We trying to implement decent social sharing module for our app and have 2 question, which are pretty much related:
Is it important to have visible text which directly say to user what to do, like
Share with friends,
sharenear the social media icons (facebook, twitter, instagram) V.S. just having social icons alone is enough trigger for an action? (this is a main question)
Was there any actual study about how it's affect sharing if
- a User see options already on the screen (let's say fb, twitter, instagram)
- b There is single share button, and when user click on it, there is dialog with actual sharing options appear, or just additional icons appear on the screen.
If there is no any research regarding this, what is your personal opinion regarding preferable way to go, if the idea is to get more content shared.
Yes, I saw relative questions, but they seams about web, not mobile, which I think kind of important. But anyway, my main problem is
to have actionable text or not.
