Exporting to Social Media

I was of the opinion that DPL was a challenge to Lightroom where you are not tied into a recurring annual contract fee. So I’m curious about the export to Lightroom feature, is DPL7 meant to be an add-on to Lightroom?
Also when choosing to export to an application, this takes me to my downloads folder!
Is there a way of utilising this feature so it links to a social media application to export directly to say X, Facebook or similar?
