  • On iOS, this is the name of the social service popup to show. Supported values are "twitter", "facebook", or "sinaWeibo".

  • On Android, this is the package name of the social service you wish to check is installed on the device. For example, if you set this to "twitter", this function will check to see if any package names installed on the device contain the string twitter and, if a match is found, it will return true. If you don't care about checking for a specific service, and simply want to check if at least one is available, set this to "share".
