More ways to share

Starting today there is a new way for your readers to share the posts on your blog with friends. This feature allows you to add sharing functionality from a range of services to the bottom of your blog posts.

Here’s a quick video introduction:

To begin with we have the following services for you to choose from. If there is a service missing from the list, don’t worry! You can add your own custom services as well.

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Press This
  • Reddit
  • Digg
  • StumbleUpon
  • Email to a friend
  • Print

You can control these new options in your dashboard by going to Settings > Sharing.

You can choose which of these services you want to display and in a range of different formats. If you have the custom CSS upgrade you can go even further and choose your own icons and layout. We have also added stats for all activity around this feature so you will be able to see what content people are sharing and on what services. Check out the sharing support article for more information on getting setup. Note: We will also be releasing this as a WordPress.org plugin next week.

Update: This is now available as a WordPress.org Plugin called Sharedaddy.
