Pocket Introduces New Sharing Features

April 17, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Today, Pocket introduced some new sharing features. One of the main features is being able to send to friends. Pocket is calling it “a new way to share with the people who matter to you”. The update also brings you a completely redesigned share menu that includes the share with friends feature we just talked about. Pocket says that sharing to social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr is pretty popular, but users of Pocket tend to share via email much more often. So Pocket set out to improve how to share it with your friends.

You can also now add shared content to your list. You can share content on Pocket, so once a friend sends you something on Pocket it will appear in your inbox. You’ll be able to see their comments along with any highlighted quotes that your friends chose to share with you.

Pocket’s New share menu and friend shortcuts looks really nice. It shows your most used services like Twitter, Evernote, Buffer, Facebook and more. In addition, once you’ve shared content with friends or family, you’ll find shortcuts to share content with recent friends right from the share menu. Making it even easier than ever before.

We all know that a year ago, Read it later became Pocket. Also went over a huge overhaul. Pocket now saves over 35 million items per month and Pocket is now available on Mac, Chrome and Safari in addition to Android and iOS. Their network of developers and publishers have also grown to 12,000.

Pocket is a pretty popular app. I use it all the time in Chrome and on Android. I first started using it last year when they rebranded themselves from Read it Later to Pocket and have been using it ever since. So how many of you use Pocket?
