#1

I would like to make a social media share button on my website.

Only the share button must contain specific social meta data.
On my site (where i want the share buttons)
Below each image i want to have a share icon. This should be for twitter, linkedin and facebook.
But the share icon must use specific meta data which I will fill in.
Who can help me with this against a small fee?

Kind regards

Hi woltros

This is the standard url link to share - just not sure what/where you want to add your meta-data. Obviously on Twitter easy as you could use hashtags the others slightly more complex as need to 'delve; into their api’s and create an app to actually post to an individuals timeline, but these buttons will/do share.

Facebook

<a href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=THE HREF YOU NEED" target="_blank" title="Share on Facebook">
Facebook
</a>

Google+

<a href="https://plus.google.com/share?url=THE HREF YOU NEED" target="_blank" title="Share on Google+">
Google+
</a>

LinkedIn
<a href="http://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&amp;url=THE HREF YOU NEED" target="_blank" title="Share on Linkedin">LinkedIn </a>

Twitter
<a href="https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=The%20text20you%20want%20to%20%20post%20plugin&amp;hashtags=kwikBitz" target="_blank" title="Share on Twitter">Twitter</a>

i would like to add specific meta date on each share button i add below each image, something like this:



#4
<meta name="twitter:title" content="MINE TITEL">
  <meta name="twitter:description" content="MINE DESCRIPTION.">
  <meta name="twitter:image" content="MINE SPECIFIC IMAGE">

Whats the purpose of the meta data?

In this case when you share the link, twitter will create a social media ‘twittercard’ with the data you put in teh meta data.

Got it, am playing with the twitter api a bit later, I’ll update you
