Facebook “Send”

Facebook SendBreaking news that you’ll love!

Have you heard about the Facebook “Send” button? It allows for integrating email with Facebook for sharing which means that you can now not only “Like” great content, but send it via email when you want to share the content more privately.

When using “Send” you have the option of either sending to a friend’s Facebook mail or to an email account such as Gmail. How great is that?

There are already a number of blogs that have picked up on this news and are sharing the information but here is a great start…Chris Farrell posted a video on his blog that demonstrates the “Send” button use and installation. I think you’ll really like it so go check it out right now and then come back and let me know what you think.

Got it? It’s really very cool, yes? So tell me, are you running right off to put a “Send” button or perhaps a combination “Like/Send” buttons on your site?

    This looks like a cool idea! I am only seeing your blog post now… and I have never seen this feature on anyone’s blog yet. But it looks like a great way to get your blog content out there where more people can see it.

    Hi Linnea,
    Yes, It is very cool! Plus, Chris made it look very simple to put it where you want it. Now I know how to use it when I see it somewhere.
    Thanks for sharing this neat little button!

    Hi Willena,

    Glad to have been of some help. Assuming you will be giving it a try, I would suggest that you first try the plugin that a few others have commented on. It’s more than likely the easiest way to implement “Send” as long as it doesn’t conflict with other plugins on your site. Let us know what you try.

    Thank you for keeping us current with the latest changes in Facebook. Facebook is always pushing the envelope and hand seeing their services. This latest edition really will be nice to have the ability to send that e-mail message directly so quick and easily. Thank you for helping me to stay on top of the ever-changing environment we work and live in through Facebook.

    Hi Jim,

    You are most welcome. I agree the button is nice to have for sharing tidbits with select friends. Facebook is continually innovating. That certainly has contributed to their success. Between Facebook and Google, it seems there is always something new to explore. Enjoy~

    Why am I always so late in finding out about these new gadgets? Mental note – visit Linnea’s blog more often.

    I though I would try it out and send this onto someone but I can’t find the button, where have you hidden it?

    Hey Trevor,

    Great catch! I wondered when someone might call me on that one. I’ve implemented elsewhere but not here just yet.
    Thanks for kicking me a bit…I’ll get to it. Hope to see you again soon so you can see it.
