I want to share my binder with someone, which link should I send them by email/twitter/etc?
It turns out there are many different links you could share and none of them are obviously broken when you first try them. However only one of them is what you really want to share.
What are the options?
Only the first one is “the right one”. The second and third one will probably work. The last one will appear to work when the sharer tries it, but won’t work for anyone else.
I think for anyone but a Binder expert it is not at all clear which of these is the right one. They all look big and complicated with stuff in them that makes a limited amount of sense.
The question is: how can we change the UI so that a very large fraction of users pick the right link to share because it is the link they get when they do the obvious thing to get the link to share.
This raises the question: what is the obvious way of getting the sharable link?
- copy link from address-bar
- copy link from a sharing widget
- construct link by hand
- use a “share this on X” button
Once we have a bit of data and feedback (please do post it as replies) maybe we can start figuring out how to change the user experience so that “the obvious thing” for more users leads them to gettinnng the one true link for sharing.
