HBSMR WEB: Social Integration

HBSMR WEB record detail pages can also include social sharing and commenting if desired. These provide simple ways of engaging more audiences and allowing them to provide feedback and new information to the HER.

Social sharing is achieved using AddThis, a widely used 3rd-party platform that is free for this kind of use. An AddThis account is needed (in the name of the site owners, usually the HER Officer). AddThis is hugely configurable in terms of how the sharing tools look, which social platforms are enabled (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc) and which pages are sharable.

Commenting is achieved using Disqus, another ubiquitous 3rd-party tool allowing discussion and posting photos and other files. Again, an account is needed to set this up, and again it is hugely configurable. In particular it is possible to set different levels of moderation to suit requirements.
