Want to reshare something again?

Hi,

When I click reshare on something I already reshared, it turns unreshared. Then, when I clicked it again, it turns back into reshared. I checked my feed, and it went up to the top again. This way, we can keep a post or problem up on the top of everyone's feed all the time. That would certainly get annoying after a while.

Is this intentional, or a glitch? Shouldn't we have that after clicking reshare, we can't undo it again?

Thanks,

Daniel

I can see it being abused, but bumping can be worthwhile. What is the chance that the first time you decided to reshare, it was the perfectly timed moment to get the item exposure? As long as people use it with some restraint, I think the ability to redraw attention to something of value is good.

I discovered this before. Sometimes you need to reshare something more than once for it to get better exposure.

But it won't be our own problem because we can't reshare our own problem. But you are right.
