Share buttons are a great way for publishers to get their content seen across social media platforms. Facebook, Twitter and Reddit are among the most used share buttons, with Pinterest also doing a good job with images. And now, Skype is rolling out its own social share button.

Skype is mostly known for its VoIP services that lets you talk with people form all over the world. But the Microsoft-owned company is now looking to do much more as a social platform as well.
With its own social sharing button, Skype is entering the world of social news sharing. And that could be big, for a platform that has been facing difficulty to make it big since Facebook – and others – have decided to develop their messaging services.
The Skype share button is already available on MSN.com and Sify.com in India. But developers can already add the button to their own website via an API.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
As expected, once you click on the share button, you’ll be prompted to sign in with your Skype credentials. With that done, you will then be able to share links with your friends, and add your own message as well.
Personally, I’m not convinced there is a room for a Skype share button. What do you think?
