I can share links for questions via mail, Twitter and Facebook. But what about identi.ca?
Share anywhere with your user ID. Copy the "link" below the question. The link to share anywhere would look like this:
I’ve tried to create such a button (not for Stack Exhange, but for other sites). It didn’t work well, because Identi.ca itself was not set up to let it work well.
- If you happen to be signed into Identi.ca, it does work, albeit a little clunkily.
- If you’re not, what you’d expect is a login/signup screen, and once you’re logged in or signed up, you’d expect a “post message” screen with the link text already there in the message. That’s not what you get. What you get is an incomprehensible error message. Not helpful. I don’t expect Stack Exhcange to add “Share on Identi.ca” buttons till Identi.ca themselves tidy up a bit.
So push Identi.ca first, then come back to pushing Stack Exchange.
Things may have changed: maybe, when you talk to Identi.ca, you’ll find that they’ve already fixed this problem. If so, please do let me know.
