When Microsoft announced sharing from Apps such as News or Finance, etc in Win8 year ago, I'm very excited and thank to God. But with Win8 RTM, this keep me confuse for months whenever I tried to share some news :/

I think you will need to share it through Messaging or Mail as it says. :/

To share to social networks, like Facebook or Twitter, you need to make sure you have facebook and twitter set up with your People app. Then, click the share charm and click the people app to share the news in Facebook and/or Twitter.

Alternative, you can download a facebook or twitter app from the Windows Store. Some notable ones are Tweetro for twitter and fliptoast for facebook. Once you install those app and set them up with your account, click the share charm from the news and click the social networking app you installed, like fliptoast or tweetro.

As Nazmus suggested, do you have Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks linked up to the People app? If you do, you should be able to share to those networks, via the People app, when in the News and Finance apps.

I get the same 'error', even with Twitter connected to the People app :/
