Share sections of content using full bleed widgets with anchors

If an anchor link is added to the full bleed widget, the FBW is now a “shareable” section with dynamic social meta created from the image of the FBW and the first paragraph following the image.

By way of example, the default social sharing attributes of a post are determined by the post’s:

  • main image
  • title
  • first paragraph of copy

So if a user were to share this featured post on Facebook, the following preview would be generated:

If a user were to share an anchor created by the FBW within this featured post example, the preview would update with dynamically generated social meta.

Notice how the url has updated after a user scrolls to that content. The fixed social buttons at the bottom of the screen also update to share the content of the url:

We take the image of the FBW and the first paragraph following the FBW anchor and update the social meta with those values. So an entry shared within a featured post using an FBW anchor would generate the above social preview on Facebook.

This extends our social promotion options for a featured post using FBWs by creating more ways to share individual sections of content within a larger post.
