Share Ancestry.com Finds on Facebook and Twitter
Posted by Allison
Ancestry.com added a nifty new feature yesterday: You can now share records with your Facebook friends or Twitter followers in one click.
Simply click the Share This Record link in the Page Tools box on the record page (where you land after clicking a search result, not the image viewer), then select Facebook or Twitter from the drop-down menu.
Type a status update message and submit—the record and a link to it will show up on your Facebook wall or in your Twitter feed, like this census page I shared on Facebook.
For now, the feature only works with historical record images. But if response warrants, VP of Product Eric Shoup says it will be rolled out to photos, stories and other areas of the site.
