Support » Plugin: Free Quotation » Social Sharing Functionality

  • Hi – just curious as to whether you’ve thought about adding in social sharing functionality via Twitter and Facebook to this. OR – if you know of anyone that has implemented it that has figured out how to combine something else with it to get that sharing to work.

    Any ideas/thoughts? Thanks!

    Hi!

    First – I have social feature in next step of plugin development (version 3.2). I want add option to post everyday quotation on Facebook fan-page.

    I think, that you expected something different – like “like button” for your visitors? If I think correctly it’s impossible to do, because user can like only webpage (valid URL) – not a part of webpage like quotation from them or one paragraph.

    If you meet solution that permit share part of website like paragraph on Facebook pleas send me a link to this website. It can help find solution 🙂

    Thanks for reply!

    Great that you’re thinking about this! Yes – I was thinking of the functionality so that the user/reader could share each individual quote to their own social networks. So every quote would have the little icons to share along with it…and if the user clicked it then it would grab the quote and share it.

    From a business perspective, that would give the broadest sharing and promoting of the site that the quote is showing up on. The end user sharing it to THEIR social networks so the site is getting spread out.

    From this article: http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/29544/The-Ultimate-Cheat-Sheet-for-Creating-Social-Media-Buttons.aspx – there are some comments in the post that talk about specific code.

    I have had developers use this in the past: http://www.addthis.com/ – and they were able to put specific sharing on individual items.

    I’ve seen this as an example of where you can see individual items with sharing features on each of them that pull in the title of the item:

    Not sure if any of that helps. If I find anything else that is a solution I’ll let you know!

    I’ll send you a link to my site to use as an example of your plug-in if you want when we launch too!

    It’s one big difference between your idea and this examples:
    http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/topics/topic_inspirational.html
    http://blog.hubspot.com/
    Everyone share button have own link to concrete post.

    Generally – it can be possible but we need to create individual page for every one quotation. I don’t think that this is interesting for more Free Quotation users – maybe I’m wrong? 🙂

    If we get individual link for everyone quotation, that solve the problem, and like button implementation will be very simple.

    OK – now I find solution similar to your proposal. I will think about this option in this weekend.

    First is Facebook, second Twitter.

    Oh great! Yes – that’s what I wasn’t sure of. I agree, doesn’t seem to make sense if you have to make a page out of every quote but if you can somehow isolate the quote to share.

    Am happy to help test out!
