We hope you've noticed the new social media/email sharing buttons on our comic pages. We were beyond thrilled to roll out these updates to GoComics.com to make it easier for you to show off your favorite comics. Thanks to our Tech Gods for making this possible!
Previous Sharing on GoComics
Most of you probably remember what sharing used to look like, but for comparison's sake, we've included this image for you. You'll see that our sharing options were buried under a "SHARE" tab. Sorry about that!
Notice we've unburied our sharing options, making it easier than ever to quickly share comics with your friends via social media while still keeping all of the essentials. Our new sharing buttons also scroll with you while you read the comments! See image below.
Let's do a quick breakdown of the new sharing updates ...
Clicking the "Like" button allows you to quickly "LIKE" a comic and post it to your timeline for all your friends to see! (NOTE: You do not have to post the comic to your timeline. If you prefer not to post, then click "close" after clicking the "Like" button.)
Tweet your favorites to your followers! We've pre-filled the tweet copy, but feel free to edit and write your own witty comment!
"+1" to publicly recommend a comic to your circles.
Clicking the "Pin it" button will result in a pop-up window, which allows you to pin a comic to an existing or new board. In the example below, we've created a new board.
Clicking the Reddit icon will open a new tab or browser window for you to submit a comic. Again, we've pre-filled the copy for this; feel free to write your own clever title.
Easily compose and share comics via email by clicking on the envelope icon.
More Sharing Services
Want to share comics on different platform? No problem. Click the "SHARE" button and you'll see a menu listing several more social/sharing services to choose from.
That's it for sharing! Now, we'll go over a few more updates to the comic pages ...
Adding to My Comics Page
Don't worry-- even though it doesn't say it, you can still add cartoons to your My Comics Page by clicking the green "+".
Favoriting/Adding Comics to Collections
Simply click the star icon to add a comic to your "Favorites" or start a new collection of comics. Learn more about collections here.
Click the downward arrow to see a list of other options you can do with our comics.
Since we've removed the zoom icon from the options bar under comics, you can now simply hover over the comic with your mouse, then click to zoom-in.
Lastly, we've added a "LIKE" button for our GoComics Facebook page. You can find this at the top right of every page on the site. Click "like" to receive daily comics from us in your news feed! We also share industry news and host weekly giveaways. We're also on Twitter, Pinterest, G+, Instagram and Tumblr!
That's it! We'd love to hear from you. Tell us what you think of these enhancements in the comments!
