So what is Share?
Share is basically a set of simple sharing buttons that offers visitors 1 click instant sharing of your content to their social media like Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter. Share is connected to 16 social services and it makes it super easy for visitors to share your amazing content with their friends, and then they share it, and they share it, and their friends share it and it goes on and on!
Without these sharing buttons, visitors would have to find your pages URL, copy it, go into their Facebook or Twitter, not get distracted by the funny cat photos, paste it, and share it that way. People don’t want to have to go through all that. They want it to be easy to share your content and thats why you need to start using Share!
