Social Bookmarking on the Daily Paul

You might have noticed the Share/Save button at the bottom of every content node:

Share this

Here's what you can do with it:

Hover over the button to bring up a pop-up window that shows you sharing options. There are three tabs.

Social Bookmarking (Share/Save)

Social bookmarking is basically saving links and pages you like to a site (like Facebook) where you can share those links with others.

If you're into that, go ahead and share DP articles you like with others to spread the word.

Some sites let you save the link for your own personal reference without having to share it with others.

There's Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, Digg, Google, MySpace, Reddit, Yahoo, Microsoft, StumbleUpon and a whole lot more (click on the down arrow).


You can email the current page's link to anyone you like.

  • You can use Google/Yahoo/Hotmail/AOL.
  • Or click on Any Email to use an external service to send the link by email.
  • Or click on the Email Application button (with the icons) to send the link with your own Outlook/Thunderbird/other desktop mail application.


This just reminds you of the key combination to bookmark the page in your browser.


The URL saved to your bookmarking site will be the "short URL": I.e, instead of
www .dailypaul .com/157287/social-bookmarking-on-the-daily-paul
It'll be

The short URL automatically redirects to the longer one. (Try it!)

Also, the button with the popup is shown at the bottom of every node. But for this node only, the popup is only on the button at the top of this node. You can still click the button to go to a page where you can do your sharing.

Does anyone use this?

replies here will help determine if we want to keep this.

Don't use it. Glad its' been recently moved, too.

I like it and would use it

I like it and would use it more if when sharing on Facebook it didn't include the most recent comment on the post. The content of the post should be included in the share, not a users comment. I don't know if i'm explaining that very well. I can get a screen shot if you want.

I do not use it, and, if you

I do not use it, and, if you want to keep it I SERIOUSLY want it moved to the right side and away from the comment option. It gets in the way with its pop-up almost every time I comment on an article. Drives me nuts!

I haven't use it at all

but if I did, I would only use the email one. Right now, I just send the link out to friends, with my email already open.


Ive been b*tching for some time for these updates. Thanks Jon or Nystrom. Ill be linking directly here so much easier. Whew....

I didnt know if it was someone else or you under a diff screen name!

I would recommend making it BIGGER

Could we play around with making the Share/Save button just a bit bigger? I think more viewers would notice it and be tempted to share info... Non DP members also can do this too, right?

Sent e-mail to myself and it worked. So I guess if anyone wants to contact me they can compose a letter in the comments and send. Lord. I feel like I'm operating with both hands tied behind my back.

You have to know the e-mail

You have to know the e-mail of the person you're emailing, right? It's not like you can just spam random people, or is it?

I guess if one has tons of e-mail addresses

someone could send out a bucketload? I just sent this article to myself to see if it would go through and it did. :)

P.S. Jon, I've seen at least two other comments this week about folks not being able to mail (receive) from DP contact. FYI
