WordPress.com bloggers can now include share buttons for WhatsApp, Telegram, and Skype

...

Omnipresent publishing platform WordPress.com has gained a triumvirate of new share buttons today, with bloggers now able to offer readers easy options to share articles across WhatsApp, Telegram, and Skype.

Adding to the existing share-button options — which include sharing with the likes of Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit — this latest move makes a great deal of sense for Automattic, the company behind the hosted version of the content management system (CMS).

Indeed, WhatsApp passed one billion users earlier this year, while mobile messaging counterpart Telegram sailed past 100 million. Skype is Skype, and the Microsoft-owned communications tool remains hugely popular on both the desktop and mobile, though it only launched its share button back in November.

To integrate the new buttons into your WordPress.com site, head to “My Sites,” then “Sharing” in your dashboard, where you’ll now see these three new options.

WordPress.com — not to be confused with the free and open-source CMS developed by the WordPress Foundation, which can be hosted anywhere — hit its 10-year anniversary last August. In those 10 years, it has seen 2.5 billion blog posts across 137 languages. Today, one-quarter of all websites are either hosted on WordPress.com or use the WordPress open-source software.
