They also removed the comment block from our fan page. You now have to click the share button in order for the box to appear.

Why make people with limited skills work harder? I see it as a negative.

Facebook patronizes its newer plugins more than the old "share" button; Much like the "like" button

But the share buttons will still surely work ;)

Use the like button -- if you are going for building your fan page, this is the best tactic. The share button does allow a person to share BUT they added the new mechanism of requisite clicking in order to get better engagement metrics and make sure people don't accidentally click on the share button
