Recently, I ran across a web page I wanted to share with my Facebook and Twitter followers. I looked on the page for a share tool that would let me easily post the piece.
Here’s what one might look like.
Unfortunately, no share tools were on the page I wanted to share. That meant I would have to copy and paste the desired web address into my various social media accounts manually. I really liked the web page and was motivated to share it … this time. Usually, in a case like this, I pass.
The most important share content buttons for you to have are Facebook, Twitter, Facebook Like, and Google Plus. There are numerous other buttons to use like Digg, StumbleUpon, and LinkedIn.
Try to know which tools your audience uses. When in doubt, err on the side of using more share tools rather than less.
Your web developer will have tools that can be plugged into all your web pages. If not, you can go to AddThis.com
and get some code that you can embed on your pages yourself.
