Social Network Sharing
Updated over a week ago

Encourage more views to your document with this simple to use module; simply add to a page and let your visitors do the talking! When selected, they can share your document on social media for a wider audience to see.

How to add a Social Network Sharing module

  • Navigate to a Document.

  • Select ‘Interactivity’ for the Version of the Document that you want to work on.

The Version will then open in Interactivity mode and the Interactivity palette can be found to the right of your page.

  • Select the ‘Sharing’ module type from the ‘Add Interactivity' palette.

  • Select the 'Social Network Sharing’ option.

  • Click and drag out the area to add to your page - this is the clickable area that the visitor will select to share the document to social media..

  • Select the social media platform of your choice.


The Settings palette will activate when any module on a page is selected. You can then apply settings, such as the link target.

1. General


The 'Title' field is set by default, but it's important to update it to something unique that reflects the interactivity - for example, 'Share on LinkedIn'. Descriptive names make it easier to identify the interactivity in your document, which is particularly helpful if you're using lots of the same module type.


A tooltip is a short piece of text which appears when a cursor is positioned over a module. It can be used to provide a brief description or explanation of the module - for example 'Share job vacancies of LinkedIn'.


Specify if you would like the link to open in a new window or the current one (which is where they are viewing your document).

💡 Set the Target as 'New Window' to ensure visitors don't lose their place in the document.

2. Accessibility

Focus Outline Colour

If Accessibility has been enabled for your document, this option can be used to choose the colour of the Focus Outline Colour. Focus Outline Colour is the colour of the outline that displays around the piece of Interactivity being viewed when a visitor uses the Tab key to navigate around a document.

3. Clickable Area

Position X & Y

Adjust the position of the clickable area. 'X' sets the position of the left edge and 'Y' sets the top edge.

Width & Height

Adjust the width and height of the clickable area. The size is measured in pts.

Link to Panel

Link the module to a Panel in your document. Once linked, the module will move with the Panel if it is repositioned or resized.

What happens next?

When your visitors view your document all they need to do is click to share.

💡 Try using a List Panel to add social media icons to your document, then place this module type over the top to make them interactive.
