    But as I feared, and was confirmed by other posters, all it does is take you to specific in app areas from home. Doesn't let you write post from home screen without entering app.

    Why would anyone expect it to do that? None of the Apple apps that use 3D Touch do this, they all open the app and take you to the corresponding location.

    Can anyone figure out the app url scheme (fb://something) for creating a new post/status update?

    Thought it should be available now since it's a 3d touch item.

    Well perhaps you know exactly what 3D Touch is capable of. I'm not completely familiar with the entire Api of it so I was hoping it did more than quick access to sections in an app. It's still pretty cool and I think can go a long way. I was just conversing on the new Facebook update and what I hoped it would have liked to see.

    It's the same as Insta and Twitter as well, 3D touch those and you can post something but still opens the app up.

    Got to appreciate this is still a new concept thats less than a month old, 3-4 months time we could have it where you can post something without the app opening or even better ideas/suggestions

    this is what I'm hoping for, it'd take it to an even better level

    Or better yet, delete your Facebook account.

    This would be a good idea but given the other ways 3D Touch is used I'm not sure why anyone would expect it. I'm still trying to maintain some excitement based on the not yet realized potential of 3D Touch, but so far I can't get past it feeling gimmicky. At best, so far, it's a way of saving me one second.

    At the moment the API for 3D Touch only supports up to 4 lines of text with an icon. Basically a graphical representation of the app url scheme I guess. These items can be dynamic (most used, recently used etc) or static, but that's all the protocol supports at this time. Why anyone would expect to be able to post directly to anything I've no idea. If it were a thing, then I'm sure Apple would have implemented it in Messages or email.
