ability to add a forward to friend in emails

I created an email using card/announcement and when I tried to add "forward to a friend", "join my mailing list" and permission reminder" I was not able. I would like to have the ability to use these functions in future emails that I create.

Hi everyone! I am following up to the forward to friend feature request. Thank you for your patience as we looked into this! The good news is we have received word from our engineers that feature is now available in our cross device templates under the social share block. If anyone has any additional questions on this, please don’t hesitate to respond to this post as we would be happy to assist you further.

where are the buttons/links for Forward to a Friend or Join our List? I don't see either of these under the build options anymore.

mobile templates need join mailing list button
Please have your developers add a "Forward to a Friend" feature to this editor. And add Instagram to the Social Media feature. Thanks.
I'm using the new editor and mobile friendly template and there is no forward or share button available. This ought to be a very high priority! Can you please make this available, and let me know when it is and how I can add it to the existing email that I now copy each time I create a new email to go out? Many thanks.
I was excited about the new email wizard but then I found out that not all features are available, e.g., making a template now that I finally got around to creating a new email format. Also, I cannot add the "Forward to a Friend" in the new wizard. Those are definite bummers. When will they be available?
I'm still missing some really important features in the new/beta responsive e-mail builder: - better text control, including indents - "forward this e-mail to a friend" - "view this e-mail in your browser" - also, it would be great to have more than one-column or two-column options. When can we expect updates to the beta builder?
It is very visual and helps people easily forward the email. I miss it!

part of it is probably user comfort. but the new templates don't have the "forward to a friend" option any more which is VERY important for hour holiday newsletter. Also, the new template doesn't let you change size on the image the same way. I might upload images that are different sizes, but want them to all be 120x120 in the actual newsletter. Older templates let you change the size simply by typing the width into the bottom right corner.
Please add Forward to a Friend Button that can be used in text Please add underline highlighted text function
The forward to friend option is not available in the Email campaigns. More options are included in the Autoresponder email campaigns as opposed to the actual email campaigns. The email campaigns should have the same options as the Autoresponder email campaigns. Also, the instructions for adding the "Forward Friend Option" to email campaigns in the help & tips is absolutely incorrect and should be revised.
