Sharing is caring, as they say, and this especially rings true if you run a community of users on a Multisite network.
Adding the capability for users to share posts, images, links, site activity and more can help your users connect with each other and build a sense of, well, connectedness. What better way to bond than through the sharing of funny cat memes in status updates and private messages about cats (of course)?
Helping like-minded members of your site to make friends and share what they care about isn’t just heartwarming, it makes good business sense – it will help drive genuine user engagement and create a strong emotional connection with your site that your competition won’t be able to match.
For this Weekend WordPress Project I’ve put together a collection of our best plugins that you can activate right away to add sharing capabilities to your site, from sharing blog posts to displaying the most recent comments across your network and sending friend requests.
