Sometimes, the best part of reading is sharing what you read with others. And it's easy to share what you've read or uploaded on Scribd!

Sharing content

From our app

Imagine you've just finished a great book and you want to share it with your friends. It's easy to do directly from the Scribd app on your mobile device!

Just open up the title, then:

  1. Select the three vertical dots in the upper right corner to open the menu.
  2. Go to 'Share'.
  3. You’ll see your sharing options pop up! The sharing options available will be based on which apps you have installed on your device.

From our website

We also make it easy to share a title on Facebook, tweet it to all your Twitter followers, or pin it to a board on Pinterest, all directly from the Scribd website.

You’ll find sharing options available on the About page for each title, below the book cover and other options such as “Save for Later”:


Alternatively, from within the reading view:

  1. Select the three vertical dots in the upper right corner to show the options menu.
  2. Under “Share this title,” choose your preferred sharing method.

As another option, you can always share the link of the title from the Scribd website. Finding the URL is as easy as:

  1. Selecting the content you want to share
  2. Copying the web address in your browser's location bar at the top (highlighted below)
  3. Pasting the link into: an email, a blog, Facebook, Twitter, other websites, etc.

And that's it: instant sharing.

Sharing a quote

From our app

You can also share your favorite quotes from books directly from Scribd's mobile app.

  1. Hold your finger down on the text that you want to select until the cursor appears.
  2. Make sure the whole quote you want to share is highlighted.
  3. On iOS devices, you’ll then select the 'Share' option to be presented with sharing options. On Android devices, highlight your quote, tap the three dots in the upper right corner, then select ‘Share’.

Note: On either platform, your sharing options will vary based on which apps you have installed on your own mobile device.


From our website

The “Share Quote” feature on our website allows you to customize the look of your favorite shareable quotes from books on Scribd!
