How to integrate Netvibes sharing in your website
Last year, we introduced social features with the “Ginger” version of Netvibes. One of them, is the ability for users to share their most interesting links with your all their contacts. Since the launch of the feature, several hundred thousand links have already been publicly shared.
If you’re running a website, you can get your users to easily share your links with their contacts. All you have to do, is build a link with up to 3 GET parameters.
Here is a sample link:
http://www.netvibes.com/share accepts the following parameters:
title: Title for the shared link (my be URL-encoded);
url: The link itself (must be URL-encoded);
autoclose: Set it to 1 if you want the popup window to close after submission.
To URL-encode your links, you can use the function
urlencode in PHP or
We tried to make it easy for anyone to integrate those links in any page by keeping it very simple. However, if you’re looking for turnkey solutions, some universal sharing buttons have already integrated Netvibes and you may use one of them.
