Techmeme adds Sharing Button

Techmeme has added a subtle yet powerful sharing option.

A small button now appears in the upper left hand corner next to the story headline for those who wish to share on Twitter or Facebook. In addition, the new button lets you share to Techmeme or directly to the original post:

Currently the functionality extends to Twitter and Facebook and offers both short and full URLs.

In the comments section in his blog post yesterday, Techmeme founder Gabe Rivera commented "Now that we have our new data center in Oregon up and running, we felt it was full speed ahead on the sharing buttons."

The new button uses the OpenShare Icons design and there's simply no doubt that it will increase the already popular aggregator's page views to a new and wider audience, and potentially more frequently to the many of us who go there each day for a quick take on the tech landscape.
