You'll notice these new actions on the photo details page:
I've gone ahead and added social media buttons so that a link to the photo you are on can be shared.
This brought to light many problems with integrating with these social plugins. Namely Privacy.
Now... I'm not a hit the share button kind of person, as you should have been able to gleen from the fact the I created my own photo/blogging site rather than use someone elses template.
If I start going around and referencing facebook.js and twitter.js etc there is no telling what those lib's do. I don't want those sites to track user's on my site especially if They haven't clicked on their button. Nore do I want to police what when and how these js are loaded and used.
I have opted for hunting down url templates which can achieve sharing. It offers less advanced sharing features, but way better security for my users.
I have not tested it a 100%, I have enabled bug tracking here so if you have any issues enter them there.
