To help users share a website URL with other people, you can offer them shortcuts to do this. For example you can give the user options to copy the URL or share it via Twitter, Facebook or WhatsApp (if they have the app).

To pop open the URL sharing menu, run the code below (in this example we’re sharing a link to a Google map).

// A simple way to share a URL
Fliplet.Communicate.shareURL('https://maps.google.com/?addr=EC2A+4DN');

On desktop browsers it’s also possible to share the URL with a message for the recipient. You can do this with the following code:

// Add an optional message for apps that support the sharing a URL with a message
Fliplet.Communicate.shareURL({
  url: 'https://maps.google.com/?addr=EC2A+4DN',
  message: 'Drop by and say hi!'
});
