Overview
This feature integrates popular social networks (such as Facebook,Twitter, Linkedin or Google+ ) into Tiki. It enables Tiki to engage and interact with your members within these networks without using the client's browser. It is important to considere that not all meta tags are necessary and used by each of the popular social networks.


With FaceBook proeminence, most of the social networks "learned" to detect and used the Open Graph Protocole tags that are used by Facebook. This means that, even if you don't have specific Linkedin or Twitter Cards specific tags, Linkedin and Twitter will read, as a fallback, FaceBook og tags (if they are correctly set). Tiki Social Network parameters and tags are based on that fact (as are many other web applications) and avoid duplication when it is not necessary. If you want to use specific HTML head tags that are not set in the Tiki control panel defaults, you can use the PluginMetaTag - (It will available in Tiki17 but should be very soon integrated in Tiki16).

Adding the Google +1 icon

Go to http://www.google.com/intl/en/webmasters/+1/button/index.html for the latest code. At the time of writing this, the example code was valid. Customize the button using the form on the Google +1 button page. Copy-paste the code made on the Google page, such as

<!-- Place this tag where you want the +1 button to render -->
<div class="g-plusone" data-size="small"></div>

and input it where you want the button to be displayed using the PluginHTML or in a user (custom) module.

The JavaScript, such as

<!-- Place this render call where appropriate -->
  (function() {
    var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true;
    po.src = 'https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
  })();

goes in the Look and Feel custom JavaScript textarea. Paste it there as illustrated (the script opening and closing tags shouldn't be input, in Tiki 7 at least).

Further customize it by adding the metatag information. As of Tiki 7 there's no way to modify the html tag by adding the itemscope and itemtype attributes, but a future release of Tiki should have this functionality.

Using Twitter and Facebook in Shoutbox

When the site has been registered with Twitter and/or Facebook, an admin can allow the Shoutbox module to show two additional checkboxes by setting the options "Tweet" and "Facebook".
If the user has the permission to use Twitter/Facebook and has authorized the site to send tweets or post to his Facebook wall, the Shoutbox will offer a checkbox Tweet with Twitter and a checkbox Post on Facebook wall. By activating these checkboxes, in addition to sending a shout, the message will also be sent by Twitter or posted on your Facebook wall.

Using Twitter and Facebook to share a page

When the above prerequisites are given, a user who authorized the site with Twitter/Facebook can use the Share feature not only to send emails/internal messages, but also tweet them and like those pages on his Facebook wall.

Note
The following content will eventually be migrated to the Social Networks section of the Tiki User and Admin Guides.

Using ShareThis

You can also allow your users to send links from pages in your tiki to many social networking sites by means of the widget from ShareThis (http://www.sharethis.com).

Since Tiki6 the widget "share this" is also available in blog posts if you enable it at: "Admin home > Blogs > General Settings > Sharing on social networks > ShareThis buttons"

And since Tiki6.1, it's also available for articles: "Admin home > Articles > General Settings > Sharing on social networks > ShareThis buttons"

In trackers, you can use the widget "Share This" by means of adding a call to PluginShareThis in a static text field.
