I can share links for questions via mail, Twitter and Facebook. But what about identi.ca?
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.
