I often find link posts I would like to share with my fediverse followers (Mastodon et al.). I was looking for a “share” icon or something similar.

I know I can just share the url of the webpage, but maybe an integrated share button would be useful to others too ? Or does it exist and I didn’t find it ?

Thanks

you must follow the Lemmy community of your choice from your fediverse account, it’s all what you need to do. But we aware that as far as I know Misskey don’t federate with Lemmy servers.

Hi ,thanks. I searched for onoffled@lemmy.nl and subscribed to myself, so this means it is federated, right ? Do you know Is there a way to create a post from another instance, or is it limited to comments ?

@onoffled I guess you mean sharing to a fediverse server who does not federate with lemmy.ml?

Hmm, not sure. I’m kinda new to this fediverse thing. How can I know if my misskey home server is federated with lemmy.ml ? If it is, how can I share ?

@onoffled @oneled You can try to paste the url of the post into your instance’s searchbar and see if it finds it. If not, try to search for a community (in the form community@lemmy.ml) and subscribe to it. A few days after doing that I could find any lemmy.ml post

Hmm, I think I’m getting the whole point of it. I found this lemmy account on the miskey home serve I use. Thanks for the guidance!

I just noticed you mentioned my misskey account. How did you know it was me ?

@onoffled I thought it was you as you have similar name, similar profile pic and followed me from misskey around the time you commented on Lemmy

It looks like an icon of a chain - that’s the link to the post. Or take a look at this browser add-on its exactly what you need! https://lemmy.ml/post/152344
