Setting Shareable to ON turns on the share icon on the content card in the member’s mobile app or web experience, and opens up the Share Message dialogue for the Program Studio user.
Setting Shareable to ON allows the content to be shared publicly outside of your program to the location of the user's choice. Shareable content is no longer limited to a read-only status in the web experience and mobile apps.
From the mobile apps, members can share to (or via) any mobile application that has compatible native sharing. For more information, refer to What App Can I Share to From the Mobile App?
The web experience leverages either an API or native sharing connection, depending on your configuration. This means that users can either share to just Twitter and LinkedIn (API) or Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook (native). With both API and native sharing users can still connect their social accounts for native engagement data purposes.
Content can be set as Shareable while creating the card or while editing a card, just slide the indicator for Shareable from OFF to ON.
Please note, the Shareable setting does not prevent users from downloading content or taking screenshots. The Shareable setting only controls the share icon presented to users within the program.
After setting a post to shareable, you can craft a suggested share message for users. This share message can be edited by users and will be suggested to users depending on which network they share to and which configuration your program (native or API for web).
We recommend using less than 280 characters. Your share message can be longer than 280 characters, but may be cut off by the social network. Note that the character count includes the share message, link (23 characters), and appended hashtag (if applicable), as well as spaces between each letter.
Note: The prepopulated share message and appended hashtag may only appear when sharing to Twitter. Facebook policy prohibits the use of prepopulated share messages, and LinkedIn appears to be implementing a similar policy (the exact behavior with LinkedIn depends on the user's device and LinkedIn mobile app version).
Depending on your program's configuration (native or API sharing) and the target social media platform, the share message may pre-populate with the program’s appended hashtag(s).
