Is Your Share Widget Broken? Are You Making It Easy To Share Content On Your Web Site?

On Smallbiztechnology.com I use ShareThis to enable my readers (that’s you) to share content with others – be it through social networks or email. However, I know many people don’t have the ability to share content on their web sites, those who have share widgets on their web sites often don’t configure the sharing ability properly.

I’ve been to many web sites and clicked “share” on Twitter or something and find that the sharing link does not work or does not work properly.

I encourage you, work with your web designer to properly implement sharing on your web site and ensure your readers can share when they want to and how they want to.

ShareThis recently launched ShareNow, an upgrade from ShareThis. According to their web site, ShareNow is a new social tool which allows users to continually share content to their social network timeline. You must first enable ShareNow by authorizing ShareThis on a social network. Once this has been enabled, ShareNow posts content that you browse on a website to your social network timeline. ShareNow gives users more control over their content. You can continually share, remove shares, re-share or stop continually sharing. If you choose to stop continually sharing, you will still have the option to one-click to share.
