I'm having difficulty figuring out how to share a flight record on Facebook.

I launch DJI GO 4.
I select Flight Record from the menu in the upper right corner.
I select one of the flights in the list. That displays a map of the area, and allows me to play back the flight.
I select the Sharing icon in the lower-right corner of the map screen.
I select the Facebook icon at the lower left of the screen (the first choice).
I type in a short test message, then select "Share".
I briefly see the message "sharing information is working in the background".
Lastly, I get an "Error" screen with the message "Not logged in: You are not logged in. Please login and try again."

I already had the Facebook app running on my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S8).

I already had Chrome, my default browser, running and logged into Facebook.

How does the app want me to be logged into Facebook?

Has anyone gotten this sharing thing to work; if so, how?

Following up on my previous post....

I've never streamed live to Facebook while flying the drone, and really don't plan to. However, I remembered that DJI GO 4 apparently has this capability.

In DJI GO 4, I opened the General Settings window and chose "Choose Live Streaming Platform". From there, I selected Facebook, entered my Facebook user name (email address) and password, and successfully logged in.

I then backed out of that screen without logging out of Facebook. I went to the Flight Record section of the app, selected one of the entries in the list, selected the Share icon in the lower-right corner, chose Facebook, typed a brief post, and clicked Share.

Same result: "Not logged in: You are not logged in. Please login and try again."

Has anybody gotten this feature to work, or should I just forget it? I'm getting the feeling now that I'm wasting my time.

Can anyone assist?

You can share your flight record using Airdata.com

I'm well aware of Airdata.com. Right now, I'm only interested in Facebook, and the purported ability of DJI GO 4 to post flight records to Facebook.

Facebook will share your video but not flight record.
The name you give to the record when sharing is the only thing which is shared.

So, it's pointless to try to share a flight record in any form by selecting that "Facebook" link at the bottom of the Flight Record screen? Then why is that icon wasting screen space if it doesn't do anything?

It will share the short text but not the record itself. The connection to Facebook work but not the sharing itself. Have not got this working and ended up using Airdata.
Also the HD player in Airdata give better view on text message and other record.
