The best part of reading is sometimes sharing what you read with others. And it's easy to share what you've read or uploaded on Scribd!
Sharing Scribd Content From the Scribd App
Imagine you've just finished a book and you want to make sure your friends know how good it is and where they can read it, too. Well it's really easy to do directly from the Scribd app on your mobile device! Just open up the title, select the three vertical dots in the upper righthand corner, go to 'Share', and numerous options will pop up that are available to you. A representative sample of how you'll be able to share the book from Scribd is below but the options will be based on the apps that you personally have on your own device. Just from the app you can tell all your friends and followers how great a book was to make sure it's on their list of what to read next.
You can also share your favorite quotes from books directly from Scribd's mobile app. First, hold your finger down on the text that you want to select until the cursor appears, make sure the whole quote you want to share is highlighted. 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’. On either platform, your sharing options will again vary based on what apps you have installed on your own mobile device.
Sharing Scribd Content From the Scribd website
We also make it easy to like a title on Facebook, tweet it to all your Twitter followers, or pin it to a board on Pinterest all directly on the Scribd website. You can even get a link to some titles to embed it in a blog or your own website!
From the reading pages of the title, select the three vertical dots in the upper right hand corner to show the options menu and select your preferred sharing method under the "Share this title" section.
Another option you could go with is to 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. But wait, there's more! We've recently added a new feature to our website that allows you to customize the look of your favorite sharable quotes from books on Scribd! To use this feature, highlight the quote that you'd like to dress up and select "Share Quote" from the menu that appears:
A box will appear where you can then choose the background for your selected quote:
Select the background that strikes your fancy, then click "Next" on the bottom right-hand corner, and you'll then have the option to share it on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or download the image you've created to share as you see fit!
Whether it's a title that you just adore that you want others to check out or something that you've uploaded and wish to share with your friends and followers, it's easy to get the right people to the right place to be able to enjoy it on Scribd! Remember, sharing is caring, so make sure you're being generous and informing all your friends about the amazing books that await them on Scribd.
