Facebook wants you to post more statuses and more photos/videos. Earlier this month, we told you about a test the company was running that pushed a notification to mobile devices asking users to “tell friends what’s on your mind” by posting an update.

Now, it looks like Facebook is looking for more ways to make sure people are still creating content on the site.

Facebook is testing a new button in its top blue bar that allows users to post a status or a photo/video quickly, from any page on the site.

Here are some screenshots of the test courtesy of Mashable, who first spotted it.

When you click it, a familiar lightbox pops up:

It’s important to note that the user who saw the test obviously doesn’t have Facebook Graph Search or the new look news feed – two new products that Facebook is rolling out very slowly. Has anyone who has Graph Search or the new news feed seen this test?
