Share Bible verses with your Facebook friends from Bible Gateway

Have you ever wished there was a simple way to share Bible verses with friends while you’re visiting Bible Gateway? We’ve listened to your suggestions, and at the new Bible Gateway, we’ve made it easy to share Bible passages through Facebook, Twitter, and email. Here’s how to do it.

First, go to the new Bible Gateway preview site.

Right from the homepage, you can share the Verse of the Day—just look for these Facebook, Twitter, and Email buttons in the top right corner of the Verse of the Day box:

We’ve tried to place these icons everywhere on Bible Gateway where there’s content that lends itself to sharing. These icons appear on all Bible verse and passage pages (for example, see them on the passage page for John 3:16), as well as on individual devotional pages.

Clicking on one of these buttons opens a window in which you can share the verse on Facebook, Twitter, or email respectively:

If you’ve never shared content like this through Facebook or Twitter, the sharing application (ShareThis) will ask you to log in to your social network and grant permission to integrate with your account. Once you’ve done so, just review the verse, customize the message as you wish, and press Share to send it along to your friends!

Note that you aren’t limited to sharing on Facebook or Twitter; you can also share through other social networks like LinkedIn, Yahoo, and others by clicking on the appropriate icon at the bottom of the window. You can even send your message to more than one social network by simply selecting more than one social network icon.

That’s it! We hope you find this useful the next time you stumble across a timely Bible verse that you want to share with someone who could use a bit of Scriptural encouragement or insight.
