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?

    Hi Linnea,

    Thank you for sharing that video. Wow, I feel like I’m in on some privileged information. For once, I know about a change in facebook before they “spring” it on us. (I also see a lot of not so subtle marketing going on Chris’ site, which I guess isn’t all bad. We have to let people know what we do if they will ever be able to benefit from it, right?) I’ll be back to see what other great information you have to share.

    Another sharing feature is on constant Contact emails – where they have all kinds of share buttons now. But the new send button is nice because it can be private. Thanks again,

    Hi Linnea, Facebook are always so far ahead of the curve – it is a marketers paradise :) I think the new ‘send’ button is a great idea. Sometimes you do want to share information a little more selectively than just plastering it all over facebook. Anything that helps to get the word out has got to be good news for us as marketers.
    thanks for the heads up :)

    Hi Linnea, I do find the FB share button very useful. A few times I have used it to send someone information I thought would be useful to them. Great post and thanks for enlightening people to this great tool.

    Thanks for giving us this useful information. I have used the share button a few times and it is awesome when I have something I find to share with someone.
    Thanks again,
    Donna Merrill

    Linnea, what a great tip. I have used this a few times and it is just awesome! When you want to share something you come across with someone you know is interested, it is so easy to do. Thanks for posting this.

    Excellent tip, Linnea.

    Facebook is constantly changing and adding features, so it’s good to have you out here to keep us on our toes.

    The FB Send sounds like a really useful tool. I’m jumping on it, so again, thanks for the tip!

    Love the Share Button, If I feel the content is something that I agree with and would be something that my friend would like to see I always use the Share Button.


  8. Yorinda May 4, 2011 at 11:38 pm #

    Hi Linnea,

    that was interesting information.
    I didn’t know about the send button and the choice to send it to either email.
    It is amazing about all the new things on facebook.

    To your success

    Hi Donna,

    You are quite welcome. It’s fun to find and share something that’s hot and fresh. Are you going to give it a try? You are also right on about Chris’ site but I’ve learned to overlook/ignore it myself because he does have some good stuff. Interesting note on Constant Contact. I don’t use that myself but I’m sure that many of my readers do so thanks for sharing that with us.

    I look forward to your return.

  10. Linnea May 5, 2011 at 8:59 am #

    Hi Donna,

    I’m glad to hear you find the share button a useful tool. It sounds like you might be happy enough with that to just keep using it rather than try the new “send” button? Or perhaps it is the new button that you’ve already had some experience with? It certainly does seem to be a wonderful new tool.

  11. Linnea May 5, 2011 at 9:01 am #

    Hey again, Donna.

    Great to see you back so soon. I love seeing someone who has jumped right on a new tool and gives us feedback. You are welcome for the post and thank you for the feedback! Hope to see you again soon.

  12. Linnea May 5, 2011 at 9:04 am #

    Hi David,

    It’s as much fun for me to find and share new tools (if not more so) as it is for you to read about them. Great to hear you are jumping on it and would love to hear your thoughts after you’ve had a chance to give it a whirl. Please do come back and let us know what you think.

  13. Linnea May 5, 2011 at 9:06 am #

    Hi Bill,

    Yes, the Share button is a very handy feature as well and I absolutely agree with you that it still need to be content that you think your folks would be interested in. It just doesn’t pay to “share” for the sake of sharing. Thanks for your comment.

  14. Linnea May 5, 2011 at 9:16 am #

    Hi Yorinda,

    I know, isn’t it fun? FB has so many nooks and crannies to explore, it could most easily be a full time job in and of itself. I suppose that is the flip side of FB…not to get too lost in it that you don’t get other things done. All in moderation. I do love the idea of being able to send something more privately though and am grateful for this new option. Thanks for your comment.

  15. Chester Delameter May 5, 2011 at 9:16 am #


    Thanks for keeping us up to date with all the changes on Facebook. This looks like another great tool to use.

    Keep up the good work!

    Have a Great Day

    I LOVE hot off the press stuff Linnea! Thanks so much for sharing this with us. Not many people are giving when it comes to “secrets” like these. Chris was so enthusiastic and I know why :-) This is breaking news that we can implement right away for our web and blog sites today.

    I’ll definitely be adding this feature to my blog asap. Next time I visit here I know you will have one too since at the moment my guess is this is on your to-do list :-)

    GREAT stuff! Thanks again!

    Hi Jaclyn,

    You are so very welcome…and I LOVE your enthusiasm. It really is a lot of fun finding new little tools and gizmos to use, isn’t it? It’s great that you are going to implement it as well. When you’ve had a chance to use it for a bit, please do come back and let us know what you learn. I can’t wait to hear what you think about it.

  21. Linnea May 10, 2011 at 9:27 am #

    Hi Rick,

    Would that there was…I could really use a plugin like that. Now there is a product idea for you. Let me know when you have that one ready to go. :)

  22. Linnea May 10, 2011 at 9:33 am #

    Hi Steve,

    Great to hear from a fan of Chris’. I admit that I don’t get to all of his stuff however, what I have read, I have found to be good quality information. I agree that the small tweaks can and will certainly add up. Just keep testing and hang on to the positive changes while eliminating those that don’t pay off.

  23. marquita herald May 10, 2011 at 4:44 pm #

    Great tip Linnea – I saw Chris’ video as well. The great news is that there’s already a WordPress plugin available for this little send tab – just download and activate. I love WordPress!

    Hi Andy,

    Precisely what I thought! It seems like that often comes up and now it’s quite do-able. Enjoy~

    Hi Linnea,
    Not so long ago I discovered facebook and was amazed at what goes on there.
    Recently got a like page another great tool for us to use as marketers.
    Now another discovery thanks to you…it would be nice to be able to share things with friends without posting on the wall.

    Great post and thanks for keeping us up to date.

    Hi Linnea, it’s great to be able to select our facebook friends or other friends, that we send information to, instead of it randomly going in any friends newsfeeds. It’s exciting to see all the changes Facebook make to their site! bye for now, Julieanne

    Linnea, wonderful and useful post…

    I have used this with great results. I found it was very useful when I needed information to review with various groups I am involved with. We all have the same information and brainstorm.

    You have given us usable content time and time again. Your a true mentor and coach in our industry.

    Linnea, I look forward in your next great share.

  38. Linnea June 16, 2011 at 9:50 am #

    Hi William,

    Thank you so much for the kind words. I do what I can for you and thank you for sharing your experience with FB Send. That sounds like a perfect application for the button and one that I will use myself. Thanks again for your comments.

  39. Linnea June 16, 2011 at 9:58 am #

    Hi Beverly,

    You could put it on each of your posts (and/or pages) to help others share your information. You could use it very much like the like the “Like” or “Share” buttons, the big difference being that you get the option to share privately via email with the send button. One option is to install the plugin, and let it place the button for you. Hope this helps.

  40. Linnea June 16, 2011 at 10:09 am #

    Hey Tonya,

    Thanks so much. It’s really rewarding and fun for me, too learning about new tools you can use to further your business. I’m more than happy to share what I find. Thanks for leaving a comment.

    Thanks Linnea.

    Yes, it is interesting trying to keep up with everything. Gosh, just between Facebook and Google, one could spend their life. Having the plugin available definitely simplifies implementation in this case. That seems to be a requirement for to achieve widespread adoption these days. Thanks for stopping by.
