How to Add Link to Be Able to "Share" on Social Media
(May add to all digital communications -- email, webpage, Word doc, PDF, etc.)

  1. TWITTER HYPERLINK
    First, on the following Twitter link, alter the part in orange to be the web page that you are wanting to share on Twitter. Be VERY careful not to alter any of the other text.

    https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=Tennessee+State+University&url=http://tnstatenewsroom.com/archives/20184#.VA82suQGJrA.twitter&related=

  2. FACEBOOK HYPERLINK
    Then, in the following Facebook link, alter the part in orange to be the web page that you are wanting to share on Facebook:

    https://www.facebook.com/login.php?next=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fsharer%2Fsharer.php%3Fu%3Dhttp://tnstatenewsroom.com/archives/20184%2523.VA82VZK_FWc.facebook&display=popup

  3. Then, copy the following two links and paste them onto your email (or webpage, Word Doc, etc.).

    share on Twitter  |  share on Facebook

  4. Then, right-click each of the “share” links you just pasted ….and alter each one’s hyperlink to be the hyperlink that you created earlier in these instructions.

  5. Then, run a test first before sending to a mass of folks.  Send it to yourself first…and see if it lets you share on your own Twitter account and on your Facebook account.

  6. If your test is successful, send out your REAL communication!
