Highlighting text and uploading to Facebook

I recently tested out the function where you highlight text and then send it to Facebook. I also updated the firmware to the latest version. what i want to know is when you send a paragraph to say, Facebook does the K3 freeze while its sending the text? When i do it it does and i cannot use it for around 30 seconds. Not sure if im being paranoid or not but was thinking could it have been the update as when i updated the K3 kept freezing for a while. Over .

I didn't quite notice any freeze. Hmmm...or maybe I did, my K3 freeze and reboots. I didn't associate it with sharing passages thru FB though...

I might check it again and see... thanks for this heads up...

I did it earlier this evening, though not on purpose - more of a "what does this button do?" thing. I did not notice a noticeable freeze, but I'm connected via Wifi. Perhaps the process takes noticeably longer over Whispernet.

I'm with Albright - tried the feature, probably won't use it, but it's quite well implemented.

I didn't notice any freeze, but my K3 is wifi and I tried it with 3.02 firmware.
