For science! Help us test...

We have just added social networking share buttons to the Submission view page. So right next to the "Fav" star buttons on every submission, and on every journal, there are now buttons to quickly link a submission/journal via Twitter, Facebook, etc.

Could everyone give it a go and let me know your experience? Please comment here what networking site you shared the link on and how it appears etc.

This feature will be officially announced as part of the next update once this testing is complete.

Thanks for your help!

Sweet! Thanks for that. Is there a link to your page on that site where I could see? I've never used Stumbleupon! :O

Cool. Argh I'll have to get a Facebook account now. It's about time I guess! :D What was the journal/submission you shared?

Same as previous.
Nice little piece by Pac of Red looking 'annoyed'.

Don't feel bad about the whole Facebook thing. I literally broke down and got mine day before yesterday.
I figured that it'd be, if nothing else, a way to keep my 'name' safe on there.

Let me know if you get a profile, or put up an IB Community page there. I'd like to 'like','friend', and whatever it is the the kids do on there. XD

Yeah that's probably a good idea. Thanks again for your help! Hey I turn 31 in a few days. Am I a grownup yet? D:

I'll have to take a closer look to see.
Please off your clothes, sit on the table, and the Doctor will be with you momentarily.

Starling, they have like.. fan pages or whatever they're called for those who want to have something other users can "like". Good way of spreading the word about IB, perhaps. ^_^

Is there or will there be an option to turn off the Share buttons on my page, journals, and submissions? :o

I'm curious why you'd want that? o.o; The people using the social buttons would have it posted on their accounts, not yours (if you were worried about privacy or something).

The Share buttons appear on all submissions and journals, no matter who posted them.  I can go into your stuff and share your submissions and journals on my Twitter or Facebook.  I don't feel right about allowing other people to share links to my stuff on all these other sites.

I don't know.  Maybe I'm just a little over-protective. :o

I see what you mean. But those buttons just make it easier to do what people can already do, which is simply to mention your work on their Twitter, Facebook, etc. So not having the buttons wouldn't really stop those things from being possible. But I will consider making it an on/off option in account settings. Wouldn't be too hard to do!

I just don't like attention. ^_^;

I'm really shy like that.  I know the fact that I share artwork I've commissioned and stories I've written really goes against that whole not-wanting-attention thing, but that's how I am. :o

Sweet! Nothing left to test eh? How about a 'share user' option as well? The same icons, but maybe under the "Support this artist" text on our pages. Then again, our profile URLs aren't exactly long ^^;

Anyhow! Another great development! How cool, hip and trendy do you feel now?! ;D lol

Actually I have a task in our list already to add them to the Profile/User page so you can share users. :D Might be added next week!
