The share post area on the home page is a fairly new social networking feature
- and allows you to share Images, text or URLs with Friends, Family Groups, Custom lists, with only yourself, or make a Public post. The above blog post references these posts being easier to interact with Facebook and Whatsapp websites. Collaborating via social networks and Searching are probably among the top uses of FamilySearch - so it makes sense they are visible at the top of the home page. If you are a new user - signing up for a new FamilySearch account - you will see the options of signing in with Facebook of Church of Jesus Christ account:
