While we mostly see "tweet" and "like" on a lot of websites, it's become obvious that in a mobile-first world messenger apps such as Facebook Messenger (over 1 billion users) and WhatsApp have become the largest sharing apps out there - thanks to dark social. 

 

Buzzfeed said as early as 2014. that iPhone users are clicking their new WhatsApp button more than Twitter's, with the platform supported on iOS and Android. Most media sites, especially here in Europe and internationally, have a Whatsapp button.

 

Social Media Today:

"According to the latest State of the Internet report by Mary Meeker, chat apps like Snapchat, WhatsApp and the Chinese WeChat actually encourage more communication - and hence sharing - than more broadcast-focused communication services like Facebook and Twitter."

 

So what does MD Pro Share need?

  • WhatsApp Share button
  • Messenger Share button

*gives standing ovation*

 

Great pitch, I totally agree with you about WhatsApp and hadn't considered Facebook before. I see big uses for both.

 

The next MD update will be adding the LinkedIn button, and I'll see how these 2 buttons fit into the mix as well. At the bare minimum I can write up a custom filter to add the buttons through your child theme, but they seem important enough to include.

 

I'll keep you posted about this, thanks for the great suggestion!

Although not directly related, I would like to know if it's possible to add Snapchat thru the Social Media Menu.
