Hi Christine, which version are you on? I ask because I don't see Repost as an action in my environments.
Sharing lets you do one of two things:
- Share a piece of content with a person or people. It acts as a Private Message, with any additional messaging you want to add, plus a link to the original piece of content.
- Share a piece of content with another place. This will include a link to the shared content in the activity stream of the new place, and add a link to the originating content in the Content list of that place. Since it really only lives in the originating place, it is not indexed in the new, "shared-to" place. You can not add a message to the content as you can when you send it to people.
To see what you've shared, go to your inbox and filter by your own name.
We're using Jive-N (I'm not sure if you need more information than that) so I may have some different functionality, but I appreciate your advice with sharing!

The Repost option is available on Status Updates posted to the entire community, and allows you to create a new status update with the "repost" attached. Very similar to how a retweet / quoted tweet works. It will show up as a Status Update from you. Note: this option is not available on status updates posted to a Group.
Share, on the other hand, allows you to share a place or content with someone else, or even with another place.
