How to share an article with a friend

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Many times you would like to share a particular article with friends or family. I know this because you either tell me or you accidently send the entire email digest back to me when you are trying to forward it to friends!

Here's a relatively easy way to isolate one article and send it to someone.

Whether you are reading the email digest, or the web version - click the title of the story.

This should take you to the web version of the story.

Go to the "title" window at the top of the web page - the long, skinny window - and the URL for the story should appear.

If you started with the email version and the URL includes the words "Feed Burner" then click or double click the story title again.

The URL will be long, with most of the story title, and will end in .html

For example:
http://www.shorelineareanews.com/2013/02/artists-open-house-scheduled-for-march.html

Copy the URL, paste it into an email, and send it to your friends and family. It will appear as a live link they can click which will take them directly to the story.

Facebook has made it very easy to share stories. Click the title of the story, then the email icon and all you have to do is put in your friend's address and a note from you. Facebook puts the link in for you.
