"share on facebook" and "post to myspace"

Postby moose_goose on Mon Oct 20, 2008 9:33 am

I'd like to put those share on myspace & facebook buttons on my website, and have come across the directions and stuff for them.. but I find that my mind just cannot grasp what to replace what with and where in the html thingies that they supply.

Is anyone here willing to help me with that? :) Pretty please... feel free to pm me!!

These are the links I've found:

http://www.new.facebook.com/share_partners.php

Thanks :)

For facebook:

Copy and paste one of the code blocks into the html file you are editing... place it wherever you want the facebook link or button to be on your site.

Then in the code you just pasted, find the word "url" and type in the web address you want to be shared. Facebook doesn't determine it automatically, and here's why:

For example, you might have this button in your sidebar on every page on your site... mysite.com, mysite.com/services, mysite.com/links, etc. When folks click the link or button, do you want them to be sharing just mysite.com from every page? Or the specific page within your site that they're currently on?

So you might put http://www.mysite.com where url used to be for each page, or you might put http://www.mysite.com/services on the services page, for example.

Does this make more sense?

Thanks Joshua... that does make more sense to me. I'm going to try to put them on my site in the next few days.
