Thinking through a “share with Mastodon” button that anyone could embed on a website. It’s a harder problem than a “share with Twitter” button, because

This is a good idea. It’d be neat to get fediverse services, including lemmy, supporting this. We could make cross site interactions so much easier.


I love my Mastodon plugin, but wish I could have a Lemmy plugin to easily share stuff. It would be much more constructive than sharing on Mastodon too, as the format for sharing content that is made by someone else is more suited to Lemmy in my opinion.

This is why I think using a rel link built in to the software is better than an extension. Each service builds the sharing feature in instead of third-party devs having to build extensions for each service and users having to install an extension for every service they use.
