ShareOpenly is an easy way to share content to fediverse-friendly socials

Jon posted about his icon design for ShareOpenly, so I decided to add it to my blog too.

ShareOpenly is:

A “very easy way to share content to fediverse-friendly socials (mastodon, threads, cosocial, bluesky and micro.blog) to replace those share buttons of old.”

I’ve now implemented ShareOpenly on the blog which wasn’t exactly difficult as all that’s needed is a hyperlink:

https://shareopenly.org/share/?url={URL}&text={TEXT}

This made it easy to set up in my Statamic blog template:

<a href="https://shareopenly.org/share/?url={{permalink}}&text={{title}}" title="{{title}}">…</a>

To try and explain in a graphic what ShareOpenly does, I made a new SVG incorporating logos from the services it currently supports.

Thanks to Ben Werdmuller for creating ShareOpenly and Jon for his icon design. I hope ShareOpenly really catches on.
