    I used to be able to share my photos with all the available social netwoking apps on my S2 when it was a Gingerbread Firmware. But now, after after updating my S2 to Android ver. 4.0.3 firmware, all the social networking apps have disappeared, and what is showing now after pressing the “share via” now is all share and picasa. Now its sucks as i dont know how i can have all my social networking apps into the “share via” option. Now i have to go out of the gallery menu and go to my social networking apps FB or viber or whatsapp then from there i go to the photo gallery and choose the photo that i want to share or send. Please help. tahnk you.
