New on WordPress.com: Sharing Buttons for WhatsApp, Telegram, and Skype

New sharing options from the world’s most popular messaging apps.

Our users — and your sites’ visitors — share millions of WordPress.com posts every day across social networks, and today we’re excited to announce sharing buttons for three more services: WhatsApp, Telegram, and Skype.

Here’s how to set up the new buttons:

  1. Go to My Sites → Sharing.
  2. Select the Sharing Buttons tab, and then Edit Sharing Buttons.
  3. Select any of the three new options (in addition to our many other sharing possibilities).

Learn more here, or watch this handy video:

Now, in addition to sharing on social platforms like Facebook and Twitter, you can share on some of the world’s most popular messaging apps.

We’re excited to offer these new buttons — and, as always, you can contact us in support if you have more questions.

    I don’t see it in my settings. Only the usual – FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Tumblr and Path.

      If you go to My Sites > Sharing, you’ll see a “Sharing Buttons” tab near the top of the page. Click on it, and you’ll see the option of adding more sharing buttons, including the new ones we recently announced.
