Facebook has launched a Send button. This button is expected to improve the functionality of Facebook Groups as well as replace the classic “email to a friend” button.
The Send Button will allow your readers to send your content to their friends. People will have the option to send your URL in an inbox message to their Facebook friends, to the group wall of any Facebook group they are a member of, and as an email to any email address.
While the Like Button allows users to share your content with all of their friends, the Send Button allows them to send your URL in a message to their Facebook friends, to the group wall of one of their Facebook groups, and as an email to any email address.
The message will include a link to the URL specified in the send button, along with a title, image, and short description of the link. You can specify what is shown for the title, image, and description by using Open Graph meta tags.
You can also get a combined Like and Send button. You can implement the send button on its own, but if you also want a Like button on your site, you can simply add send=true as an attribute to the Like button. This will render the Like button and Send button next to each other. For more on how to do it, visit Facebook.
If you use WordPress, you can also install the send Button easily with this Facebook Send Button WordPress Plugin.
