At its F8 event today, Facebook announced that it's rolling out a new feature that will allow you to easily share snippets of text alongside the link to an article to Facebook. Instead of copying and pasting a block of text, you'll soon be able to highlight some text, then click a "Share Quote" button to send the highlighted text alongside a link to the article on your Facebook page. Right now, the Amazon Kindle is the only launch partner, but quote sharing will likely roll out to other sites in the future.
