          public static final int FACEBOOK_ADD_STICKER_TO_STORY_REQUEST = 10;
          public static final String FACEBOOK_SHARE_STICKER_INTENT = "com.facebook.share.ADD_STICKER_TO_STORY";

          // proposal on firing the implicit share intent
          Intent intent = new Intent(FACEBOOK_SHARE_STICKER_INTENT);
          intent.setDataAndType(fileUri, "image/*");
          intent.putExtra("content_url", contentUrl);
          intent.putExtra("top_background_color", topColor);
