BBC iPlayer Introduces Share Tools
A few weeks ago, we launched a new feature in BBC iPlayer: Series Record as part of our continuous evolution of BBC iPlayer. Yesterday we made some improvements to some of the social aspects of BBC iPlayer, with the launch of Share Tools.
Sharetools on a BBC iPlayer page
Just look for the 'Share' icon underneath the player window, when you're watching or listening to any programme.
These allow you to share the page with your friends across Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.
We've been listening to your feedback and analysing how the new site performs since we came out of beta last September. As a consequence, Share Tools replaces the 'recommend' option on playback pages, making it even easier to share programmes with your friends.
I hope you enjoy sharing your favourite programmes with friends and family.
