Okay… I can bring this up with appropriate people, but I want input here first.


Wikinews needs to be bringing people in to read our stories, and the way I see some people (who are on this list) doing so is by posting to twitter and Facebook.


Many sites have a set of social sharing links at the bottom of an article. Is there anything stopping us from doing the same?


First possible objection – requires embedding of a link/webbug that lets them see who reads an article. Different from “who posts an article” by clicking on the ‘social bookmark’ button.

Second – can we per [[WN:FU]] justify hosting their logos locally?


Points to note:

Can we do what the BBC do? If you add one of their stories to Facebook the pop-up window allows to select from all images on the article page.
