Send Targeted Traffic to Your Site with the Facebook Send Button

Last Month, Facebook launched a new social plugin called the “send” button. Akin the “like” button before it, the plugin has the potential to drive traffic to content. The difference is that where the “like” button is for people to publicly share something with their friends, the “send” button is more for personal sharing. You can send something directly to a single person or to a specific group of people.

“We designed the Send button to be used alongside the Like button,” says Facebook’s Abe Parvand. “By including both on your website, people will have ability to broadcast the things they like and also send it to specific people.”

“The Send button drives traffic by letting users send a link and a short message to the people that would be most interested,” he says. “They don’t need to leave the web page they’re on or fill out a long, annoying form. Compared to the alternatives, the Send button has fewer required steps, and it removes the need to look up email addresses by auto-suggesting friends and Groups.”
