Frequently Asked Questions

What is a WhatsApp share button?

A WhatsApp share button allows users to easily share to WhatsApp in just a single click, easily sharing a website URL, blog post, or other link via a simple and easy-to-use share button on your website or blog. When you install a WhatsApp share button on your website or blog, you enable visitors to seamlessly share your content with all their friends and contacts – no copy-and-pasting or manual app-switching required.

What are share buttons?

Share buttons, generally, are those floating and/or sticky buttons (rectangular or square logo buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, WhatsApp, etc.) that allow you to share a website, link, etc. via a single click, either via a website’s share buttons or via share buttons built in to your iOS, Android, or Windows smartphone.

Whereas sharing content via mobile or desktop was once a multi-step process that involved several apps and manual copy+pastes; today, it’s much easier – and usually a one-step process, thanks to share buttons.

How do I share my blog on WhatsApp?

The easiest way to make your blog shareable on WhatsApp is to add an inline or sticky WhatsApp share button. Once this is enabled, blog visitors will be able to click the WhatsApp button on your blog/website and easily share to WhatsApp to send the link and/or content to their contacts.

If you do not enable one-click WhatsApp sharing, your blog may be shared via the 7-step process, outlined above.

Do you have to give someone your number for WhatsApp?

Yes. In order to initiate a chat, call, or video chat with someone via WhatsApp, you must have their phone number in your contact book. That said, if someone initiates the chat with you – in other words, if they add your number to their contact book and contact you first – you may continue communications without adding their information to your contact book. Note that, if you simply want to make your content shareable via WhatsApp, you do not have to provide a phone number; just enable the ShareThis WhatsApp share button.

How can I share my WhatsApp account?

In order to connect with other WhatsApp users, you must share your phone number. (Note that, if you simply want to make your content shareable via WhatsApp, you do not have to provide a phone number; just enable the ShareThis WhatsApp share button.) To share your WhatsApp account, you may either provide your WhatsApp phone number – via contact card or simple numeric text (ex. “My phone number is +11234567890”) – or, you may initiate a WhatsApp contact. (Note: To initiate, you must be in possession of the other person’s WhatsApp number.) Once you make first contact, the other person will see your phone number, which they may then add to their address book.
