Steps: Do not be logged into facebook on your device
1) Update a Flame to 20150406010204
2) Launch gallery and select a picture
3) Select share and select Facebook
4) Complete the log-in process

You are taken to your main page and no post / share activity is encountered

After successfully signing in you will be taken to the share activity to complete it

Facebook is not a share option in 2.2 so this is a bug with the implementation of a new feature (not a regression)

Revised STR prereq: Must have facebook installed (from Marketplace or Rocket-bar) to get the facebook share option

This issue DOES occur on 2.2, 2.1 and 2.0

NI on component owner for nomination decision and assignment.  Not a regression but we should do better here.

Hema, did you team implement the share to facebook feature?
Flags: needinfo?(hkoka)
Since this is a share activity, it must be the Facebook app that implements it. I assume, therefore, that this is a bug for partner engineering to bring up with Facebook.

Adding Harald who may know who to talk to for this issue.
Michael to escalate this to FB. This was a known limitation of their simplified web activity. As this is not major and not a cross-browser issue I don't expect quick turnaround on the FB side.

Email sent to partner, As this is a minor issue and does not affect multiple browsers, we do not expect quick turnaround on the FB side.
Flags: needinfo?(mellis)
Does partner have any response?
