Hi everybody,
I need to have a social elements on my webpage/form enabling somebody to share it on Social Media.
I don't have plenty of experience using social elements for sharing, and I couldn't find any CC document explaining this matter, but while it seems to me that I can manage with Twitter and LinkedIn, I get an error when trying to share it on Facebook.
Is there some special format to be used for the webpage (URL) link which is to be shared on Facebook?
Are there any other important notes, remarks, or recommendations regarding this matter in general (Share using Social element)?
Thanks in advance,
Z.

Develop your website from scratch en use flexbox layout for layout your form.

It is not the matter of using flexbox (BTW, I'm using it) or not.
I was just asking for some help on Social Media - option Share.

I'm still testing but it seems like the problem is caused by the URL format made by Form Designer:
The original URL made by Side Designer is "http://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?url=your_domain" (Facebook returns error), while if you change it to "http://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=your_domain" it works.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
