Socializing with friends and loved ones on Facebook is absolute fun. Whether you want to post your favorite photo or a funny video or create a special page, the social networking app is designed to fill your time with plenty of joy.

That apart, there are quite a few areas where I want the social networking app to get better. As for instance, you can copy text in messages or comments but there is no option to copy text from news feed, posts and statuses in Facebook on your iPhone or iPad.

How to Copy Post Text from Facebook App on iPhone

Many of us want to copy text from Facebook timeline occasionally but need to log in to the desktop website of the social networking site, just because of lacking of copy text from the News feed on App. There is no obvious reason why text can’t be copied from Facebook Status or posts.

If you have jailbroken iPhone running iOS 8, there is good news for you. There is a Cydia tweak called FBCopyTXT. As name the name itself suggests, FBCopyTXT is a simple jailbreak tweak that lets you copy Facebook posts text with long press gesture. This tweak is available in BigBoss repo for absolutely free.

How Does it Work

Step #1. Once you have successfully installed the tweak on your iPhone, launch the Facebook app.

Step #2. Next up, you have to long press on the post text which you want to copy.

Step #3. The option to copy text will appear on the screen (with a copy option too) Tap on the Copy button and entire Facebook status will be copied.

That’s it!

The Shortcoming

The only drawback of this tweak is that it doesn’t let you copy selected part of the status. However, you can paste entire status somewhere and edit there.

We just hope that developer of the tweak will bring selective copying mechanism in upcoming versions. Along with copying, you can also share post Facebook status on Twitter or Message App at the same time.

The Verdict

If you have been using Facebook mostly on your iPhone, you should be grateful for this tiny FBCopyTXT and its developer @iMokhles. As for rating it, I’d certainly consider it a worth shot on my iOS device. And, I’m sure you’d like having a try at it as well, wouldn’t you?
