  1. Great idea, but I wonder if visitors would work out the highlighting text part?

    I use the Buffer App for Chrome, which does a similar thing: it allows you to highlight text and send to various social platforms.

    1. Exactly what i thought. Looks brilliant but not sure how useful it would be.

  2. As someone with the (perhaps bad) habit of idly highlighting things as I read, I find this to be a pretty obtrusive feature.

    1. As someone who also idly highlights things as I read, that’s a pretty understandable sentiment. That’s why the plugin carefully places the button above the highlighted text, to avoid popping over something you are likely to be reading. If you have any ideas about how I could make the menu less obtrusive, let me know. I may add a configuration option to allow site owners to choose whether they want the Quotable button to show up just on blockquotes, just on selected text, or both.

        You should probably do that anyway, the more option there is more people will use it.
        Sounds great by the way, I’ll check out the plugin. I think this adds value even if very few people use it because it gives the impression that you’re a social and open company. It adds to the personality of the brand.

  3. This plugin is very cool but it has some problems in coding with other languages..

  4. I also use Buffer for this as it also handles images. I wonder whether it handled text highlighted on touchscreen though given browsing trends. I don’t think Buffer does.
