The upper lines will encourage users to share content with other users within an app. These lines will show up to eight goals, which are specific actions such as sending something to a person using a particular app. On the backend, developers will have access to a new API to define these functions and they can prioritize a small number of sharing actions occurring within the app, which will be shown first.
