Improving Sharing Buttons visibility


#1

I like the layout and visibility that sharing buttons has on this site. They are at the top-right. One click, and share.

Maybe, would be great to implement a plug in in discourse to enable something like that.

This would help to ignite communities in some way. It’s something to test, no data to support this point sorry.

You do realize there is sharing capabilities already built into Discourse right?

Yes, I do know. My point is to give more visibility to this capabilities, to increase the usage.

Here’s a hint: Making it more prominent isn’t going to increase the usage of the buttons. People will share if the content is interesting, and they will just copy the URL.
