See https://developers.facebook.com/docs/sharing/android#links - the correct return type is ShareLinkContent.Builder.
This may be related to or a duplicate of https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=24753.

As a workaround, please use JavaCast (eg: `SetContentUrl (..).JavaCast<ShareLinkContent.Builder> ()`)

This one's a little bit more tricky to fix right now as ShareLinkContent.Builder subclasses ShareContent.Builder which is where the actual SetContentUrl method implementation lives.

Even if we fix SetContentUrl to return a ShareContent.Builder, that still won't get you the ShareLinkContent.Builder back you are hoping for.

We will need to look at some options for addressing this, or wait until we get proper support for binding generic types in the future.
