I am trying to create a Facebook style timeline, but I’m running into an issue sorting the repeating group of posts according to when each post is posted / reposted. As of current I am sorting the timeline based on each post’s creation date, but that won’t work since a newly shared post may display in the middle of the timeline.
Each post has a “shared by” field with a list of users. However, I’m stuck because I can’t create a “shared date” field since this date will be different for multiple users.
I would prefer not to create a new post every time the share button is clicked (like the microblogging app), since each post has a comment thread below it.
Thanks in advance.
