Sharing buttons are built in with every piece of interactive content you create or embed with Opinion Stage. The buttons are included in the embed automatically. The main share buttons are Facebook and Twitter:
The built in share buttons – supporting Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Reddit – are a great way to drive more traffic to your site. Whenever someone shares through an embedded piece of interactive content, they’re getting more links out there back to your site, where the content is embedded. When you click the "..." button, you get sharing buttons for additional social networks:
Of course, just having the buttons isn’t enough. Great polls, great trivia quizzes, and great personality quizzes are all great motivators for sharing. If you’re looking to increase social sharing, keep that in mind and make sure to end the poll or quiz with something that will really invite and encourage readers to use those share buttons and share your content.
To configure social sharing:
- Edit your item (e.g. poll, quiz, etc)
- Open the social sharing settings on the right side-bar
- Configure the social sharing settings (e.g. display/don't display sharing bar, etc)
