Once you feed a query, Facebook will show a list of matching website links you may like to share. It also allows you to preview what is on those websites and let you select one to add it to your status with a caption.

The "Add A Link" button could get users sharing more news and other publisher-made content.

The trial, currently available to a small group in the US, would let users avoid Google or searching through Facebook's News Feed to find a link to share.

As on March 31, Facebook has 1.44 billion monthly active users.
