I've had multiple requests from my readers to offer more social sharing options (i.e. Twitter, Mix, Tumblr, Flipboard, etc) so they can more easily share my articles.

We actually used to have many more social sharing options on articles, but our data showed that they were hardly ever used. We eventually kept only the ones that readers used frequently in order to get our pages to load faster (something that benefits all readers).
Most browsers have built in sharing options these days, so many users are using those instead of on-page options anyway.

'SHORT-CUTS' - An idea!The success of Bubblews, despite the payments issues etc. has showcased the opportunity for short articles shared internally within a community. HP has Q&A and the Forums but community involvement has declined IMO, I think for various reasons, as well, Q&A has...
