I can re-tweet on Twitter. I heard Facebook has similar features. How can I do this ?

It isn't quite the same as re-tweeting. There are 2 related options shown underneath posts: Like and Share.

Like: This will add a comment to your news feed saying "<you> likes <title>". It is only a link to the original post - it doesn't add the actual content to your profile/feed.

Share: It doesn't work for a regular status posting, only if it is a link someone else has posted. Underneath the post, with Comment and Like there will be a Share link. This will have it show as a post from you with "via <name>" to indicate the original post came from someone else.
